Our Story

Rancho Pharmacy, A better pharmacy!

Here to support wellness in the East County Region of San Diego.

We are Your Neighborhood Pharmacy

Years ago, a pharmacy was a small town neighborhood pharmacy were people filled their prescriptions and gathered as a community. The pharmacist knew every customer by name and children would stop by after school to grab a quick snack. Over the years pharmacy has changed from the small town neighborhood pharmacy to a less personable experience.

Sadly, pharmacy service has declined. With longer wait times, little to no communication with the pharmacist, and no options for patients with transportation difficulties, a trip to the pharmacy has become a cumbersome task.

As a pharmacist I have set out to create a pharmacy that brings back the days of the neighborhood pharmacy.  Rancho Pharmacy was created with a mission to serve the community by individualized approach.  We want to know each and every one of our patients, and greet all customers by their name. Here at Rancho Pharmacy we strive to offer convenient, reliable service. We also go beyond just filling your prescription, by offering a variety of additional services and products, including compounding, educational classes, community events and much more!

Unable to come to the pharmacy? No problem, we offer same day delivery to areas within a 5 mile radius.

At Rancho Pharmacy we are here to listen and help serve the community. Every patient should have a pharmacist they know and trust. Stop by and talk to us to learn more about Rancho Pharmacy.

We understand that each person is unique. If a patient is in need of medication that is not commercially available, we have the capability of creating a custom compound. We can also custom dosages to help patients that may have difficulty swallowing a pill.
