Services

At The KW Guardian Pharmacy we offer all of the services that you would expect from any pharmacy as well as a few unique services that many other stores cannot provide.  In addition, many of our extended services are offered free of charge!

Services like prescription dispensing and counseling, over the counter medication recommendation and counseling, as well as MedsCheck medication reviews are the more traditional pharmacy services that we offer at The KW Guardian Pharmacy.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff members are always available to meet your needs and because we are an independent store with a smaller staff you get to see the same familiar faces every time you come in to the pharmacy!

 

Standard Services

Call-in Prescription Refills

If you would prefer not to wait for your prescription refills we’ll be happy to take your order over the phone so that i’s ready for you when you come in.

Fast Prescription Filling

We dispense most prescriptions in 15 minutes or less.

If your medication is not in stock we can deliver it with next-day service. If your medication has changed one of our pharmacists will take the time to explain it to you and answer any questions you may have.

OTC Recommendations

We offer many different kinds of non-prescription or Over the Counter (OTC) medications for you to use for self-care therapy.

If you aren’t sure of the best product for you we encourage you to ask one of our pharmacists for a product recommendation. In addition, our pharmacists would be happy to inform you of how to properly use your OTC medication.

Compliance Packaging

In order to make your medication easier to take, we are able to put your prescriptions in compliance packaging. This means each dose will be easier for you to take. We offer snap cap vials for patients who have difficulties opening safety vials, as well as both standard and detachable plastic blister packs.

For more information about these products please contact us.

Free Delivery & Pickup

For those patients who are unable to make it into the pharmacy we offer a no-charge delivery service.

Additionally, we are able to pick up new prescriptions and have them dispensed and ready for your next delivery. This service is available on an as-needed basis.

Free Medication Disposal

Old or unused medications should never be washed down the sink or flushed down toilets due to the risk of environmental contamination.

In order to help protect the environment, and help you with medication disposal, we offer a Free Medication Disposal Service for all of our patients. Simply bring your old or unused medications to the pharmacy and we will dispose of them safely and properly.

Free MedsCheck Review

The MedsCheck program is a medication consultation program offered to qualifying patients. It aims to improve and simplify complicated medication therapy and improve overall health.

The program consists of regular consultations between you and a pharmacist and will include a thorough evaluation of your medication profile as well as your level of satisfaction with your particular therapy.

In addition, the notes taken and recommendations made are shared with your doctor so that your medication therapy is improved and any issues are resolved quickly.

There are several different types of MedsChecks that we offer each with different qualifying criteria.

 

Extended Services

Medication Compounding

The KW Pharmacy is one of only a few pharmacies in the area to offer Custom Medication Compounding.

With a prescription from your doctor we can create a unique medication formula that is specifically designed for you. We’re able to offer this unique service because we have a compounding lab right in our pharmacy!

Veterinary Medication Compounding

In addition to offering custom compounding for you we also offer custom compounded medications for your pets!

Veterinary compounding is an essential service for you if your pets require medication therapy due to the variability in size and species of pets. The major benefit of custom medications is that they can be flavoured specifically for your pet so that they are more likely to take their doses!

For more information about our Custom Veterinary Compounding Service please contact us to speak with one of our staff.
