The KW Guardian Pharmacy is an independently owned Waterloo pharmacy but is a member of the Guardian banner of the Drug Trading Company which means that we are uniquely positioned to effectively meet our patients’ needs. Being an independent pharmacy means our staff can get to know you better, while being part of the Guardian banner means that we have access to the most current resources available.
We welcome you to enjoy the experience of the same pharmacist and have your prescriptions prepared by staff that you are familiar with. At KW Guardian Pharmacy you aren’t just a patient, you are a friend and fellow member of the community. We are committed to ensuring that you receive the best medication therapy possible and we will work with you to make sure that your health is put first!
The KW Pharmacy started as a small medical pharmacy in its current location in 1999. At that time the concentration was filling prescriptions, which was typical for a community pharmacy.
Since 1999 we have expanded the store twice to our present size of nearly 2000 square feet. Included in our facility are:
- A large prescription preparation area
- A private counseling room
- A custom medication compounding lab
Over the Counter
In addition, the bulk of our store is made up of over the counter products including:
- Diabetic care products
- Home health care products
- Mobility aids
- Compression therapy products
- A self-use blood pressure monitor
Changes to our store we have also changed our practice which have mirrored recent changes in the profession of pharmacy. We now offer many extended services such as:
- Custom medication compounding
- Prescription counseling
We are continually changing and growing to help our patients so don’t be surprised to see more changes to our practice to better meet your needs!
