Alliston Family Pharmacy (AFP) is an independent community pharmacy established in 2002 by two pharmacists, Johnny Wong and Wing J. Kwan.
AFP's vision is to be the best clinical pharmacy in New Tecumseth.
People are usually stressed at some level when walking in to a pharmacy looking for health solutions.
Our mission is to reduce stress by providing efficient and professional prescription services, by bringing new and innovative products and services, by providing information and education, and most importantly, by treating people with respect.
We would like you to walk out of the pharmacy with a smile (one of the most potent medicine).
Being a small independent pharmacy, AFP focuses on "Keeping It Simple and Special". Our patients choose to come to us because we are efficient, friendly and professional.
We respect the fact that time is precious, hence we always make sure that your prescriptions are taken care of right away. Many of our new patients were surprised and sometime shocked by our efficient service. Honestly, it takes time to see a doctor, why spend more time waiting to get prescriptions filled.
