Providing Professional and Friendly Service Since 1985

Professional and friendly service has always been a staple at Gates Pharmacy. Our goal is to maintain an honest and trusting relationship with all of our patients, their families, and the medical community of the greater Mount Airy region. We also give back to our community on a regular basis by volunteering our time and resources for many charitable organizations in our area.


Our mission is to provide all of our patients with the highest quality of care, while fostering an environment of professionalism, empathy, and respect.
