Neels Pharmacy: Family Owned/Operated Since 1932 Specializes in Compounding & Complementary Remedies

By Jon P. Frieda, MBA

In today’s ever adapting field of healthcare, Neels Pharmacy has remained as one of the oldest independent pharmacies that has never changed hands. Hello, my name is Jon Frieda. Over the last 84 years much has changed around St. Louis with regard to the fluidity of pharmacies and pharmacy care. As the 4th generation of our family business, I can enthusiastically tell you that the first pebble of the foundation for Neels Pharmacy, laid by my great grandfather back in 1932, continues to send positive ripples throughout the St. Louis community today.

So, how did we get here? And where are we going?
Just as in 1932, Neels Pharmacy continues to place an emphasis on the Doctor-Patient-Pharmacist Relationship. When it comes to pharmacy care, Neels Pharmacy has not just filled prescriptions and formulated compounded medications for over 80 years, we’ve gone beyond, providing more than is expected! Today, we offer the latest and most clinically effective complementary remedies including clinical nutrition, homeopathy, herbal remedies, therapeutic teas, aromatherapy, essential oils, and organic and natural personal grooming products.

Our mission has always been to enhance physician practices in the St. Louis area and help patients achieve optimal health, wellness, and vitality. Our family was perfecting client relationship management long before the phrase was coined. Honesty, consistency, reliability, and unwaveringly practicing pharmacy by putting our clients and physicians first is what sets Neels Pharmacy apart and what keeps us growing and thriving today.We want to assure you that Neels Pharmacy will continue to remain a strong and vibrant pillar of the St. Louis community for generations to come.

Due to an increase in demand for our compounding services, Neels Pharmacy will be expanding our compounding operation in the coming months. As we move through this exciting transition, Neels Pharmacy will continue to provide same day compounding services for new clients, as well as existing clients with new compounded prescription orders. While we request three business days for compound refills, we routinely complete these orders within 24 hours or less. During the week, we are open from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. We offer same day compounding services on Saturdays as well, between the hours of 9:00 am and 4:00 pm. We pride ourselves on the fact that we respect the time of our doctors and clients. We believe that efficient turnaround time on compounded medications significantly impacts patient compliance and increases the likelihood of successful therapeutic outcomes. Also, we continuously provide the most accurate compounded medications by taking steps to ensure that each dose provides precisely the drug concentration ordered by the physician. For details on this, just ask! Our compounded formulation capabilities include Autism and ADD/ADHD, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement, Colorectal/ Proctological, Dental, Dermatological, Ear-Nose-Throat, Pain Management, Parasite and heavy metal detox, Veterinary, and more.

In the coming days I would love to discuss the pharmacy care needs of any residents in the St. Louis community that are considering changing to another pharmacy, especially for compounding. Our goal is to ensure that we are providing our existing and potential clients with the time, quality, service and value that Neels Pharmacy has built its business and reputation on since 1932. If you would like to contact me, or my mother Patrice Neels Frieda, owner and pharmacist in charge at Neels Pharmacy, or to order a compounded medication, please call 314-849-3123, or fax 314-849-2160.
