Welcome to the Ashville and Circleville Apothecary!

First opened in Ashville in 1979, and later expanded to Circleville in 2004, the Ashville and Circleville Apothecary is the local independent neighborhood pharmacy for the residents of Pickaway County.

Owned and operated by local independent pharmacist Robert D. Mabe, his full-service independent pharmacies have striven to provide the best quality care that patients expect from a locally owned pharmacy for over 35 years. We take pride in setting ourselves apart from other traditional pharmacies by knowing our customers by name, and providing the best possible healthcare with a hometown feel.

Aside from dispensing medication and consultation with our patients, we are the only PCCA licensed compounding pharmacy in Pickaway County and the South Central Ohio area. True to our name as an apothecary, we specialize in working with the patient and the doctor to provide specialty tailored medications that suit their needs.

Our full-time pharmacists are currently the longest practicing pharmacists in Pickaway County and can provide countless experience in the areas of medication review, consultation, immunization services, specialty compounding, wound care and colostomy supply, athletic braces, and medication management services for long-term care and institutions. We also offer once a month medication pick up with our “Simply My Meds” program, and can individually prepackage medications.

We accept all major insurances and deliver upon request. We encourage you to call our pharmacists today, and see how the Ashville and Circleville Apothecary can help you!
