If you want personal service from people who care, welcome home.

When you visit Nekos Saugerties Pharmacy , one thing stands out immediately: a patient-oriented pharmacy with a strong emphasis on customer service. Pete Nekos is a pharmacist who knows something about making you feel like family. He comes from a family that has been in business in Ulster County for over a hundred years, and he brings that family tradition to both of his pharmacies.

There are over 20,000 independent pharmacies in the United States, and many continue to thrive because of their outstanding customer service and commitment to the health of their patients and communities. In a widely reported survey on pharmacy satisfaction, independent pharmacies scored highest on professional service, knowledge, professional courtesy and speed and accuracy. 94% of those surveyed were “highly satisfied” with independent pharmacy service. In all the categories of service, the three largest pharmacy chains in the nation were far behind and at the bottom of the list.

At Nekos Pharmacy in Saugerties you won’t find beer and cigarettes, you will find healthy merchandise - vitamins and herbals, surgical braces, compression stockings, wheelchairs, walkers, canes and nebulizers. Our staff offers specialized fittings for professional quality braces, supports, orthopedic socks and compression stockings. We have a beautiful gift department and large selection of greeting cards. If there’s any home health care or health and beauty item that we don’t have, we will order it for you and have it the next morning in most cases.

Our pharmacists and pharmacy techs are happy to take the time to provide expert advice on your prescription and over-the-counter medicinal needs. We are knowledgeable and experienced and always eager to answer all your questions. We will work closely with your doctors to assure you will not run out of medicine and also will help find alternative medicines or get authorizations if your insurance doesn’t cover a drug claim.

We take most prescription insurance plans and also provide immunization services for flu and shingles vaccines. No appointment is necessary for these services and we can bill your insurance. We appreciate your patronage and invite you to experience our outstanding personal service.
