Your Friendly Neighborhood Pharmacy! 

Our Mission

We are here to provide residents in Peterborough with the highest level of healthcare services, starting with your medications.  We also recognize healthcare extends beyond medication and we approach healthcare holistically with your well-being as our main focus.

Our Philosophy

Patients are treated as people in our pharmacy and not simply a line waiting for their medications.  We listen, respect, and try to tailor a healthcare plan specifically for you.

Why Us?

There are no bad questions and we want all our patients to feel secure in addressing all their healthcare needs.  Are you simply wanting your medications filled in a reasonable time, we can make that a promise to you.  Are you looking for experts to help manage your health conditions? We make it a priority! Prescription transfers are easy and we can help facilitate the entire process.

Our Friendly Neighbors

Rosco P Coltrane (Google Review):

"Having only just discovered this pharmacy/walk in clinic a few days ago, I have to say that I am extremely pleased with everything these fine people did for me. Being on a wait list for a new doctor, (...) literally minutes later I had my prescription and was on my way. There are still people who treat you with kindness and empathy. Much respect."

Alexander James (Google Review) 

"I switched to Guardian pharmacy because someone told me their customer service is amazing.
This is the best pharmacy I have ever dealt with. The pharmacist has some of the best customer service. He was so friendly and acted like he has known me for years. He sounds like he really cares. The original girl (Amber?) who answered the phone and took my initial information was also extremely nice and called me back promptly. The pharmacy delivered to my house for free, (...) I had Guardian switch my prescription from Costco, setup my account and deliver my prescription to my house all in a couple of hours. Incredible service!!!!"
