About Us

We’re no strangers to tradition; Central Drug was founded in the early 1950s as a pharmacy, gift shop and soda fountain. Our focus on the pharmacist-patient-provider relationship as well as superior customer service has given us the privilege of serving our community and surrounding area just a few blocks from Central Drug’s original location. While we specialize in compounding; let us emphasize that we are a full-line pharmacy. We provide timely service to both our “walk-in patients” as well as expedite mail-order service for patients throughout Texas.

Commitment to Excellence:

Central Drug is locally owned and operated by Steve Branch RPh & Cherise Branch APRN-BC.  

Located in Victoria, Texas, we have been serving Victoria and South Texas since 2010.

We offer you a collaborative, science -based approach to medicines that focuses on the individual. From compounding to home based infusion, Central Drug takes a unique, patient ­focused approach to medicine that helps us meet the gold standard of success in our eyes: helping you get better.
