As an independent pharmacist, you have a clear choice when it comes to selecting a wholesale pharmaceutical distributor.

Will you align yourself with one of the Big 3 or with an independent pharmacy distributor?
Of course getting the lowest prices on pharmaceutical products is a key strategy for independent pharmacies. Smaller wholesale pharmaceutical distributors can still offer great deals on wholesale prescription drugs, but they also have services tailored to helping grow and maximize the profits of smaller community pharmacies. An independent wholesale pharmaceutical distributor can offer brand and generic drug prices that are every bit as competitive as larger organizations.
When choosing your wholesale pharmaceutical distributor, take a look at the many advantages offered by H. D. Smith, the #1 independent wholesaler in the country.
