About us


Vermont Family Pharmacy was opened in 1983.  Manny Chernoff opened the store in December and in 1996 brought his daughter Lynne Vezina into the pharmacy full time.  Both are Pharmacists, graduates of Massachusetts College of Pharmacy.

This pharmacy has always concentrated on incredible customer service.  Patients are amazed at the wonderful service they get at this pharmacy. Pharmacists take the time to explain new medications to the patient. Our software also does a cross check for drug interactions for each patient.  We accept most insurance plans including most Medicare D plans.  We take Master Card, Visa, Discover and American Express.  We also take HSA  and FSA cards.

In March of 1989 we began an affiliation with Prescription Compounding Centers of America.  We are a full compounding pharmacy.  We are happy to make any custom compound for a patient.  Just have your doctor phone in a prescription.  Some insurance plans cover compound reimbursement let us know which plan you have!

We have always had a supply of wound care items.  We offer many dressings in single packages instead of having to buy a big box that you don’t need.  We have over 12 different kinds of bandaging tape.  We have Duoderm, Tegaderm, Mepilex and Mepitel dressings available in stock.

Home Health Care items are stocked here.  We have Wheelchairs, Walkers,  Crutches, Raised Toilet Seats, Commodes, Pillows, Foot insoles, Foot Orthotics, Urinals, Shower Supplies including Grab bars for the bathroom, Bath Seats and Bath Benches.  Many items are available to rent or purchase.  We also have the ability to special order in items and have them here the next day.

We carry the Nature’s Bounty line of vitamins and supplements.

Our staff at the store has over  50 years of experience!
