Family owned and operated since 1972
Twin City Pharmacy & Surgical was started by brothers Ralph and Thomas Cassio. As the business grew, ownership transitioned to Sandy Cassio, Thomas Cassio, Jr. and William Ashnault, RPh in 2006.
We take pride in being a modern pharmacy with old fashioned values. You will always be greeted with friendly faces and be treated like family. We take special orders, so you will always find what you need.
We expanded our products and services to provide you with more comprehensive medical care. We now offer Durable Medical Equipment (DME), ostomy care, respiratory care, surgical care, and iMedicare.
