Meet Our Team
Neil EdlenPharmacist, Owner
After graduating college at the University of Florida, I moved to Asheville, NC to begin my career as a pharmacist healthcare professional. I have traveled to many places, but I have always found my way back to the state of North Carolina and that is where I began my journey as a small business owner with the purchase of Gates Pharmacy in Mount Airy, NC 9 years ago. It has given me great pleasure to be able to help out our community and provide exemplary services to the city of Mount Airy as well as the rural parts of Surry County. Several years later, we were able to expand with keeping two pharmacies in Rocky Mount, NC independently owned and operating; and are now excited about the opportunity to help individuals in Greensboro, NC.
Helping patients in communities that have been underserved has been one of the great benefits of being a small business owner and having the flexibility to follow passion projects in the work that can truly make a difference in one patient’s life at a time. Being able to assist patients by helping them find affordable medication options, counseling on drug-drug interactions and being able to be truly available and accessible to your patients on any health concerns they have has been one of the most rewarding parts of my healthcare career. I am excited to expand the reach of patients so that we can help make a difference in their health and life and build bonds to strengthen the community in which they live.
