Health Mart Pharmacy
“Pharmacy The Way It Used To Be…”
Health Mart Pharmacy has been serving the Freeport community since 2004. Chief Pharmacist and Store Owner Scott Buda said it best: “We treat our customers like family. We’ve watched their kids grow up, their parents grow older and have always been there to meet all of their health care needs.”
Some say the “mom and pop” stores no longer exist, Health Mart knows otherwise…. They know all of their customers by name and make them feel welcome each time they visit the store.
Almost the entire Health Mart staff has been in place since the store’s inception, which is another indication of the commitment Health Mart has to not only their customers but to their staff as well. Kyle and Justin are the co-managers up front, along with Agnes, who helps out on Saturdays, and all of them are always willing to lend a hand to anyone that comes into the store. Whether selecting beach chairs, health and beauty products or home healthcare needs, they know their products inside out!
The compassionate pharmacy staff includes Naz and Scott (pharmacists), along with Debbie R. and Ingrid (technicians) who all have a wealth of experience in the medical field, which allows them to recommend the best products for their customers all the time. Debbie F., the office manager, makes sure the business runs smoothly on a daily basis.
In addition to filling prescriptions, Health Mart also offers immunizations, including the COVID-19 Vaccine, a wide arrange of Home Health Care and Surgical Supplies, Vitamins, CBD Products, Health & Beauty Aids, Household Items, Discount Greeting Cards, Gifts and Seasonal Items, plus a whole lot more!
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Health Mart never closed. They put all safety measures in place immediately and continued to serve the Freeport community, realizing that they were needed more than ever. Thankfully, the entire Health Mart staff has remained healthy throughout this time, which has allowed them to continue to serve their community, being present to answer questions and address anxieties, as well as providing the necessary products that were unavailable elsewhere.
When asked how Health Mart is able to compete with the “big box” stores that now seem to be everywhere, owner Scott Buda summed it up like this: “Our passion and commitment to providing the highest level of patient care and customer service cannot be matched by anyone, anywhere, and once we have a customer, we have them for life.”
Freeport is a village in the town of Hempstead, Nassau County, New York, US, on the South Shore of Long Island. The population was 43,713 at the 2010 census.
A settlement since the 1640s, it was once an oystering community and later a resort popular with the New York City theater community. It is now primarily a bedroom suburb but retains a modest commercial waterfront and some light industry. It is serviced by the Freeport station on the Long Island Rail Road.
