Newton’s Prescription Pharmacy & Drugstore since 1985
Keyes Drug is a prescription pharmacy that is committed to providing the highest quality of care for each customer. A family-owned business, Keyes Drug is owned by brothers and pharmacists Raied and Saad Dinno. Their father, Ramzi Dinno, who is also a pharmacist, bought the drugstore in 1985 and since then the family has focused on superior customer service, including free delivery in the Newton area.
Keyes Drug offers prescriptions, compounded medications and other specialty items such as Baby Ease™, our own natural diaper rash ointment formulated to prevent and heal mild or severe cases of diaper rash. Our pharmacists – some of whom have worked at Keyes for decades – are passionate about providing individualized care to each customer, including one-on-one counseling for prescriptions and health issues, and care coordination to ensure that prescriptions are authorized and expedited. We listen to and care about our patients’ concerns and tailor all of our compounded medications to the needs of each individual. We also work very closely with physicians and other health care providers to determine the best possible therapy for our patients.

What Our Customers Say
We were very fortunate to be able to use Keyes Drug as the booster clinic for the residents in the building I manage. The residents are older adults and are justifiably concerned about contracting Covid19. the staff from Keyes was incredibly professional, organized and empathetic towards everyone. The clinic went smoothly and ran efficiently. The residents were so pleased by the outstanding service provided that they have requested Keyes be asked back for future vaccination clinics. Thank you to all the Keyes staff for accommodating our very frail residents and for making things so easy for our staff.

Ray and his pharmacy team were incredible partners for us. We ran a COVID-19 booster clinic in the fall of 2021 and he successfully vaccinated over 600 older adults in independent living facilities across 5 campuses. His team was kind, efficient, and had experience with our population so it was a great experience for adults who attended. Thank you, Keyes Drug!

Fantastic service here! Such a friendly pharmacy. My boyfriend and I came here to get out booster shots. I had booked ahead but he hadn’t and they happily accepted him and worked amazingly and very timely always with a smile on there face. Very gentle with the shot and made us both feel at ease. Overall a fantastic pharmacy! I highly recommend! Would give higher than 5 stars if we could!

Over the years I have met various people in the store and found them all to be helpful, kind, and passionate about helping out. Their process of compounding is unique for this area. Their computer system is easy to use for refills and new prescriptions. They call my doctor as needed when my refills have expired. They do flu shots in-house and in private. their inventory is full, and prices seem reasonable. Mostly they are very friendly and explain all the prescriptions to me when I have questions.

We used Keyes pharmacy for our booster clinics and were met with great communication, timely work, kindness, and compassion towards the residents and staff. The staff at Keyes pharmacy made the process manageable and easy to work with – beginning with planning. They were flexible and accommodated the needs of residents with various needs.

Shanna C. on Facebook
Best pharmacy – super caring staff, personalized, knowledgeable service, excellent selection of durable medical equipment items (& can always order, if what need isn’t in stock), some less expensive but still qualitative brands, and interesting vitamin supplement options. After becoming a customer here, you’ll never want to settle & use chain pharmacies for your prescription needs.
Sara B. on Google
I can’t say enough about the wonderful customer service at Keyes. Our son’s prescription is not covered by our insurance and a very sweet pharmacist at our local CVS recommended we check with Keyes to see if it’s less expensive. Sure enough, it’s $30 less and they mail it to our house! Every time I have called they are a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend them to anyone.

Brandon W. on Facebook
Friendly, knowledgeable staff who greet you with a warm smile. One of my favorite aspects about Keyes is that they always seem to have at least two people out front dedicated to customer service, and helping find what they need or answer questions. And no matter WHO is working, they always have stickers for my Granddaughter without asking…

They are very personal and it’s more like going to a family doctor. They contact anyone they need to for you. It is a small pharmacy and they always know you when you walk in.

Review on Angie’s List
Keyes Is a wonderful drugstore with a fantastic staff. They take the time to listen, suggest and help. They will order products that are not in stock or make suggestions for other drugs that might work. It’s a great store with a nice selection! Unlike bigger stores, they are trustworthy with my prescriptions.
Review on Angie’s List
After some horrendous experiences with big box store pharmacies, I went looking for an independent, family owned pharmacy for prescriptions for my family, and found a gem in Keyes Drug. In addition to their service and competence, they stock many hard to find products, such as reparative hand lotions, surgical splints, etc.. We now go nowhere else, because Keyes is willing to go above and beyond in terms of answering questions, quickly getting medications, and even flavoring children’s meds.
