Prescription Delivery & Curbside Service
For prescriptions, we recommend that you take advantage of our prescription delivery service. Transfer your prescription to us and it will be delivered to you the same day! If you want to pick up your prescription at our pharmacy, we highly recommend our curbside service – we will bring it outside to your vehicle

We have increased our sanitizing practices and doing all we can to ensure our pharmacy is cleaned on a regular basis (door knobs/handles, counters, registers, credit card machines, pens, etc.).  Staff have been instructed to take strict measures to ensure sanitizing practices are followed in order to protect our customers, patients and our staff.  Also we have posted signs on our doors instructing our patients and customers not to come in IF they show any symptoms of COVID-19 such as Cough/Shortness of breath/Fever; to stay in their vehicles, call us and we will bring it outside to their vehicle so to limit visits inside the pharmacy and limit exposures.    We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will adjust our daily operations if need be in order to protect our customers and staff.

Delivery service is an essential aspect of our business and it will continue and be available for our customers and the community.   We have taken steps to minimize drivers’ exposure to potential cases by surveying delivery customers of their health status  and have implemented measures to ensure the individual/family get the delivery while keeping our drivers safe.

As of now our suppliers are still delivering to us and have begun implementing some allocation provisions on certain medications to ensure availability equally to all pharmacies.  We are trying hard to keep stock of essential items needed during this outbreak.  Of course we have run out of hand sanitizer, alcohol, thermometers, and masks, but we are always on the look-out for more and hope to have in the near future.  We’ve had to implement limited quantity measures on certain items to ensure fair availability to all of our customers and patients.

We plan to stay open and our staff are ready to serve our community now and into the future. However, we may adjust operating hours as dictated by federal, state or local governmental mandates.   Of course safety for all is essential and foremost on our minds as we deal with this virus.   Keyes Drug is here to assist in any way we can during these unprecedented times.

Thank you, stay well.

Newton’s Prescription Pharmacy & Drugstore since 1985

Keyes Drug pharmacist assisting customer in selecting medical product.

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.

Compounding Pharmacy, Newton, MA

Keyes Drug works collaboratively with physicians and health care providers to provide compounded medications for patients who have unique health needs that off-the-shelf, manufactured medications cannot meet.

Baby Ease® is our own diaper rash ointment designed to prevent and heal mild to severe cases of diaper rash. It is available over-the-counter, without a prescription
