SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Twin City Pharmacy & Surgical, located on Park Avenue in South Plainfield, offers customers a prescription transfer process that is easy and hassle-free.

“Moving prescriptions that are currently with a different pharmacy over to Twin City is simple and quick. One phone call or visit to the pharmacy to request we fill your prescriptions, along with your insurance and doctor information, is all it takes to become our customer and for us to begin filling your prescriptions,” said Sandy Cassio, who, along with her cousin, Tommy Cassio, and brother-in-law Bill Ashnault, has run the family-owned business since 2007.

“If your current pharmacy is closing its doors or making you wait too long, let us help make your life a little easier,” Sandy said, noting that having all prescriptions in one place is essential.

“It protects one from confusing medications and allows us to be sure you are not taking anything that may conflict with your current therapies,” she said. “It also insures you are compliant with your dosages when we have all your records at our fingertips.”

Twin City has been family-owned and operated for nearly 45 years and, according to Sandy, plans to remain a staple in the community for decades to come.

“People never tire of being treated well. We live locally, work locally and love being a part of the community. Our customers are friends and they count on us for not only medical needs but also for information and direction,” said Sandy. “We also are in the process of expanding our ‘little shop on the corner’ to showcase our expanding line of home healthcare. We are hoping to complete our transformation this fall.”
