How it all began

Chocky White graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill in 1969. White moved to Henderson and opened Medical Arts Pharmacy in 1971 in a 600 sq ft space in the Vance Medical Arts Building.  He was the only pharmacist and only employee for several years.

Growing from 1 employee to over 25 …with SERVICE

Over the course of 45 years, White added employees and increased the size of the operation to meet the demands of a growing customer base.  We have always relied on our own customers to tell their friends and family about our service.  The philsophy here has always been to have one more employee than really necessary to deliver excellent customer service.  White now has 4 pharmacists on staff and more than 25 team members that are committed to delivering a great pharmacy experience.  Our technicians answer all phone calls and pharmacists are always available to answer questions and consult with patients.

Investing in our Community

This year, Medical Arts Pharmacy moved the operation to its new location at 253 Ruin Creek Road to better serve customers. White and his team designed the building to utilize a workflow system ensuring the quality and efficiency of the prescriptions that we fill.  The extra space has allowed Medical Arts to offer more services and a drive thru for the convenience of our customers. Our customers are often astounded at how quickly their prescriptions are ready!

The Future of Medical Arts Pharmacy

White now employs his three children, Cara Kirby, Craig White, and Brent White, to help manage and sustain the business. Cara states, ” When most people his age are considering retirement, our dad is focusing on taking care of customers and the growth of the business. He has built the business by being fair, honest, and really caring about the customers and employees. That is a solid way to move into the next 45 years.”
