The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy located at Quinpool Road and Oxford Street in Halifax, NS is independently owned by Anastasia Hanias.

Anastasia was educated in Boston at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy. She believes in taking a holistic approach to patient care. She carries a wide range of Vitamins and Nutritional and Homeopathic supplements.

She offers personal service to her customers, and is available for private one-on-one consultations to discuss the individual concerns and needs of her patients.

Her patients regularly express their gratitude for the patience and generosity she bestows upon them.

In addition to providing traditional pharmaceutical services, Anastasia is also one of the few pharmacists in Halifax who provides a full range of compounding services.

She has completed a course on the Science of Pharmaceutical Compounding at the University of Florida College Pharmacy. This enables her to create customized medications to meet the particular needs of her patients.

Patient Reviews:

“I didn’t just find a pharmacist, but a friendly knowledgeable young woman more than willing to accommodate my needs with expertise and efficiency” – MB.


I have always been pro-active with regard to the management of my health. Long disabled with multiple chemical sensitivities as well as being afflicted with (bi-polar) disorder has made it tremendously more complicated.

A year ago, on the advice of my best friend, I walked into the calm of The Medicine Shoppe and was greeted by Anastasia. Immediately I was struck by this woman’s intent focus and generosity of spirit. It was clear to me then that we would be able to work together to meet my needs and achieve my goals.

Many days I come in with rush orders and last minute changes. When one thing didn’t work we tried another till we got it right. Sometimes a doctor would have to be consulted. And I am also aware that there were days that must have stretched out long into the night behind the counter working on some challenge or another while family life went on without her.

Additionally and unexpectedly we have also forged a wonderful relationship of which I am reminded every time I walk into the calm of The Medicine Shoppe to be greeted by Anastasia and her remarkable assistant Sharon.”JT.
