Al Roberts, RPH

Co-Owner & Pharmacist-In-Charge

I was born in Harrisonburg Virginia in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Except for a seven year stretch in the 1960’s, my entire life has been spent in the great Commonwealth of Virginia. I have a younger brother and sister. I graduated from Halifax County High, attended the University of Richmond for 2 years, and graduated from the Medical College of Virginia in 1977 with a BS in Pharmacy. I came to Warrenton after graduation and worked at Rhodes Drug Store until it closed at the end of 2005. While working at Rhodes I met Sharon Godfrey who also worked there and we were married in 1979. During this time I also worked on my day off for Mr. Wilbur Heflin and the Remington Drug Company. Most people feel blessed to have one great job but I have been fortunate enough to have two such opportunities with Rhodes and Remington Drug. In 2006 I came to Remington Drug full time. I am a member of two national pharmacy organization, two state pharmacy organizations, I am a supporter of the Fauquier Free Clinic, and a speaker to Cardiac Rehab patients at Fauquier Health Systems Wellness Center. I am also certified to give immunizations such as flu, shingles, and pneumonia. I enjoy working in the yard, football, and bowling. I believe my greatest opportunities to help and educate patients is in a community pharmacy like Remington Drug It is truly a pleasure and a privilege to contribute to the healthcare program of all our patients.
