Chillicothe Family Pharmacy was born out of the idea that the healthcare and quality of life for the residents of Chillicothe, MO and the surrounding communities could be improved through the increased use of the knowledge and skills of a pharmacist.

Since graduating from pharmacy school over 15 years ago, pharmacist/owner, Scott Cady, Pharm.D., has had a passion to serve his community by passing along healthcare information in a way both patients and healthcare professionals can understand. With this understanding, Dr. Cady then helps his patients integrate this knowledge into their everyday lives, thus improving their quality of life.
