Not everyone looks forward to a trip to the pharmacy. Most of the time when I find myself in the line to pick up all manner of antibiotics, I am at the wrong end of the sick stick and can’t wait to make it back home to the warmth of my couch. But not all trips need to be so dire; a trip to the pharmacy can be a relaxing experience, one that leaves you feeling more rejuvenated than when you walked in.
Welcome to Hill Country Apothecary. Stepping into the the space, you leave behind all past notions of what a compounding pharmacy is as you speak one on one with your pharmacist about all of your health needs.
Owners Jana Downing and Adam Metcalf, both Austin pharmacists themselves, seek to provide the Lake Travis and Hill Country areas with a unique wellness experience like no other. A one-stop shop that focuses on preventative health, and personalized wellness plans in a relaxing atmosphere.
The inspiration behind the launch of Lake Travis’ newest compounding pharmacies struck when Downing and Metcalf met while still in school. It was there that their entrepreneurial spirit and mission for a more person-centered pharmacy experience came together to launch Hill Country Apothecary. Their fathers were also pharmacists—giving them a generational understanding to what is important in the client-pharmacist relationship and how vital this is to serve the community.
Opening their doors to Lake Travis residents officially on January 21 this year, the spacious location boasts an on-site compounding pharmacy, shelves of the newest nutraceuticals on the market and even a cold-pressed juice and smoothie bar, Skinny Limits.
The entire venture feels more like a trip to the spa than an errand to pick up medicine. The Apothecary even offers free wifi, so you can grab a nourishing kale smoothie and surf the web while you wait.
