About Copper Bend Pharmacy

Did you ever go to a large chain pharmacy? You drop off your prescriptions at a window, go shop for an hour, and come back to pay someone at a window who probably will not even be employed there when you return next time. Do you feel like volume is more important to them than the individual? Does this sound familiar? Knowing that medication is very important to many people, and, realizing that very few people understand their medications and effects, Stephen Clement opened Copper Bend Pharmacy in 1984 and has been proudly serving the Belleville area community since.

Copper Bend Pharmacy has been a success for 25 years because we have never forgotten the reason it was opened, to serve the people with a caring attitude. We want your experience to feel as safe and comfortable as being in your own home. We offer personal and private counseling on every prescription and we can answer questions in terms you can understand. We also provide blood sugar and blood pressure readings, often free of charge to our customers. Seven day pill reminder service for elderly, or special case patients, and twenty four hour emergency service, are just some of the other features we provide free of charge.

Stephen Clement graduated from the St. Louis College of Pharmacy in 1974 with one goal as a pharmacist, to help people. Utilizing his knowledge and passion for his profession he began his career. Through the years, Stephen has received numerous awards from the community and other organizations, and, has served as the leader of many pharmacist groups on the local, state, and national level. For the past several years he has also been giving back to the college that provided his education by teaching a new generation of pharmacists. Recently, Stephen was voted the number one pharmacist, in the Belleville community, by the readers of the Belleville News Democrat. This was only the second time this award was given and Stephen has received the award both times. Stephen has also been awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the St. Louis College of Pharmacy Alumni Association, and the ‘One-to-One Patient Counseling Recognition Award’ presented by the APhA Pharmacy Today Magazine. This award was one of only five presented in the United States.

In order to uphold the high level of service his customers have come to expect Stephen has surrounded himself with the best staff available. Having a combined average of 15 years experience in the pharmacy business his staff is one of the best. The pharmacy would not be as successful as it is without their support day in and day out. Sandy is one of the best technicians available, just ask any of the customers who come in.
