Asbury has a 40 year history in OKC, truly making it a local grown business. First licensed as Gillium Pharmacy at 63rd and May in OKC, it continued to operate with Mike Asbury at the helm beginning in 1985. Mike loved to compound and collaborate with local physicians for individualized patient care. He was the creative mind behind the 3 leaf logo of Asbury as he drew it on many notes throughout the years. Mike was such a strong influence that not only his children, but also other ‘kids’ who worked in the store through the years continued their love of medicine and helping people.
Mike’s wife, Donnie, became sole owner of Gillium Pharmacy and changed the name to Asbury Pharmacy upon his passing in lasting tribute. She continued to nurture Asbury pharmacy with the love of a school teacher. She loved her patients and her employees, making a lasting mark on the community and succeeding in the pharmacy business with her own special touch.
The third generation of Asbury Pharmacy is just beginning. With Donnie’s retirement, Laura and Richard will continue to grow the rich tradition so carefully sown by Mike and Donnie, providing a personalized brand of patient care and collaborative practice with physicians.
