Our Pharmacy

About Us

San Joaquin Drug has served Planada and the surrounding communities since 2000, providing a more caring and convenient pharmacy experience to better manage your health.

As independent pharmacists, we take the time to deliver a higher level of personal attention, unexpected convenience and trusted advice that you might not find in the larger chains. With each visit, you’ll discover award winning quality service from a pharmacist who knows you by your name—not just by your medication.

Katie Bass, PharmD. and her Dad, Mike Bass, PharmD., are ready to serve your medication needs and address your concerns. Many of our staff have stayed with our family business since we first opened. Our staff is bilingual, fast, and friendly.


San Joaquin Drug is family owned and community engaged. We support our local communities. We offer and Annual Free Health Fair in collaboration with Binational Health Week. We deliver free to patients in Merced, Planada, Le Grand, and Cathey's Valley. We strive for fast, friendly, bilingual service to our patients. Our Pharmacists are trained health educators who want to discuss your medications with you. No waiting in lines at San Joaquin Drug. Quality. Service. Delivered.
