Five Dock Pharmacy has been a pillar of the local community since 2000. Mathew, Richard, Alison, Nina, and the team aim to deliver the best health outcomes to their patients. They support community events and fundraisers and consistently provide exceptional service to their patients.
Their core value of providing up to date and extensive knowledge of medication has not deviated whilst their range of services has increased over time.
Owner Mathew Massasso has filled the pharmacy with professional and courteous staff who provide personalised customer service. Most staff members are fluent in Italian, which is advantageous in an area with such a large Italian population as Five Dock. Mathew further caters to this Italian community by stocking unique Italian products such as the classic Felce Azzurra talc power and hand soaps and the Marvis toothpaste, famous for their unusual flavours.
Their services extend beyond the pharmacy walls because they also offer free home delivery of medication for the less mobile and time-poor.
Owning a pharmacy runs in the family with Mathew’s father and father-in-law, both previously owning pharmacies. Many of Mathews customers are now customers of Five Dock Pharmacy.
Mathew is also very community-focused. He supports community festivals and fundraisers such as school fetes and Associazione Isole Eolie Confraternita’ San Bartolomeo Apostolo. Most significantly would be Mathew’s involvement in the biannual fund-raising event for Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia with Dine & Dance for a Cure evening.

What Our Customers Say About Us
Yesterday I took my 4 year old daughter in to get some vaccines and she was absolutely hysterical because she new what was coming. I have never seen her so upset and I was close to losing it myself. While we waited Matt not only managed to calm her down but got her smiling and laughing within minutes. It was an amazing thing to see and I could not have been more grateful!
Awesome costumer service! The staff is bilingual. Seating available. Right next door to a cafe and a bank. Bus stop at the front. Alternatively, you can drive and park at the front, under Coles or at the car park across the street, behind the NAB.
Great pharmacy with individualised customer service. They remember my prescription every time.
