Harry Xidias, an owner of City View Pharmacy, will continue on as Supervising Pharmacist and City View Pharmacy’s current employees will become AHF Pharmacy staff.
Established in 2006 by Harry Xidias, RPh and his business partner and wife Angie Xidias, City View Pharmacy, 23-07 Astoria Boulevard, will keep its name and current six-day operating schedule.

“Harry and Angie Xidias and AHF are extremely happy to announce that City View Pharmacy is joining the AHF Pharmacy family,” said AHF Chief Pharmacy Officer Scott Carruthers. “Harry will remain as the pharmacy’s manager to ensure that the same great services City View Pharmacy has provided for the past 11 years will continue. AHF looks forward to working with City View to empower the pharmacy to expand its services in the New York region and benefit even more patients in the years to come.”
Harry Xidias, said, “It has always been City View Pharmacy’s mission to provide highest quality, compassionate care to our patients and find ways to give back to the community. This new partnership with AHF is exciting for us because our missions are so closely aligned. Expanding our services through AHF will be a new way to give back and a win-win for all those we serve.”
