Despite an environment where independent pharmacies were being swallowed up by the larger chains, Dom and Jeff defied the odds and opened Tuminaro Pharmacy in Spring, 2004. Particularly in a time when doctors have less time to consult and there is more (conflicting!) information from television commercials and the media, Dom and Jeff had faith that patients would seek out the personalized service their independent pharmacy provides. They are thankful for 12 great years in business and looking forward to many more!

Dominick graduated from Columbia University and is a second-generation pharmacist. He worked his way up from staff pharmacist at Hopewell Pharmacy to part owner. After selling the independent pharmacy and working as a chain pharmacist, Dom is relieved to be back as an owner of Tuminaro Pharmacy. Dom is a devoted husband, lives in Hopewell with his wife Ginny, father of 4, grandfather of 8, and an East Fishkill Rotarian for almost four decades. Anyone who knows Dom also knows he is an avid Yankee fan.
Jeffrey Papo RPh (Co-Owner)
Jeff met Dominick in 1995 when he did a summer internship at Hopewell Pharmacy while completing his pharmacy degree at Albany College of Pharmacy. After serving as district pharmacy supervisor for one of the large chains, Jeff gained confidence that together with the right partner, he could bring a viable neighborhood pharmacy back to Hopewell Junction. His goal was to make the pharmacy working environment similar to what his experience was at the Hopewell Pharmacy. He lives in Beekman with his wife, also a lifelong Dutchess County resident.
