Erik Cornett, R.Ph.
Owner and Pharmacist-in-Charge

Erik Cornett, received his Bachelor’s of Science from St. Louis College of Pharmacy in 1997, the same year he began compounding.  After spending some time in the independent and retail industry Erik saw an opportunity in the health care industry that wasn’t available in southern Illinois.  He opened southern Illinois’ first compounding-only pharmacy, NaturalMed Apothecary, in April of 2007.  In 2017 he changed the name of NaturalMed Apothecary to Core Pharmacy and also moved back to Marion where retail pharmacy was also added to provide customers with a full service pharmacy.  Originally from DuQuoin, he now resides in Marion with his wife Clare and two daughters.
