About Us

Hello, my name is James Mitchell and I am the owner of Southeast Community Pharmacy. We are an apothecary-type pharmacy that deals only in medicine and medical-related products. We’re here to serve is our motto and we believe and practice it daily.

I am a 1980 graduate of Mercer University Southern School of Pharmacy, Atlanta, GA. My father and his father were born and raised in Hampton, VA so I have deep roots here. I moved here in 1960 and attended Armstrong Elementary, Parkview Elementary, Jeff Davis Junior High, Hampton High, and graduated Bethel High School in 1970.

I have four children, the eldest of which is a practicing pharmacist and one who is an executive chef at a local five-star restaurant, and also six grandchildren ages 7 to 17. We all live in Newport News and get to see one another all the time.

I think that pharmacy is the best profession and thank the Lord that He has allowed me to practice for more than 40 years! I am very happy to be able to serve the citizens of southeast Newport News for their prescription and medical supply needs.

Please see our services section to see what we have to offer.
