Rob Vaughn
Bluffton Pharmacy

Rob Vaughn answered the call to become a pharmacist a little later in life than most. Originally an advertising executive working with a multi-national agency, he had the opportunity to work with some consultant pharmacists with pharmaceutical clients such as Glaxo Smith Kline and Bristol Meyers Squibb. This sparked an interest that would take him down a long and winding road to switch gears and become a pharmacist.

While working towards his doctorate degree in pharmacy, Vaughn found a passion in helping others in local communities with questions about their health and medications. This passion led him to realize the importance of community pharmacies and being a source of information and understanding to the community’s health needs.

After a short time working with other corporate pharmacies, he learned that the best way to positively impact the community was through local independent pharmacies. This way, corporate regulation doesn’t stand in the way of the ability to communicate with people and offer honest answers to health concerns and to drive the cost down for many who do not have insurance.

Vaughn decided to look for opportunities to engage independent pharmacies and took a position with longstanding and trusted Bluffton Pharmacy, offering full prescription and compounding services for customers and pets alike. Under the supervision of local pharmacist Jim Sauter, he learned the local community and how to best support their needs. After months of discussion and training, Sauter decided it was time to pursue other things and handed the keys to Vaughn, who promised to keep Bluffton Pharmacy the local staple it has always been.

Vaughn lives in Bluffton with his wife and three children and is happy to serve Bluffton and the surrounding area with any and all pharmacy needs.
