Dr. Shawn Sams, PharmDAdvisor
Professional / Organizational Background
I am currently a member of NCPA. I am also on the advisory board for Digital Pharmacist. I am a preceptor of pharmacy students at The University of Texas at Tyler.
Business Skillset / Unique Traits
I am friendly, personable and energetic. I love conversing with my patients and finding the best possible medication plan that meets each of their needs. Customer service is top priority for me. I work diligently to manage Louis Morgan’s finances. I have exceptional communication skills. I am one of the managers and delegate many responsibilities daily. I believe networking is crucial for any business, but is the only way for independent pharmacies to remain competitive against large chains.
Personal / Family Background
I received a bachelor of science in microbiology from Texas A&M University in 2002 and my Doctor of Pharmacy from The University of Texas in 2006. I have worked in a pharmacy since I was 16 years old, working my way up from clerk, to technician, to pharmacist. I was a pharmacist for CVS for 3 years years, before accepting a position at Louis Morgan Drugs #4 in November 2009. I became an owner of the pharmacy in April 2014. I am married and have three daughters ages 2, 4 and 8. We have two dogs and one cat.
Hobbies / Interests
I enjoy watching the Texas Rangers play baseball. I also like watching football and playing golf. I take guitar lessons every week. Each summer, I vacation with my family on the gulf coast of northern Florida. I also enjoy visiting theme parks, like Six Flags Over Texas, where I ride roller coasters and water slides with my family.
