New Pharmacist Robert Taylor

We wanted to take a minute to introduce you to, Robert Taylor, the newest addition to the Lehan’s team of pharmacists! Starting in the spring of 2012, Robert is now the pharmacy manager at Lehan Drugs @ The Dekalb Clinic.  He is very excited about working in independent pharmacy again,  and Robert looks forward to continuing the level of patient care that patients have come to expect from Lehan Drugs.  Robert replaced Jon Lehan who recently opened his own compounding pharmacy in Rockford – Rock Valley Compounding Pharmacy.

Robert graduated at the top of his pharmacy class from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in 2005. Robert grew up on a farm near Enid, OK and is no stranger to independent pharmacy practice. He worked throughout his college years for two different locally owned pharmacies and enjoyed an emphasis on compounding even then. The summer before his last year of pharmacy school, Robert, by chance, chose a pharmacy internship program in Milwaukee, WI. There he met his future wife Sarah (Haeseker) who was also in pharmacy school but at Drake University in Des Moines. After marrying in Iowa and spending a few years in his native Oklahoma, Robert and Sarah started a family in 2009 with the birth of their son George, moving back to Sarah’s hometown of De Kalb the following spring. Sarah had of course known of the Lehans growing up just down the street from their fourth street location and also by making their pharmacy one of her experiential rotations while in pharmacy school. Soon after moving back to De Kalb, Sarah started working part time at the Lehan’s clinic pharmacy but also kept her full time job raising George. Now that Robert has joined her and the Lehan’s family, they are very excited to be working together and are looking forward to getting to know all the customers that have supported Lehans over the past sixty-five years.

Being a dutiful husband, Robert has happily joined Sarah in rooting for the Chicago Bears on Sundays, but he will always be an OU Sooner fan first, attending their football games whenever they play in the Midwest. And while, Robert was at the top of his class in college, Sarah is at the top of their pharmacy household, she had better grades than him.

We are ecstatic to have Robert join our healthcare team!
