Owners, Pharmacists

Founded by brothers Carey & Chris Vaughan in Greensboro, GA, Lake Country Pharmacy & Compounding Center has been serving the communities of Greensboro, Eatonton, Madison, Milledgeville, Lake Oconee, and Lake Sinclair since 2013. They have also been providing compounding services in the Lake Area since 2008. Collectively their pharmacy staff has over 25 years of experience, so their family can take care of your family.

Both Carey and Chris graduated from the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy, 2005 and 2007 respectively, with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. The brothers have always been inclined and driven to independent pharmacy and more specifically compounding.

Lake Country Pharmacy & Compounding Center has two separate, convenient pharmacy locations:

Lake Country Pharmacy in Harmony Medical Center can handle all your retail prescription, over the counter, and immunization needs.  We carry an assortment of products and supplements that are difficult to find anywhere in the Lake Oconee area, and purchasable durable medical equipment, such as walkers, raised toilet seats, and shower chairs.  We accept most major insurance plans including Medicare D and Medicaid.  We will also have a DRIVE-THRU window for your drop-off and pick up convenience.

Lake Country Compounding will remain at our current location, off Linger Longer Road, and provide all your compounded and specialty medication needs.  We can help with all of your hard to treat conditions that can’t be treated with ordinary prescription medications.  We specialize in compounding for bio-identical hormone replacement, topical pain relief, male and female sexual health, as well as, many other conditions.  Even if you have allergies or sensitivities to different dyes or preservatives, we can help by compounding your medication with no dyes or preservatives.  Compounds can help everyone in some way…adults, children, and even our four-legged friends.

Brian E Prell

Brian E Prell

Owner / Physical Therapist

The Owner of Rehabilitation and Performance Center. Mr. Prell is nationally known for his work in physical therapy including an emphasis in the treatment of vestibular and non-vestibular disorders.

A few years ago, a journalist was interviewing Mr. Prell about his practice. During the interview she asked a common question but his answer surprised her. She asked him, “Why are you passionate about Physical Therapy?” His response? “I am not passionate about Physical Therapy…I’m passionate about the way WE do Physical Therapy.”

While he was in PT school a professor shared with the class how to develop the model for an ideal practice. This model was very patient centric and focused on evidence based medicine, providing one-on-one care, engaging with patients, and providing an environment which allows staff to develop relationships with the people in the communities in which we practice. Then, on graduation, he said if we ever found this type of practice we needed to join it and grow there, because they are few and far between. He never forgot that message.

After practicing for a few years with a national organization, an opportunity was made available for Mr. Prell to possibly move into the area of private practice. His vision for the practice would be to create that very practice his professor spoke of in PT school. Despite the detractors who told him it couldn’t be done. Despite being told that the business model would never be sustainable over time.

Despite all that, he opened Rehabilitation and Performance Center in March 2009 in Greensboro, GA at Lake Oconee in a 1700 sq. ft. space. Since then, he has expanded to a 3200 sq. ft. space and has added an aquatics therapy pool. Also during that time, in 2013 he added a second office at 316 Professional Quarters in Watkinsville, GA where his practice continued to grow and provide individual care to the residents of the community and surrounding areas. Things are good…great actually.

How does he do it? Simple…by being obsessed with providing patients with an unbelievable experience through personal engagement and individual care. The Rehabilitation and Performance Center’s therapists aren’t treating 16+ patients per day and never will. It’s not their model. Their therapists treat 11-12 patients per day…intentionally. Patients are seen by licensed credentialed therapists EVERY visit.
