Stephen Potts, PharmD.
My name is Stephen Potts. I have recently moved back to Fairfield, where I was born and raised. My dad, Ed, opened The Medicine Shoppe a month before I was born. Therefore, I tell people I was literally raised in a pharmacy. My passion for to become a pharmacist was developed at a very young age watching my dad live and develop his passion. I graduated with my Doctor of Pharmacy from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Pharmacy in 2013. I spent the first part of my career as a Clinical Pharmacist in the hospital and Long Term Care settings. However, I knew being a Community Pharmacist was where I wanted to be. I was blessed to be offered the opportunity to join my father at Fairfield’s only independently owned pharmacy. I look forward to being a part of the community of Fairfield.
Most importantly, I married my beautiful high school sweetheart, Tiffany. I can honestly say I would not be where I am today without her love and support throughout the years. Together we have 4 amazing boys, Max, Jude, Linc, and Hux. We love to be outdoors, playing all sports and spending time together as a family. One additional thing my dad and I have in common, besides being a pharmacist, is that we are die hard Chicago Bears fans!
