Hi, my name is Angela Coggins. I am the pharmacy manager of our Roanoke Rapids location and have worked with Drugco Pharmacy since 1991. I live in Roanoke Rapids with my husband, Stacy and my two sons, Braxton and Ayden. I graduated from Roanoke Rapids High School in 1993 and the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy in December of 1997.

I have been pharmacy manager since April 2009.

Our pharmacists offer a broad range of services including blood pressure checks, immunizations, medication reviews, and medication counseling. I can speak for the entire pharmacy staff when I say the great customer service has always been and will continue to be our number one priority. Come by and see us at Drugco…you’ll be glad you did.
