 Dr. Vaughan returned to Auburn in September 2013 to reunite with his parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and to start his practice. Active in his church, Dr. Gawayne Vaughan also enjoys the outdoors and bike riding with his wife, Shelley.

 He is enjoying practicing family medicine with his uncle, Dr. Mark Vaughan, and being able to follow patients on a long term basis. He especially likes working with families and being able to provide health and wellness therapies to all the generations in each family—from the children and parents to grandparents and great grandparents.
