About

Bio

Family physician for 30+ years in a small North Carolina town who aims to provide the best medical care that can be found anywhere....compassionate care......patient-centric care... We tell our staff that when a patient calls to be seen, our first question to them should be "how quickly can you get here". We try to be available for our patients...TRULY available...24/7. I feel that as their family doc, it is my job to stay on top of their care, whether in my office , or in a consultants office, or the hospital. We stay in close contact with our patients as we help them through the current day medical maze. My staff is just as dedicated, and truly the best. They care. I think that is why we have hundreds of patients that travel several hours to come see us.
