Family Medicine and Primary Care

Being healthy is a lot more than finding a doctor when you or a family member gets sick, is injured or suffers some other health crisis. It’s also about having a primary, personal doctor who knows you and sees you at least a few times a year. That relationship is key to managing your health over the long haul and more effective care when something just doesn’t “feel right.”

Family medicine and primary care providers treat your whole family – from birth throughout all of life. Vidant Health has more than 400 providers in more than 70 offices. They are part of Vidant Medical Group and The Outer Banks Medical group, two reputable and well-established multi-specialty physician groups that provide superior care for the health and wellness of eastern North Carolina’s residents. So no matter where you live in the region, you’ll find the care you need close to home.
