The Power of Touch

Physical, Emotional and Spiritual

Heart Health

We’re proud to be part of the “Heart Health Now!” initiative led by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to help primary care practices improve the heart health of millions of Americans. Listen in at 7:00 a.m. Friday mornings throughout the summer.


Summer weeds such as ragweed, air pollution, molds, bees, wasps, yellow jackets, hornets, fire ants, and other insects that sting, can all cause allergic reactions. If over the counter antihistamines are not helping your allergies, call our office to schedule a visit.

Arthritis Care

If non-prescription strength pain relievers are no longer managing your joint pain, it may be time to explore other options. These include prescription pain relievers or prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), immunosuppressants, physical therapy, and possibly surgery. Call our office to schedule an appointment.

Our Commitment

No one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay.
A discounted/sliding fee schedule is available based on family size and income.

Telehealth Services

With Telehealth Visits, it’s easy to get urgent care or other appointments through our virtual telehealth services. If you live in the Raeford area, you can connect remotely through online consultation or video call—right from home. It’s a convenient option for those who prefer not to travel.

All you need is your phone, tablet, laptop or computer. When you use one of our virtual services, you can consult with a doctor online or meet face-to-face through a video call. You will be able to have your symptoms checked and get next steps—including a prescription, if needed.
