Patients have access to a broad range of health care services in one convenient location by trusted professionals who can work collaboratively when appropriate. Patients benefit from having a range of treatment options for pain, headaches and other chronic conditions with trusted doctor referrals.  Providers at the Center appreciate being in close proximity to other specialists with whom they can confer on the patient’s behalf when appropriate.

Chapel Hill Doctors Healthcare Center was founded with a commitment to evidence-based medicine with a focus on conventional, preventive and integrative medicine. Conventional medicine uses clinically proven medicines and medical technologies. Preventive medicine emphasizes the impact that nutrition, lifestyle, and exercise have on an individual’s health. Integrative medicine offers other modalities such as acupuncture and mind/body therapies that can complement conventional medical care. Together, conventional, preventive, and integrative medicine comprise a comprehensive approach to one’s healthcare needs.  Chapel Hill Doctors has brought together healthcare professionals who collectively offer all of these components of good health care in one convenient multidisciplinary setting.

They set out to create a medical Center where private practice doctors and healthcare providers from different specialties could work in close proximity to offer patients a broad range of healthcare treatment options in a collaborative, convenient and customer-focused setting. The Center started full operations in April 2007.
