Looking For Primary Care Doctor

Looking For Primary Care Doctor

I have recently moved to the Wingate/Monroe, NC area and I need to find a primary care doctor who has experience with Lupus and other autoimmune disorders who is not a pill pusher.

I don't take prescription meds to manage my Lupus, just all natural supplements, and I'm looking for someone who would support this method of treatment.

So if anyone has a doctor that works well with them and fits my criteria, please let me know.

Thanks.
