About Us

Our Mission

Our mission at Med First Primary & Urgent Care is one that is a shared philosophy with all of our providers, medical staff, and administration. That mission is simple… EXCEED our patients’ expectations. This philosophy is instilled within our practice on every level starting with patient care first. We strive to maintain an ongoing dedication to ensuring that our patients receive the highest quality of comprehensive healthcare in both a sick patient environment as well as our wellness and preventative-based Family Practice setting.

It is our pledge to ensure that all of our patients take comfort in calling Med First their Medical home, by providing additional services like sports physicals and urgent care facilities. Check out our locations page to find our clinics in North Carolina & South Carolina locations near you!
