Dr. Hedrick's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hedrick "I grew up Raleigh and we moved to the country when I was 10 years old. After high school I went to Wake Forest College, where I was manager of our championship basketball team and junior class president. After college I was accepted to Bowman Gray School of Medicine and graduated in 1957. I interned at Grady Memorial Hospital in Internal Medicine, the emergency room and Ob-Gyn. I did psychiatry for almost a year at State Hospital and then joined the Army and spent two years in France where I learned to speak French. I went back to Grady for six months of Pediatrics and came back to Raleigh where I was the first E.R. physician at Wake Med. I opened my family practice on July 2, 1962 and have been in practice ever since. I enjoy seeing patients and have no intention of retiring any time soon."

in Raleigh, NC |
Dr. Hedrick's experience with all aspects of medicine far exceed most health care providers. He was the first and only Doctor able to help me with my mental health issues. He is very knowledgeable and listens to everything you say.

I have seen him for over25yrs. and I like the way he listens to you and acts like he really cares for your well being. He hit the nail on the head when I went and said this upper part of stomach hurts so he felt it and said go directly to hospital. I did and they found gall stones were about to block my pancris and I would had died. He put me on medications that stopped my depression and helped be deal with my pain and depression. The only time he called it wrong my ankle was broke not a sprain.
