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."
