Shallotte, N.C., May 26, 2014 – Kevin Price, D.O., who most recently worked as a hospital-based physician at Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center, will join Novant Health Oceanside Family Medicine and Convenient Care in Shallotte effective June 2.
Dr. Price, who is board certified in internal medicine, moved to North Carolina in 2007 from Newport, R.I. to open Cascade Primary Care in Leland, N.C. After three years, it was with mixed emotions that he transitioned to serve as a hospitalist at Brunswick Medical Center and gain valuable experience in hospital medicine.
“While I have enjoyed working at the hospital, I am looking forward to returning to a clinic in the community where I can build long-term relationships with patients and families,” said Dr. Price. “Oceanside Family Medicine & Convenient Care is a well-established practice with an excellent reputation, and I am pleased to be working alongside these physicians and providers.”
Dr. Price received his medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia, Penn., and he completed his residency in internal medicine at the Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island, which is affiliated with Brown University in Providence, R.I. He is also fluent in Spanish.
At Novant Health Oceanside Family Medicine and Convenient Care, Dr. Price will focus his practice on patients ages 18 and up. Services include preventive healthcare; physical exams, including school, sports and employment physicals; women’s health visits; immunizations; and same-day sick appointments.
