Patricia A. North, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

An internist’s knowledge, experience, insight and technical ability all come together when evaluating and treating patients. My goal is to help my patients achieve their optimal health through wellness and prevention. I believe the key to this is getting to know all of my patients personally and nurturing close doctor-patient relationships.

I am a board-certified internal medicine physician with an added certificate in geriatric medicine. In addition to primary care, I have special interests in cardiovascular health, lipid management, hypertension management and osteoporosis. I also try to “walk the talk” by leading an active lifestyle which includes regular exercise and a healthy diet.

I have privileges at Hilton Head Hospital and am one of the few female primary care physicians in Hilton Head, Bluffton and Okatie who offers this personalized healthcare approach similar to concierge medicine. As a private doctor, it's very satisfying to see that my patients are benefiting greatly from the highly individualized care and attention provided in my private practice.
