My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am a family physician and primary care physician who has practiced in the Rocky Mount, North Carolina, area my entire medical career. I started the faith-based Rocky Mount Family Medicine Center in 1983 and continue to stay involved in our wonderful community. I provide personalized healthcare using advanced tools and testing combined with a model that provides more time for us to connect and discuss your health concerns. My goal is to put the caring aspect back into a visit to the doctor!

My MDVP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in other concierge medical practices. We are pleased to provide a same-day or next-day appointments for more urgent care needs with minimal wait time. And you can expect to see me, your personal doctor, not an extended-care provider.

From the moment you enter our practice, you can sense a difference. You can see pleasant surroundings and hear thoughtful, meditative music. My staff is attentive and works to help make your visit more personalized. Often, my patients and I end up laughing in the exam room because, while medical care is serious, I believe in finding enjoyment in our lives and things around us. I hope you consider becoming part of our family here at our practice!

I pride myself on combining approaches that involve both traditional and prescription-based care but also on lifestyle approaches and holistic health alternatives. I support an evidence-based approach, influenced by my years of experience teaching medical students in an academic setting. I also find comfort in my faith-based approach to life.

from Vivian in NC July 15, 2022 for Richard G. Michal, MD

I want to first thank Dr. Natalie Doyle who referred me to Dr. Richard Michal in Rocky Mount. I was very nervous about getting to know a new Dr. after my former Dr. and her family decided to move to for a new adventure. Dr. Michal has made it so easy for this transition as he understood from the start how difficult it can be to change and put your trust in a new person. His Staff has been… See more
