My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe that the key to optimal health is to have an effective partnership between the doctor and patient. To be successful, this relationship requires time for a complete understanding of each individual patient and an emphasis on wellness and prevention when necessary. Working with each patient and taking the time during our annual wellness visit, I will help develop a personalized lifestyle plan that meets their intended health goals.

In 1995, I returned to my home in the Sandhills of North Carolina to serve the people that I grew up with. I have participated in many facets of their care, attending to them in the hospital and office and even making visits for care in their home. I have interests in cardiovascular disease prevention and management of diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis and thyroid diseases.

I have an active affiliation with FirstHealth-Moore Regional Hospital and I believe it is very important to make hospital visits to provide continuity of care for my patients. In 2004, I was voted by the staff to be their first “Physician of the Year”, as it reflected my passion for excellence in working with others for the betterment of my patients. My primary practice is commonly compared to a concierge practice; however, it will be focused on wellness, prevention of illness and personalized care.

I am looking forward to our partnership for a healthier YOU!

from Steve in NC April 1, 2017 for Walter S. Morris III, MD, FACP

I have had to deal with some new health issues since joining the program, and having virtual 24/7 access to Dr. Morris has been very comforting and beneficial to me. I strongly recommend the MDVIP program to anyone.

from Dorothy in NC March 28, 2017 for Walter S. Morris III, MD, FACP

Dr. Morris has been our physician for over 20 years since he first started practicing medicine in the Pinehurst Medical Group. He has taken excellent care of my husband and myself through many situations, some emergency and some very difficult times. He is a wonderful and caring doctor.

from Kenneth February 23, 2017 for Walter S. Morris III, MD, FACP

Dr. Morris is fantastic!! He is extremely thorough and very knowledgeable. He always spends sufficient time with me, answers all my questions and never makes me feel rushed. I can always reach a live person when I call his office. Scheduling an appointment has never been more than a day from when I call.
I am extremely happy with his service and office. I highly recommend Dr. Morris.
