Novant Health Family Medicine Pine Forest

At Novant Health Family Medicine Pine Forest, lab services, ultrasound tests and X-ray services are available on site, bringing more of the services you need to one location.

Osteopathic care is available, for a holistic approach to maintaining good health. Osteopathic medicine supports the body’s ability to heal itself, using natural and low-impact treatments whenever possible. Rather than treating specific symptoms, doctors of osteopathic medicine help you keep all of your systems in harmony.

Our doctors are certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, a private, not-for-profit organization that assesses and works to improve healthcare. Most importantly, our healthcare professionals understand the importance of getting to know you as a person and caring for you the same way — as an individual.

Formerly known as Novant Health Oceanside Family Medicine Southport, our clinic now operates in modern offices within the Pine Forest Plantation community, off Southport-Supply Road in Brunswick County, North Carolina. The location is convenient to Southport, Oak Island, Saint James, Bolivia, Caswell Beach and Boiling Spring Lakes.
