Thirteen physicians at Pardee UNC Health Care were named to Business NC magazine's Top Doctors list for 2021.

“It’s encouraging to know that so many of our physicians are highly regarded by their peers,” said Dr. Greg McCarty, Chief Medical Officer, Pardee UNC Health Care. “This recognition is a great privilege, and our community is fortunate to have these wonderful doctors who are committed to improving the lives of the people we serve.”

The Top Doctors nomination is a project in which doctors in the state vote for their colleagues in various specialties who exemplify excellence in their service areas. The list is intended to allow the public to see and celebrate the physicians who were selected. It also gives those seeking medical services a place to find trustworthy and highly regarded providers in their community.
