Our focus at Insight Family Health Center is wellness!

Good Health is determined by quality of living as well as duration of life.  We know that we must survive, but we must also be able to enjoy living.  At Insight Family Health Center, our goals include preventing disease and accelerated aging, while improving the quality of life.  This is done through education and therapy that is aimed at reducing stress, promoting optimal nutrition and exercise, and correcting hormonal imbalance.

The health care that is provided at Insight Family Health Centeris provided by two family nurse practitioners,Tabetha L. Smith, RN, MSN, FNP-C, and Katherine S. Mann, RN, MSN, FNP-C.These practitioners are uniquely qualified to meet the practice goals.

In NC, a FNP is allowed to own their own practice of medicine. and practice without a physician on site.According to state law, FNP's are required to have a supervising physician. The supervising physician forInsight Family Health Centeris Dr. William Rawls, Jr. of Soundside Health Care in Morehead City, NC. Dr. Rawlsis board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and has a certification from The American Board of Holistic Medicine.His practice has the same focus and goals as this practice. The law requires that Dr. Rawls be available to our FNPsby phone or internet and that they must meet every 6 months. They also have in place set protocols for practice and a formal agreement between them as to what tasks, procedures and functions they can perform as FNPs.

The FNP's do not have hospital privileges, and they do not take care of patients in the hospital.They have an agreement with Coastal Hospitalists to provide medical care for patients in the hospital.Coastal Hospitalists are a group of physicians who have special training in providing medical care in a hospital setting. These physicians will only care for you in the hospital and will keep our office informed of your progress.
