Christopher Ferris, MD, PhD

Dr. Ferris Says:

“The patient-doctor relationship is very important to me. I enjoy personal encounters with my patients and families. Those relationships are key to leading successful, jointly developed plans to improve symptoms and long-term health.

Medicine is not only a part of my life, but also my wife’s who works as a nurse. We have three children. We have a daughter at Myers Park High School, another daughter at UNC-Chapel Hill and a son at the University of Georgia. Outside of the office, I love golf and cheering on the Charlotte Hornets.”
