About the Practice

Open Water Medical is a leading provider of comprehensive health management with an emphasis on family medicine. With offices in Beaufort and Morehead City, North Carolina, the talented team of professionals at Open Water Medical have been serving the Crystal Coast community for over 30 years.

As a family medicine specialist practice, Open Water Medical is devoted to providing comprehensive health care to patients of all ages across entire lifetimes and generations. By treating their patients in the context of their family and their community, they ensure that they’re delivering the most detailed and thorough health care possible.

The quality of the care that patients receive at Open Water Medical is absolutely top-of-the-line. They’re one of the few practices in eastern North Carolina to be included in the Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue Quality Improvement Program (BQIP), which recognizes medical care that’s notably high performing and cost-effective. The organization of the practice is a patient-centered medical home (PCMH), a care philosophy that emphasizes accessible, team-based, and well-coordinated care that puts the patient first and encourages relationships based on trust, respect, and dignity.  

Open Water Medical follows a philosophy of individualized health care plans that emphasize disease prevention and healthy living practices. They believe that good care comes from an environment of collaboration between patients and doctors, where doctors truly listen to patients concerns and devote the time to educate them on their conditions and treatment options. Ultimately, they believe in providing compassionate care that prioritizes their patients’ well-being.

The patient care philosophy at Open Water Medical also guides how the practice’s offices are run. They provide flexible appointments in order to accommodate their clients’ schedules, accept Medicare and Medicaid, and are always welcoming new patients into their family.

They offer a wide range of services in order to give their patients as many care options under one roof as possible, such as KAQUN water, Icon™ laser treatments for scar, hair, and pigment removal, and advanced microorganism evaluation with advanced MicroGenGX® technology. They also offer a chronic care management program to ensure that their patients with chronic conditions are in constant supply of the treatment they need.
