A Fearrington Cares Education Program

Fearrington Cares is pleased to welcome Dr. Scott Kirby of the North Carolina Medical Board (NCMB). Dr. Kirby will address how the Board protects the public. He will discuss matters relevant to the patient/provider relationship and how to locate and vet a doctor or physician assistant as well as understanding when and how to file a complaint with the Board. You will have the chance to ask questions and receive clarification on issues such as the recent changes in prescribing pain medicines. Dr. Kirby is board certified in Internal Medicine, Rheumatology and Emergency Medicine. He is currently Associate Medical Director of the Board. NCMB exists to protect the people of North Carolina. They believe that an informed public will be aware of and more effectively able to utilize the resources of the Board while managing health care matters.
