About our Advanced Care Team

We are an independent Family Medicine practice located in Burgaw NC. We provide general medical care for children and adults. This includes treating everything from common colds to diabetes and heart failure. At Bryan Weckel MD Family Medicine, you always see the doctor. We employ no nurse practitioners or physicians assistants. We are a Patient Centered Medical Home certified through NCQA.

We strive to provide our patients with high quality care specific to their individual clinical needs and circumstances. We also offer diabetic education classes 4 times per years.  Our next class will be May 2nd 2018 at noon.  This will be held at our office and will focus on a diabetic diet.  The class will be lead by Dr. Weckel and is open to all current and prospective patients free of cost.  Please contact us at (910) 259-1718 to sign up.


If you need medical advice or care during business hours or need to schedule an appointment to discuss your healthcare needs, please call and speak with us at 910-259-1718 or send us a message through the portal.  


After hours access for current patients:  Dr. Weckel can be reached after hours by calling us at 910-259-1718 and leaving a message.  This is not a triage line and Dr. Weckel will return your call back within an hour.  

Patient portal:  We also have a patient portal that current patients can use to contact me directly:  Patient Portal Click Here.  I check this at least every 2 hours during work hours and at least once per calendar day on the weekends and holidays.


We have co-management agreements with Medac Urgent Care for non-emergent after hours medical needs. This means that we will share information with each other about your treatment in order to improve your care.  Please tell them that you are a patient here so they can send us information on your condition to us. They have 3 locations and the closest of these is located at 8115 Market Street in Porters Neck. Their hours are from 8am to 8 pm.  Their phone number is (910) 686-1972.  

We have co-management agreements with Trinity Wellness Center for psychiatry specialist care.  Their website is Trinity Wellness.  Their Phone number is (910) 343-8424.

We currently participate in an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) with our BCBS commercial and BCBS Medicare patients.   See the PDF below for more information if you have BCBS insurance.
