Dr. Carol Rupe has relocated to Roanoke Rapids from Charlotte, North Carolina. She brings more than 25 years of clinical family medicine experience, combined with 20 years of inpatient care for her patients, and over 20 years as a medical director for several long-term care facilities. She wants to provide every patient with personal attention and a true understanding of what you and your family need.
Dr. Rupe is a former United States Air Force physician. She understands the true meaning of service and the value of personal sacrifice. As a former small business owner, Dr. Rupe also understands the challenges that small business owners face in this tough economy with trying to increase sales, adjusting to higher business expenses, and keeping your employees focused and motivated to deliver top quality products and services - on time. Making matters more difficult, the cost of keeping your employees and their family members healthy has become harder every year.
And as a breast cancer survivor, she knows the despair that an unresponsive and uncaring medical system can bring. She may have had personal experience with a health condition you may be concerned about now. Drop her a note and ask some general questions - nothing too private or personal - you haven't met yet! Perhaps, together - you, Dr. Carol Rupe, and your friends at Roanoke Clinic can work out a treatment plan to address those concerns, and get you onto a path leading to better health.
A NEW BEGINNING
“It is amazing how a single event can change your life. I was in an auto accident,” relates Dr. Rupe, “and found myself requiring surgery, and extensive hospitalization. Like many, I did not have health insurance. It brought a new found appreciation for the challenges that many people who live in this county have when life alters your world.”
“As a result, I have committed to working with Halifax County, Halifax Regional Medical Center, and local business owners to see how we can improve our community's health, improve our local economy, increase employment opportunities, and develop lower cost options for our business community so that they can extend health benefits to more employees.”
Dr. Rupe wants to thank the community of Roanoke Rapids for the warm welcome, and the support she has received by Halifax Regional Medical Center. She is looking forward to developing new life stories with each of you in the years to come.
