Dr. Forrest

Longtime NCMS member Brian Forrest, MD, was recognized as a “Changemaker” by Medical Economics magazine. The designation is given to a ‘special group of physicians who are working tirelessly to improve the lives of their patients, their own medical practice and the well-being of their community.

Dr. Forrest, a primary care physician in Apex, was one of only seven physicians nationwide showcased by the publication. He was recognized for founding Access Healthcare, “a practice considered one of the earliest direct primary care (DPC) practices in the U.S. [putting] Forrest on the map as a pioneer of the new practice type.” Read the article.
