Meet Robert Hutchins, MD, MPH
Chapel Hill Internal Medicine
I am a third generation Internist. I grew up going on house calls and making rounds at the hospital with my dad in Wilmington, NC, where I grew up. I saw the relationships he built with his patients over his career, and I knew that the inter-personal aspect of medicine is very important. My clinical interests are management of chronic diseases, specifically cardiovascular disease, hypertension and hyperlipidemia, type 2 diabetes, chronic kidney disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). I also enjoy sports medicine. My philosophy of care is getting to know patients on a personal level and providing individualized care to them based on what their values are. I also believe that an "ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Outside of work, I love to cook (and eat!), travel, practice yoga and play basketball.
