Dr. Doug Briggs


Doug Briggs, M.D., Chief Medical Officer

Dr. Doug Briggs comes full circle in joining NeighborHealth as medical director. His family moved to Raleigh in 1981, and he graduated from UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine in 1987.  After graduation, Dr. Briggs finished a family medicine residency program at UT Southwestern in Dallas in 1990. While in Dallas, he and his wife attended Dallas Theological Seminary and began planning a career serving in the developing world. From 1990 until 1995, he spent time in private practice in Dallas. He was involved in short-term trips to Guatemala, India and China.

In 1995, Dr. Briggs, his wife, Michaele, and their two small children moved to southwest China where he started a village doctor program and a walk-in clinic while working in a school for disabled adults. From 1998 until 2018 he was involved in training village doctors from the Chinese countryside, seeing patients from the poor villages, and taking part in various public health efforts to control the spread of infectious disease while working to put an end to ostracism of the sick and disabled in mainstream society.

Dr. Briggs’ medical care vision focuses on caring for individuals, families, and communities in a way that integrates all aspects of health with attention to physical, mental, emotional, and societal health. His intent is to combine health restoration, illness prevention, and preservation of personal dignity and autonomy while training patients how to be more involved with their own health.

Dr. Weathers’ lifelong dream has been to serve children and families by providing health care in a community context. She is driven by a belief in the fundamental dignity and the inherent worth of all people. Because of this core belief, Dr. Weathers understands that excellence in patient care requires human connections, as well as an understanding of the social, family and community contexts of each patient’s lived experience. As a result, Dr. Weathers enjoys the “art of medicine” as much as the “science of medicine.”

Dr. Weathers lives in Morrisville, is a lifelong student of the Spanish language and is a violinist.
