A Love for Medicine, A Passion for Families: Dr. Erica Wallace
A Focus on Patient Relationships
Dr. Erica Wallace grew up in a small town in northeast Georgia. She looked up to her local doctor,who treated almost everyone in town. “Since the age of 7, I knew I wanted to be a physician,” she said. Now, Wallace aspires to get to know her own patients as well as he did. “I enjoy taking care of the entire family, including multiple generations.”
Wallace is a graduate of the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed her residency at Cone Health Family Medicine and worked for Kernodle Clinic in Burlington, NC, for five years. She currently resides in Greensboro, NC, with her husband and two children.
Wallace was recently hired by LeBauer Healthcare and has started work at LeBauer’s new location off of Horse Pen Creek Road in Northwest Greensboro. She looks forward to “getting to know the people in this area and building long-term patient relationships, while providing access to care when patients need it.”
Dedication to Her Patients
The philosophy Wallace follows while practicing medicine is to encourage her patients to eat right, exercise, and manage stress. “We often focus on diet and exercise; we need to keep in mind that managing stress is just as important,” she said. The family practitioner says stress management, as well as a healthy lifestyle, is important not only for her patients but for herself.
Wallace wants her patients to make the most out of their experience at her practice by using features like MyChart messaging to keep up with appointments, lab results, and medical history. She also says it’s a good idea to make a list of concerns or issues to discuss with your doctor before coming to an appointment, ensuring that you get the best care possible.
Obesity medicine has recently sparked the interest of Wallace, who is currently pursuing a certification in this field. “There is a great need for education and resources in this part of medicine, and I am really excited about this opportunity,” she said.
