For about three decades, S. Pat Stuart, Jr., MD, has devoted his life to medicine. He joined the practice that is now Novant Health Triad Surgical Associates in 1990. "I am proud of the practice I have helped to build and the remarkable care we deliver to each patient," Dr. Stuart said. "We give our best effort to each patient regardless of how complicated the issues they face. We individualize care for every patient instead of sticking with only specific treatment regimens."
Dr. Stuart sees his responsibility as a doctor extends beyond choosing treatments for his patients. "I enjoy helping my patients understand their acute problems," he explained. "I want them to have the information they need and want to make educated decisions about their care."
Outside of work, Dr. Stuart enjoys spending time with his three grown sons. "When they were younger, we all enjoyed participating in team sports," he recalled. "Now, we enjoy hunting and fishing together. I consider big game hunting and fishing two of my favorite hobbies, and I'm happy my sons can enjoy these activities with me."
