I am looking for a family doctor here in Morehead. My old doctor is about an hour away and I don't want to go all that way just for a standard visit. Who is the best one in Morehead?

Avoid Dr. Earl (Chip) Wood - He is a nice guy but has been known to miss some things.

Chip Wood is great if you want to hear a sermon about what the Bible says against drinking, smoking, tattoos, sex, being gay, lying, cheating and stealing during your examination.

Well I do not mine Wood being a Christian at all, but I do wish he was better at diagnosing things. Also Wood has never started preaching at me unless I first asked something about Church etc... But if a person thought they had an STD or something like that, then you certainly would NOT want to see Chip. Still my issue with Wood is how poorly he has diagnosed problems. I could write about many true stories, but why bother? You get the picture.

Now Wood is REALLY GOOD about charging you a low fee IF he knows you are unemployed with no insurance etc.. He may even be the least expensive doctor in Morehead for the most needy people.

I have pretty good insurance so that isn't too much of an issue. So, now I know who to stay away from, but who IS a good family doctor?

Most people like Dr. Wiegel, but he is expensive and some has so many patients that he has 3 assistance. But others have a dim view of him when elderly patients get sick- some love him, some dislike him due to how he practices on his oldest patients, as some family members have let their views known here about that. But all in all he has to be one of the more popular doctors if you have good insurance and can get to see him, as he has A LOT of patients. Be ready for long waits, but he does take a lot of time with each patient and has a great bed side manner. Just avoid talking politics with him, as he has ran for office.

I really like Dr. Dreama Rucker. She is in the Morehead Medical Specialists building. She has been my doctor for about 7 years and I can not say enough good things about her and her staff. I recommend her highly :D

Dr. Wiegel finally diagnosed a VERY hard to diagnose disease that my mother has. Many doctors may take over a year figuring this one out, but Dr. Wiegel figured it out in a few weeks of tests, no easy job from what I have read.

Dr. Craig Borrows is a great Dr. for the whole family. He is in the new building behind the hospital. His whole staff is very good and friendly.

You might want to try Wendy Fletcher at Health Plus. She is pretty easy to get in to see, she holds a few walk in spots open each day for emergencies. She is a Nurse Practitioner, the Health Plus clinic is hers and she has recently brought in a couple others, as well. She is quite up on current medical issues. I've gone to her for several years and she's good.

I don't think I'll be taking the advice of a person like you who cannot even put together an intelligent sentence or spell correctly. I don't doubt that your keen insight into medical issues is just as flawed.
dont think so

He diagnoised a friend of mine with CANCER, and said she only had a year to live. She thought she was dying for the last 3 years. She was eventually seen by another doctor in another state, and was told she did NOT have cancer, and he didn't think she ever had any to begin with. This was wonderful news to her family and all that loves her, but to be preparing to pass on, and all the emotions involved was alot to deal with. I would NOT recommend this doctor to anyone.

I like Dr. Conley if she doesn't know she will send you on to a specialist that will know your ailment.
