The packed moving van was in the parking lot of Lenoir Rhyne College in Hickory, NC that spring day in 1995 when Joanne received her BSN. She and her husband literally left her commencement headed to Emerald Isle where she began her career on the Crystal Coast with Carteret County's Health Dept. Joanne re-entered school, earned her FNP (family practitioner) degree and board certification, and in 2003 entered the private family medicine sector as a  provider for Doctor Jennifer Ranton of Swansboro Family Medicine. A few years later Joanne acquired Doctor Ranton's practice, which ultimately became Cape Carteret Family Medicine. Today CC Family Medicine is a doctor's office providing primary care in Cedar Point, NC.


Cape Carteret Family Medicine is no doc in a box. We know our return patients by first name. Our mission in family medicine is to provide personalized, high-quality care as-needed or on a preventative basis.  We have created a competent practice that we choose for our own family members and friends. 


Cape Carteret Family Medicine takes pride in offering personalized and friendly service. We do not overbook in order to allow quality time with you. Because your time is as important as ours, we strive to minimize your wait to a maximum of 15 minutes. We also realize that unexpected acute problems occur and allow time in our schedule to meet those needs as they arise. 


You diagnostic test results and appointment reminders are always delivered to you by a personal phone call from one of our staff, not a computer. As a matter of fact, even tho we offer all the advantages of electronic medical records keeping, we interact with YOU not a computer or tablet during your visit.   


We truly look at our patients as family and friends and strive to reflect this in our quality of care. Our patients consider us their family doctor. 


Regan Perkins, CNA and office manager, and Emily Woodard, Certified Phlebotomist and lab manager, both have been with CC Family Medicine for 10 years. These girls treat you with kid gloves, making you feel as much at home as possible while at the doctor's office. The goal is for you to feel comfortable, confident, and content with your family healthcare needs in our hands.
