COVID-19 Update


Thanks to all of our patients who have chosen to be vaccinated thus far.
If you have questions or concerns, consider these websites for more information:  




Per CDC guidelines, please have your vaccine ASAP. Please note the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are more effective against the delta variant than J&J. Please watch the news and above sites for updates regarding booster vaccines.




Sign up online at the DHHS website ( https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/ )
On that website, try to register for a shot under the "Find Vaccine Locations" tab. You are not limited to your county of residence.
Local pharmacies are administering the vaccine.
If you sign up for a WakeMed "My Chart" (via https://mychart.wakemed.org/MyChart-PRD/Authentication/Login? ) and then send us a portal message that you have done so, we may be able to add you to their waiting list faster.
You can also sign up to be added to the Duke waiting list by going to https://www.dukehealth.org/covid-19-update/covid-19-vaccine-update.


Best of luck getting through this trying time and process!!



At Mary J. Forbes, MD, PLLC, our goal is to provide patient centered, exceptional and up-to-date primary care for adults in a friendly, intimate setting. We recognize the uniqueness of each patient by tailoring individual care plans to each patient’s specific needs. We treat patients like individuals. To us you’re not “just a number.”

Dr. Forbes and her team of professionals have many years of experience in the healthcare field. In our practice, patients have a true medical home. The aim of the medical home concept goes back to the deepest roots of primary care – i.e. to prevent illness or restore health in a personalized environment of collaborative care.

We love seeing our patients, who range in age from late teens to seniors, and sincerely strive and hope to exceed your expectations of primary care.



Thanks to each and every one of you for entrusting your care to us over the years!
