What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center?
I have been practicing general internal medicine for a number of years in a multispecialty clinic in Florida. I decided to come here for two main reasons. First, I am very excited to be involved in an academic medical center practice because it allows me to practice up-to-the-minute internal medicine care, and it allows me to be involved in the teaching/training mission of the Medical Center. Second, I am a North Carolinian, and am excited about returning to my home state.
What are your clinical specialties?
My area of practice and interest is adult primary care, focusing on preventive care, acute illness care, and providing patients with care coordination for their medical problems, which often involve many different physicians in different specialties.
Why did you decide to become a primary care doctor?
Being a primary care doctor was the best way to accomplish the goals detailed in my answer above.
What is your patient care philosophy?
Simply put: to provide the best care I am capable of, for every patient every time.
What do you enjoy most about working with patients?
Each patient is unique. Each patient has his or her unique personality, life experiences and challenges. Each has his or her unique medical concerns and needs. Working with patients is always challenging, but very rewarding.
What type of volunteer and/or community activities are you involved in? What fun facts should we know about you?
Because my wife and I have only recently moved to Winston-Salem, we have not had the opportunity to become involved yet. We have always been very active in our church and are looking for a church to join here in town. I am very interested in the DEAC clinic, but have not yet had the chance to see if I can help with that.
I enjoy running (well I enjoy it more when it is finished for the day) and I love to snow ski.

My annual physical exam was thorough and professionally conducted.
Dr. Hix was excellent as usual. He is always very thorough and caring and listens well. He is the best!
*Dr. Hix had great compassion, clear communication. Took ALL THE time we needed!
While the provider is polite and professional, he often seems rushed, as if he is very busy and must get to the next client or business.
Dr Hix is an excellent physician knows all my medical history
*Dr. HIs is the most efficient, professional, all business, physician I have ever known. I'm pleased that he is my PCD.
Rated confidence in this provider a 4 only because of my limited experience with him. Every indication I've had so far is that he is highly competent, caring and approachable, but I have not had any illnesses or major issues in the time I have been seeing him, so my context is only for well care.
Dr. Hix is an excellent physician.
Dr Hix, the best PCP, a man could ask for
Dr. Hix is an excellent physician. I cannot say enough about his caring manner.
Dr. Hix did a great job in helping me, and explaining what may have been wrong
I don't always feel He listens to concerns I have
He is excellent in many ways. Wish he would slow down get face out of computer and be friendlier. I get feeling that I get 20 minuets and that is all.
I am a new patient for Dr. Hix - less than a year, so am just getting to know him. So far, I am very pleased.
Dr Hix is wonderful ! Very professional and knowledgeable !,
