Dr. Gregory Michael Lavins has joined CenterWell as a family medicine physician. Dr. Lavins completed a family medicine residency at the University of Washington (UW) in 2021 and received his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati, where he was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts from Ohio State University, where he graduated summa cum laude and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He has been recognized with several academic awards and has had research presented at medical conferences such as the UW Family Medicine Department Fair and the STFM Spring Conference. Before joining CenterWell in 2023, Dr. Lavins worked as an attending physician at UNC Physicians Network-Orange Family Medical Group in Hillsborough, NC. He enjoys working with seniors and believes in helping patients find and achieve their definition of health using the latest advancements in science and technology, mindfulness, or simply building a trusting relationship, a care philosophy aligned with CenterWells patient-centered values. Dr. Lavins pursued a career in medicine out of a fascination with the interplay between human physiology and the environment around us and feels there is no greater pleasure than helping a patient understand and take control of their health. In his free time, he likes working in his garden, playing folk guitar, and relaxing with a good book.
