After 37 years of serving the Mooresville community, Full Circle Family Medicine founder Dr. James W. McNabb is retiring.

McNabb worked hard for nearly four decades to create the old country doctor’s office in the modern era.

“I have hoped to create a welcoming medical home for my patients by providing access to compassionate, supportive, evidence-based, high-quality medical care on a long-term basis,”  he explained.

Over the course of his career, McNabb has made many contributions to healthcare and family medicine. He has given hundreds of lectures at local, state, and national levels on various topics, including skin diseases/cancers, skin procedures, sports medicine, and joint/soft tissue injections.

During his years of practice, McNabb published several successful editions of “A Practical Guide to Joint and Soft Tissue Injection and Aspiration.”

Among all of his notable accomplishments, he admits he is most proud of assembling “a highly functioning team of professionals” through his devoted staff at Full Circle Family Medicine.

“Piedmont HealthCare would like to express our deepest appreciation to Dr. McNabb and his faithful service to this organization and his community for the past 22 years,” said Jeffrey Smith, CEO of Piedmont HealthCare. “His hard work and dedication have left a lasting impact here at Piedmont HealthCare. He will be dearly missed.”

McNabb plans to take a much-needed vacation following his retirement.

“I am looking forward to spending quality time with my wife Liz, our children, and grandchildren. I will continue working on my personal fitness and health, playing jazz trombone with the Lake Norman Big Band, exploring fly-fishing in the North Carolina mountains, and working with St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.”

McNabb will continue to work around the country with medical teaching and may even write another edition of the Joint and Soft Tissue injections textbook.

McNabb’s last day in office will be August 12.

Beginning August 15, Full Circle Family Medicine is transitioning to Fox Internal Medicine. Dr. Jessica Fox is now accepting new patients at Fox Internal Medicine, 435 East Statesville Avenue, Mooresville. For more information on Dr. Fox, or to schedule an appointment, contact Piedmont HealthCare Fox Internal Medicine at (704)-663-5056.
