Helpful Tips for Fighting COVID-19
Stay home and call your healthcare practitioner if needed.
Most people who get COVID-19 will recover. The CDC recommends that you stay home if you have mild symptoms such as fever and cough but if you develop shortness of breath or difficulty breathing call your healthcare practitioner to see if you need medical care.
Some people are at higher risk of getting very sick with COVID-19. People at higher risk should call their healthcare practitioner if they develop symptoms of fever and cough. The following are at higher risk:
Are 65 years or older
Live in a nursing home or long term care facility
Have a high risk condition that includes:
Chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma
Heart disease with complications
Other underlying medical condition such as diabetes, renal disease or liver disease
People who are pregnant should be monitored since they are known to be at risk for severe viral illness.
Call your healthcare practitioner or 911 right away if you have:
Shortness of breath
Chest pain or pressure

Bertha brings more than 30 years of experience to her practice. A native of Duplin County, she began her career as a nurse and worked at Wilson Memorial Hospital and Hamlet Hospital. After returning to Duplin County, she worked as a home health nurse where she was inspired to fill the health care void in rural areas across the state. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at East Carolina University and was then selected for a Nurse Practitioner scholarship program. She attended classes at East Carolina and Duke University under a pilot program for nurses to expand their education and continue to work. She graduated in 2003 and joined Duplin Medical Center which serves the under-insured/under-served population and was a part of North Carolina Rural Health in Raleigh.
In 2005, she founded Carolina Coast Primary Medicine in Kenansville, NC. She sold that practice in 2016 and moved to Moore County to be closer to her three granddaughters. She was led to open her current practice in Aberdeen, NC in 2018. She continues to fulfill the need of Holistic Care.

"After looking for a new doctor in this area and reading the reviews, I decided to schedule an appointment at this office. I have read reviews that seemed a little too good to be true, but this place was the real deal. I really appreciate the way she explained everything to me and triple checked to make sure she addressed all of my concerns during my visit. I HIGHLY recommend this office for medical care."
