I have known since I was 10 years old that I wanted to pursue a career in medicine. I knew I wanted to be in a position to make a difference in people’s lives by partnering with them on their health care journey. I chose a career in family medicine because I believe in a holistic approach and what better way to do that than to be able to treat an entire family.
My philosophy of care is that the physician/patient relationship is a partnership. A strong partnership requires engagement by both parties. To engage effectively both parties must feel respected, they must feel they are heard, they must feel a mutual trust. If this foundational relationship is laid, then the actions and activities necessary to heal or maintain optimal health, have a greater opportunity to manifest.
In my spare time, I am active in church and community organizations. I enjoy cooking, traveling and spending time with my husband and three children.

Tracey Aguilar, PA-C is a board certified Physician Assistant. She attended Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Physician Assistant Program and has over 10 years of experience.
She is passionate about improving patient’s health and quality of life. She focuses on each patient as an individual and partners with them to achieve mutually agreeable goals. Compassionate and genuine, she fosters trust with patients and cares for them as though they are family members.
“Quality of life means everything. When patients are not able to enjoy normal day to day activities, or continue to engage in actives they love because of pain, it impacts them immensely. Our goal is to get them back to things they love to do. My personal experience with Regenerative Medicine has been nothing short of amazing. Being an athlete all of my life, I began experiencing knee pain. With injections in both of my knees, I have been pain free and able to continue doing all of the things I love to do!” ~ Tracey Agular, PA-C
