Dr. Takashi Hirata understands how complex medical care can seem and tries to simplify the process for his patients. Family medicine allows him to care for the entire family under one roof. Dr. Hirata is proud to be part of a practice small enough to offer personal attention but large enough to provide comprehensive care. While he likes seeing a variety of patients, Dr. Hirata has a particular interest in office procedures, sports medicine, fracture management, adolescent issues and women's health issues. When he is not spending time with his patients, Dr. Hirata enjoys spending time with his own family. He and his wife have two active boys and love cheering for Tarheel sports, going to the beach or exploring in the woods.
