New Medical Practice to open in Hampstead

Dr. Manning to open practice in Hampstead

Dr. James Manning, an experienced internist, will host a grand opening of his new Hampstead Internal

Medicine office on Oct. 23. Located at 16747 US Hwy 17 in the Oak Tree Plaza, Dr. Manning offers “old

fashioned service and state of the art primary care.”

“I have lived in Hampstead for 10 years,” said Dr. Manning. “My wife, Tina, and I raised our children in

Hampstead. As Hampstead continues to grow, I identified the need for an internal medicine practice.”

Dr. Manning brings a distinguished career in health care to Hampstead. He worked in Washington where

he served as Chief of Staff at ECU Beaufort Hospital. He taught in the Department of Internal Medicine

at Eastern Carolina University where his focus areas included drug side effects and interactions as well

as teaching communication skills to help doctors speak in real and understandable language with

patients and families. He said his proudest work has been taking care of the people of eastern North

Carolina and teaching and mentoring the next generation of doctors.

“In addition to teaching, I set up and ran medical programs in multiple hospitals, including ECU Beaufort,

ECU Medical Center, Lenoir Hospital, and Chowan Hospital. During the COVID pandemic, I worked in

several hospital Intensive Care Units to care for patients,” said Dr. Manning. “But my life-long goal has

been to open a primary care practice.”

By opening his practice in Hampstead, Dr. Manning will implement the principles he taught – to take

time to get to know his patients and understand what is important for the health of his patients.

“While offering old fashioned care, we also provide a state-of-the-art in-house lab that can perform

blood work in as little as 15 minutes.”

Chronic disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart failure plague many Americans. Dr.

Manning specializes in taking care of patients with more complex diseases such as these.

“If you feel you are taking too much medication, or if you’re having trouble managing chronic disease,

call us,” he urged.

Hampstead Internal Medicine accepts Medicare patients in addition to most types of insurance.

“Since we are a new practice, we currently have space available,” said Dr. Manning. “We can usually get

new patients an appointment within a week, and for our established patients we offer same day or next

business day appointments.”

Dr. Manning also points out that many patients qualify for extra services. “Most Medicare patients

qualify for a care management program, which is an extra level of service and support. Often, they don’t

know about these benefits, or the fact that they are covered by Medicare. We enroll patients who

qualify for this program and that is a big help.”

Working with Dr. Manning is Holly Kilian FNP, a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner. A graduate of

UNCW, Kilian resides in Hampstead with her husband and two children.

Dr. Manning, a native of Beulaville, worked in a local pharmacy during high school. He graduated from

medical school at UNC-Chapel Hill.
