Office Address


  • I have been a board certified Rheumatologist since 1992. I received my M.D. and MPH from UNC Chapel Hill in 1983, completed Residency in Internal Medicine at UMASS Medical Center in Worcester MA in 1987, Fellowship in Rheumatology and Immunology at Duke University in 1991 and then joined the Faculty in the Division of Rheumatology and Immunology at UNC Chapel Hill in 1992.

    I retired from UNC Rheumatology after 25 years in 2014 and opened a private practice as Dooley Rheumatology in Chapel Hill at Vilcom Center with Chapel Hill Doctors. With the practice expansion, I decided to join with Wake Med in January, 2017 and develop a new rheumatology clinic. I see new and familiar patients, conduct clinical trials and will soon open an infusion clinic on site. As a private practitioner, I am delighted to report that there are no parking or facility fees at my new practice.

    I continue to follow my primary research interests in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and the racial, ethnic, environmental and hormonal risks to the disorder and to kidney involvement from it as adjunct Professor of Medicine in the UNC Kidney Center. I also continue to support the Lupus Foundation of America as a Member of the Scientific and Advisory Committee.
