Lonnie Lassiter, MD

Family Medicine located in Columbus, NC

Dr. Lonnie Lassiter is a board-certified family medicine specialist serving the Columbus, North Carolina area. At an early age, Dr. Lassiter decided to combine a keen desire to help others with a passion for science; these traits led him into medicine. A graduate of North Carolina State University, Dr. Lassiter completed his medical training at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. He acted as Chief Resident during his residency training at Florida Hospitals Residency in Orlando, Florida. In addition to his medical education, Dr. Lassiter completed a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Yale University. His strong desire to help others led him to a two-month medical mission in Bomet, Kenya, during his medical school training. The experience made him very aware of the value a physician can bring to a community.

To Dr. Lassiter, healthcare is a partnership between the patient and doctor. Trained in conventional medicine, Dr. Lassiter feels strongly one of his major functions is lifestyle coaching, teaching about proper nutrition, and helping patients maintain correct body chemistry. A holistic approach, Dr. Lassiter believes, helps make medical treatment more effective and promotes overall wellness. A major tenet of Dr. Lassiter’s philosophy is to provide patients with knowledge so they can be active participants in their care. In his quest to provide technologically-advanced treatments and comprehensive care, he quickly realized a new approach to wound care was badly needed in the Columbus area. He now has more than ten years of experience in treating complex chronic wounds like diabetic and venous foot ulcers, as well as traumatic wounds. His interest in aesthetics and nutrition led him into the fields of skin care and comprehensive patient care.
