Dr. Wells Edmundson

Dr. Edmundson Internal Medicine Physician

"I have always wanted to be a doctor, even when I was a child. I couldn’t imagine becoming anything else. I chose to specialize in internal medicine because I enjoy the diagnostic challenges it presents, and the way it can make a dynamic difference in the lives of the patients we treat."



Like many others who entered the medical profession, I chose this career because I wanted to make a positive impact on my community. That’s one reason why I volunteer at the Men’s Healing Place, which makes such a great difference in the lives of patients.

I’m a Raleigh native, and there are so many things I enjoy about living here, particularly the NC Museum of Natural History. I also enjoy photography, and the J.C. Raulston Arboretum is the perfect place to take photos of flowers.

I am a member of the Bull and Bear Society, the Royster Medical Society, the Western Wake Studio Art Group and the John Rex Society.

I’m married and have two children, Brian and Erin. I’m also an annual contributor to the SPCA—which I’m sure my beagle-boxer mix ( Buddy ) appreciates.

Influential Book:

The most influential book I have read is the Bible because it grounds us to the basic tenets of living.

Surprising Facts

I enjoy French language and culture, Civil war history, and studying financial investments.
