Dr. Chris Bullers grew up in Hickory, North Carolina. He attended Catawba College as an undergraduate, and after working for several years in the pharmaceutical industry, completed medical school at The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. After finishing his family medicine residency at Wake Forest University, he capped his medical training with a sports medicine fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. While there, he participated in the care of athletes – young, elderly, amateur, and professional. He has extensive training in the diagnosis and non-operative treatment of orthopaedic problems and also specializes in the management of concussions.

Dr. Bullers enjoys all outdoor activities especially when they involve his wife and two boys. He “practices what he preaches” when it comes to exercise and leading a healthy lifestyle.
