A Conversation With Jake Brayboy, MD

Name: Jake Brayboy, MD

Role at Avance: Family Physician at Avance Care Central Raleigh

Years at Avance Care: 2 ½ years

My first job: Cutting grass to earn enough money to buy a pair of Air Jordan sneakers.

Why primary care:  Because of the variety. Variety in patient types (from infants to geriatrics) and variety of medical issues (from sore throats to preventive health care) and everything in between.

Why I love Avance Care: Avance’s committed focus on the patient and their needs. From convenient scheduling to the services provided on-site. Also, the supportive work environment from the front desk personnel all the way up the ladder to corporate leaders.

If I wasn’t a primary care provider, I would be: A bread baker.

My favorite part of medicine is:  Getting to be directly involved in helping people’s quality of life on a daily basis.

If someone wanted to start a conversation with me, they should ask me about:  Punk rock and Hip-Hop.

How I connect to patients:  Staying humble. Also, by making their health a shared decision-making process as opposed to dictatorship.

The one piece of medical advice I tell my patients but have a difficult time incorporating into my own life:  Avoid junk food (especially Doritos).

If I have a three day weekend, I can be found:  Spending time with my wife and son doing outdoor activities like going to the pool, hiking, or at a park.

The four people I would invite to my ultimate dinner party:  My wife, Thich Nhat Hanh, Tupac Shakur, and Johnny Rotten.
