    Who We Are

    Novant Health Hillsdale Medical Associates is your family's one stop for comprehensive medical care. Whether you are sick and in need of immediate attention, or looking for a doctor to complete an annual physical or school physical, our providers are here for you. From our office in Advance, North Carolina, we regularly serve patients from Davie, Forsyth, Iredell, Yadkin and Davidson counties.

    Why Family Medicine?

    Dr. Takashi Hirata is board certified in family medicine, and Margaret Bovender and Lindsay Hartman are family nurse practitioners. This means they are trained to care for patients of all ages, regardless of ailment. Everyone in your family can be seen by the same providers in one single office. There is no need to travel to separate offices or to switch providers as you or your family members age. By receiving pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric care in one place, you will always have a provider who knows you and your family.

    Areas Of Service

    When we say Novant Health Hillsdale Medical Associates offers comprehensive medical care, we mean it! As soon as your child is born, you'll find our office is a caring, comfortable environment to get care and ask questions. We offer annual physicals and school physicals to our pediatric patients, along with sick-patient care and all routine vaccinations. We also offer the full range of adult and geriatric care services, including gynecologic care, management of chronic diseases and medical weight loss assistance.

    Network of Care

    Our practice is part of Novant Health, a network of hospitals and physicians across the Southeast. Should you ever need care from a specialist, our association with Novant Health gives you access to providers at the tops of their fields.

    Novant Health Hillsdale Medical Associates partners with Novant Health Davie Medical Associates to provide care on holidays and weekends. We share medical records electronically, so should you need care when our office is closed, the providers at Novant Health Davie Medical Associates will have access to your information, and our office will easily be able to learn about the care you received from our sister office.

    We also work closely with the providers at PrimeCare, a network of urgent care clinics in our area to provide acute care for sick and injured patients. No appointment is necessary, and you can trust that you will receive the same quality care you have come to expect from Novant Health practices.

    Should you or your family ever need emergency care, the emergency department at Clemmons Medical Center is conveniently located and staffed 24 hours a day by board-certified physicians and nurses trained in emergency medicine. On-site lab services and surgical suites are also offered here.
