OUR GOAL IS To provide the most comprehensive and cost-efficient medical care to patients with musculoskeletal disorders in Eastern North Carolina.


Coastal Arthritis and Rheumatism Associates, PA. is the medical office of David D. Fraser, MD. Dr. Fraser is a Board Certified Rheumatologist and a medical expert in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of arthritic, musculoskeletal, and rheumatic diseases.
As one of the only rheumatologic medical practices in the Coastal Carolina area, we are deeply committed to the evaluation, treatment, and caring for all patients referred to our office.  At Coastal Arthritis we offer a wide array of services to patients with rheumatic diseases.  These services include medical treatments, surgical interventions, physical therapy, laboratory services, digital radiological services, ultrasound, and durable medical equipment (DME) supplies.
Our office is conveniently located off Highway 17 just north of Jacksonville, NC. The office is easily accessible from New Bern, Camp Lejeune, Havelock, Duplin County, Swansboro, Morehead City and the rest of the Crystal Coast. We try our best to get all new patients seen in a timely fashion and, therefore, it is extremely important that our New Patient Instructions are completed and all required paperwork is finished prior to the scheduled appointment.  A page devoted solely to New Patients is included in this site with step-by-step instructions for patients.
