Bill Satterwhite, M.D., CPE



Bill Satterwhite brings a unique and practical perspective to the firm as both a licensed attorney and a licensed physician.

Bill spent five years practicing health care and hospital law before going to medical school. He practiced pediatrics for 15 years before moving into an executive role with a major academic medical center as its first Chief Health and Wellness Officer. During his time in this position, he used his combined knowledge and experience to develop direct care and alternative payment models for self-funded employers that saved the employers money, improved employee health, and brought significant revenues to the medical center.

Bill also is the founder of a health tech startup that has developed new patient acquisition tools. His experience is in health law, direct care models, and unique medical plans under ERISA.

Bill enjoys being outdoors, reading, and public speaking. He and his wife live in Davidson, N.C., where they enjoy spending time with their four children and five grandchildren.
