Dr. Subin practiced in Moore County for nearly 30 years before leaving practice to pursue a career as an airline pilot for American Airlines. He returned to practice in November 2018.
“I am thrilled to join FirstHealth Orthopaedics and return to taking care of many of the patients whom I’ve had the privilege to care for throughout my 30 year medical career ,” says Dr. Subin. “FirstHealth offers an award-winning orthopaedic program with a joint replacement program that has one of the highest success rates in the country, and I am proud to be associated with this organization.”
