After graduation from Bandys High School, Dr. Story continued his education at Lenoir-Rhyne University earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. After graduation from Lenoir-Rhyne he enrolled in medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and in 1996 earned the degree of Medical Doctor. After graduation he entered into residency training at Greenville Hospital Systems in Greenville, SC where he completed his Family Medicine training. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Family Medicine and is a full member in good standing with the American Academy of Family Physicians as well as a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Dr. Story’s medical interests include care for infants, children, teenagers, adults and geriatric patients. He is particularly focused on disease prevention and well care. Several common medical conditions that he treats extensively include hypertension, diabetes, thyroid disorders and lipid disorders. He also provides acute care for sickness/illness including infectious diseases, musculoskeletal sprains or strains, lacerations/injuries, rashes and other dermatological conditions.

His interests also emphasize the yearly preventative exam for adults age 18 and older where the doctor and patient have the time to discuss in detail their health status and ways to prevent illness and develop healthy habits. This is also a great chance to discuss age-appropriate laboratory evaluations, cancer screenings and specific preventative care for men and women at each stage of life.
