Helen Mantila, M.D., says she has two passions in life: being a mother and being a physician.

“They’re both hard jobs, but the most rewarding ones I could imagine,” she says.

Dr. MantilaThis mother of three joined FirstHealth of the Carolinas last year as a primary care physician in Richmond County. On July 8, she moved to the FirstHealth Family Care Center-Seven Lakes, joining a family medicine practice that also includes Dan Matthews, P.A.-C, and Amanda Martin, ANP.

Board certified in family medicine, Dr. Mantila earned her undergraduate degree from Purdue University in Indiana and her medical degree from the Indiana University School of Medicine. She was elected chief resident during her residency at the University of California-San Diego (UCSD) and later spent five years as a UCSD faculty member, caring for patients, mentoring resident doctors, and teaching medical student classes.

She takes pride in being a family doctor and having the privilege of providing health care to entire families.

“I truly enjoy providing health care to the entire family,” she says. “There is great value in a doctor knowing the whole family, and family medicine is unique in our training to be able to care for children, adults and seniors. The diversity of the care we provide in family medicine is extremely rewarding. I particularly enjoy practicing preventive care and participating in patient education.”

Dr. Mantila, her husband, and their children make their home in Seven Lakes.

“I love being a part of this community,” she says, “and I look forward to working with the families here on their health and wellness.”

The FirstHealth Family Care Center-Seven Lakes is located at 1035-C Seven Lakes Drive in Seven Lakes. All three providers are currently accepting new patients, and appointments can be made by calling (910) 673-0045.
