About Me

I’m Paul C. Black, MD, a board-certified family medicine physician, practicing with Phelps Health since 2020. I was a former football team physician in Virginia and also hold a chiropractic degree. Our bodies have the unique ability to heal themselves, and I take a natural approach to care, when appropriate. My special interests include holistic and preventive care, and manual therapy. I see patients of all ages.

I entered the medical field because I wanted to help relieve suffering. As a doctor, I look for elegant, simple solutions. I chose Phelps Health, in particular, because of the patient-centered care our organization provides.

I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but currently live in Waynesville, Missouri. My wife and I are the parents of two sons.
