Dr. Carey was born in Houston, Texas and remained in the "Lone-Star State" through his collegiate education at the University of Texas as well as medical school in Galveston.
He then completed his medical residency at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Dr. Brian Carey has been married twenty-five years to his wife, Colleen, an R.N., whom he met in the hospital during his emergency medicine residency. The "Carey Clan" includes three children, a cat and two dogs, one of which is a registered, and working, therapy dog. The family lives in Tryon where they enjoy North Carolina hiking trails, boating and 'family fun nights' that include games, cooking and music.
Solidly grounded in their faith, the Carey family is active in their religious life and consider their church family an extension of their own.
