At Palmetto Proactive Healthcare, our goal is to keep you out of the hospital.

Although our training included managing patients in the hospital, our focus is out-patient clinical medicine. Your care in the hospital will be handled by board-certified specialists in hospital medicine.
We do manage acute injuries, aches and pains.
We do not have controlled pain medicines in the clinic and prescribe all medications electronically.
