Palmetto Proactive Healthcare, a direct primary care family medicine practice, will open at Drayton Mills Marketplace in Spartanburg in January 2018. The practice will occupy 1,736 square feet of space inside Suite 313, which once housed the mill’s health office, the new facility will offer exam rooms, a procedure room and lab testing capabilities.
The practice currently has offices on John B. White Sr. Boulevard in Spartanburg, as well as in Greenville and Columbia.
Founded in 2010 by doctors Jerome Aya-Ay and Chris McCarthy, Palmetto Proactive does not contract with insurance companies and instead solicits payment directly from patients or by way of an employer sponsorship that pays with cash, debit or credit card. Prices for lab work, for example, are posted up front. By removing excess paperwork, Palmetto Proactive doctors can spend more time with patients and reduce wait times, according to a news release.
“Our practice focuses on the patient. Drayton Mills is focused on building community, through its apartments, commercial spaces and amenities. We think our doctors can add to this great community and look forward to joining the Drayton family,” said Aya-Ay in the release.
