A Letter From Dr. Jorge

June 1, 2020

I am excited to announce that our new clinic, located at 309 S. Sharon Amity, Suite 206, Charlotte, NC, is now open.

​Over the past year, I’ve thought deeply about what medicine means to me and the type of care I want to provide you.

​How would it feel to spend more time together exploring your health goals?

​Maybe you’d like to have more energy, reduce the number of prescription meds you’re taking, lose weight, or increase your mental clarity?

​Or perhaps you’re tired of knowing something is wrong with your body and nobody is listening to you? Each of us has unique health needs, but the current volume-based insurance model supports standardized “sick” quick care versus individualized “well” care.

​Our mission at Companion Health is to help you live healthier, more joyful lives. We “deep learn” each of our clients by focusing on your unique health goals, genes, lifestyle, and diet. No two people are the same, and we don’t think your healthcare should be either. We offer longer, more frequent doctor visits, health coaching, and more convenient care options, including tele-medicine.

Companion Health is a direct health care practice and does not accept insurance. You still need health insurance for things like catastrophic illness, specialty care, and prescription medications.

​For some of you, this may come as a disappointment. I understand, and I hope you will give me the opportunity to share our vision with you.

​We’d be honored to help guide you on a positive, transformative health journey!

​All my best,
Carlos Jorge, MD
