CHARLOTTE – A new kind of doctor’s office is coming to North Carolina and it has just debuted one of five new practices arriving in the state on Pineville-Matthews Road.
Iora Primary Care held a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony Oct. 2 to celebrate the opening of its new practice. The event brought together prospective patients and community leaders to mark the arrival of Iora and its unique, relationship-based care.
“Our mission is to restore humanity to health care through relationship-based care” said Sonia Millsom, chief growth officer at Iora Health. “That care is built on both the relationships we have with our patients, as well as those we build within the community, so we are thrilled to be arriving here in Charlotte to help deliver better primary care in a new and different way.”
The celebration kicked off with a breakfast reception, allowing attendees to visit and tour the new practice, as well as meet the practice’s lead physician Dr. Melanie McMinn.
Dr. McMinn, who is board-certified in both internal medicine and lifestyle medicine, was named one of Charlotte Magazine’s “Top Docs” in 2018. She joined Iora out of a passion for transforming healthcare and developing trusted relationships with patients and their families.
“What I love most as a primary care physician is really developing long-term relationships with patients and tackling complex problems together,” McMinn said. “Iora’s relationship-based care allows me to treat the whole health of a person, which is exactly the type of care I want to be delivering to patients.”
Dr. McMinn’s medical interests include hypertension, culinary medicine, plant-based nutrition, mindfulness and other lifestyle services that help patients live healthier lives.
Iora Primary Care is a primary care doctor’s office for adults on Medicare that aims to build strong relationships with patients. Teams work together to treat the whole person while addressing their questions, concerns and goals.
