SC Top 20 Under 40
Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Dr. DeJesus moved to Charleston, SC to complete her residency training at MUSC and Trident Hospital in Family Medicine. After completing her residency, she obtained a position at a private practice in Walterboro, SC where she was employed. She served in this capacity for 3 years. Over the course of those 3 years she began to see many flaws in the way physicians were being forced to practice medicine. Seeing 25-30 patients per day hardly left time for any real doctor-patient relationships to form. She decided this was not how she wanted to spend the rest of her career. In February 2015, she opened Family Wellness Center of Charleston, with the mission to provide quality, personalized health care at an affordable cost. She treats all ages, from the youngest to the oldest and all medical conditions. Her main focus and passion however is to help people achieve health and wellness in their lives.
