ABOUT OUR PRACTICE
Located in Kingsley Town Center in Fort Mill, SC, New South Family Medicine is a Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice that safeguards what matters most: the patient-doctor relationship.
DPC is a membership-based model that emphasizes longer, more personal visits with your doctor, and access directly via cell phone, text, and Skype. For one low monthly fee, we are able to provide patients with longer, relaxed visits, significantly lower-cost medications/labs, and a variety of ways to connect with your physician, Dr. Jessica Kaiser Mendelsohn.
In her previous practice, Dr. Mendelsohn had a patient panel of over 3,000 patients! Through the DPC model, she limits her panel to no more than 600 patients. This means she has 5 times longer to spend with YOU to focus on what is important for you to stay healthy. There are no co-pays and all fees are transparent. We pass all of our wholesale savings on to you. To learn more about the DPC model of care, click here.

She will sew up your laceration, remove your skin tags, biopsy a skin lesion you are unsure about, incise and drain an abscess along with multiple other acute, non-life-threatening emergencies. If you are sick with possible flu, strep throat, UTI, pneumonia, or other illness, she can manage most of this for you as well.

There are several methods to administer hormone therapy. Each has unique benefits depending on which hormones are being replaced.
