For Medical Providers

Every day, one in five people across Charlotte struggle to access the care they need.  Many don’t have health insurance or the financial resources to seek medical treatment. Care Ring’s Physicians Reach Out program provides primary, specialty, and dental care to over 6,000 low-income, uninsured Mecklenburg County residents each year at no charge to the patient --- all thanks to the vision and generosity of our medical community. Last year, $51 million in life-saving, life-changing care was donated.

Provider Testimonials

"PRO makes it easy for me to give back. With no minimum required commitment, I can see as many or as few patients as I want, at times that are convenient for me. Patients are so grateful for their care, and are very compliant."  - Tricia Klosset, DDS, Smile Charlotte

“It has been incredibly satisfying. I am glad to be able to work with this amazing organization, and I hope to stay connected with the program as long as possible.” - Dr. Tagbo Ekwonu, Eastowne Family Physicians

"Often, we think about mission work in terms of going to a third-world country and taking care of vulnerable patients there. What many don’t realize is that our poor in America are also, and often equally, in need of expert medical and surgical care. Participating in PRO allows me to share my gifts in order to serve those in need right here in my own community." - Dr. Jesse Otero, OrthoCarolina
