15 minutes with… d. Doug Whitehead from Dr. Pro Active

Dr. Doug Whitehead has been a primary care physician with over 30 years in medicine.

After medical school at MUSC in Charleston and a residency in the Greenville Hospital System (now Prisma Health), he was a founding partner of Greer Family Medicine. In 2019, after nearly 25 years in the practice, he joined Simpsonville-based Proactive MD.

At Proactive MD, Whitehead cared for patients at the company’s Spartanburg Health Center and is currently at the company’s new Greenville Health Center, which opened in January on Villa Street.

John Collier, CEO of Proactive MD, founded the company in 2016 to be a catalyst for change in the way health care is delivered – to return the focus to advanced primary care and the patient.

Proactive MD partners with both public and private sector employers to provide their employees with high quality care in a dedicated, conveniently located health center – often on-site to large companies. The result is better patient outcomes, healthier and more productive workers at a lower cost than traditional healthcare plans.

The company is growing rapidly and operates in 17 states and has more than 70 healthcare centers, including 11 in South Carolina.
