We know that when you invest in relationships and support patients beyond the traditional expectations of primary care, people stay healthier and lead happier lives. Right now, Medicare eligibles in North Carolina, like patients around the country, are in need of the time, attention and quality care that we provide,” said Rushika Fernandopulle, MD, MPP, co-founder, and CEO of Iora.
