Patient Empowerment & Accountability



Our founder, board-certified family physician Chelsea Burgin, MD, created Embrace to empower individuals in her community by addressing their medical needs directly. Taking time to listen, weighing the pros and cons, and facilitating each discussion to discern the best action plan are all at the heart of Embrace. Having worked in urgent care and emergency departments in both North and South Carolina, Dr. Burgin is a testimony of caution with reference to the cookie-cutter approach of medicine.

Passionate about education, Dr. Burgin has taught at all levels: From community-based talks to children’s clubs and schools to educating interest groups in public libraries and wellness centers to local news interviews. As one of the founding faculty for the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Greenville, she cherishes memories of teaching rising physicians how to communicate with compassion. Teaching bedside ultrasound skills to medical students, emergency medicine residents, and physician colleagues solidified her delight in instruction and skill sharing. Dr. Burgin remains zealous about educating patients on the ins and outs of acute and chronic medical conditions.

One illustration of Dr. Burgin’s accomplishments was with the Journal of Urgent Care Medicine in June 2020, when she spearheaded their first issue highlighting point-of-care ultrasound. They stated, “Dr. Burgin’s expertise… began with a curiosity that blossomed into fascination early in her career,” exemplifying the foundational keystones of Embrace.

Dr. Burgin leads Embrace as we enjoy being the direct patient advocate, the creative detective, an intentional assessor, a partner in decisions, and the treatment activist. Accountability and mindfulness are necessary qualities to succeed in today’s ever-changing demands on life and wellness sustainability. Dr. Burgin’s medical family, Embrace, is here to partner with you and yours.
