our Company History

BraVa Health started as Palmetto Express Clinic and opened its doors for business on April 9, 2018, on Dick Pond Road in Myrtle Beach. Following our mission statement, “To Always Provide Quality, Affordable Healthcare in a Comfortable and Safe Environment.” After a very successful first year we had outgrown our initial space and moved down 17 Bypass to the Murrells Inlet area and started our second year in a much larger space. Since then, we have had the honor of winning the Best of the Beach award for Best Primary Care in both 2020 and 2021. 2021 also brought us the honor of the double award of also being the Best Urgent Care.


Soon after relocating to our new space, we began developing a business plan to bring BraVa Health to the Palmetto Express business family. After an extensive remodel and even more extensive training of staff and providers we opened the doors of BraVa MedSpa in April of 2021. Since then, we have been able to offer complete patient care for the entire body to our patients and we carry that on to today.


Due to our growth here in the Myrtle Beach area we have brought on more staff, we now have Casey Leber and Maureen Brindley, both Family Nurse Practitioners, working with Brandy on the healthcare side. These additions have made it possible to continue to provide the best care possible for our patients.


Our front desk staff, led by our Office Manager, Karen Painter, are always happy to help with whatever our patients need. Fabi, Maddie, and Caroline are always able to help with scheduling, checking in, questions and referrals. These ladies ensure our company’s success by putting our patient’s needs in the forefront of how we do business.

BraVa Health is founded on the philosophy that good, quality, effective healthcare can be provided at an affordable cost for patients with and without insurance. We offer a low cash pay visit rate and transparent pricing for additional services. We think you would prefer to pay an affordable rate at time of service and never have to worry about a bill. BraVa Health can meet the acute and chronic healthcare needs of most patients. We can’t wait to be your family clinic!

Clients share their experience

"Seriously such a blessing to find this place!! The wait was not long, the receptionist was so kind and answered all of my questions patiently and the Nurse made my child feel so comfortable! She was so kind and knew her stuff. Also, super affordable! We will definitely be coming here for our future needs."

"This was by far the best, fastest and reasonably priced service I have received in a very long time. Greeted as I walked up to the counter, paperwork took 10 minutes, waited 3-5 minutes for NP to see me, even gave me a discount coupon for script. Do your self a favor and DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ANYWHERE ELSE!!"

"Brandy Van Heyde is wonderful. She listens to you and doesn't rush you. Brandy is a very soft spoken person. Karen in the front office is super nice too. BraVa Health is the best that I have been to. Very reasonably priced. Keep up the great work Brandy. I highly recommend her if you need medical care."
