Dr. McCain is Board Certified in Family Medicine after completing her residency at Saint Vincent’s Medical Center in Jacksonville. She currently has privileges at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center where she serves as a patient advocate.

Bret McCain, CEO
The goal and vision for Southern Comfort Health DPC is provision of quality care and a common sense business approach, which is possible with the partnership of her husband, Bret McCain, CEO of Southern Comfort. Mr. McCain is also a native to Fort Pierce and graduate of FSU, and brings more than a decade of business experience as the Vice President and Director of Operations for Universal Signs and Accessories, a locally historic family-held company. He supplements additional roles as a community liaison, volunteering and serving on various public and governmental boards. Both McCains, seeing how Healthcare is rapidly changing into an assembly line of disconnected interactions and burdensome regulations, see opportunity in the trending model of healthcare called Direct Primary Care. They look forward to being part of a change that will have direct impact in people’s lives by reviving medicine’s historical role as a caregiver, patient advocate, personal confidante, and community connection.
