Joseph G. Jemsek, MD, FACP, AAHIVS
Infectious Disease Specialist; Lyme Borreliosis and Tick-Borne infection; HIV/AIDS
Joseph G. Jemsek, MD is the namesake and founder of the Jemsek Specialty Clinic of South Carolina. After practicing medicine in Charlotte, North Carolina for over 20 years with the Nalle Clinic, Dr. Jemsek created a specialty infectious disease practice in the year 2000 with the goal of serving individuals with HIV/AIDS as he had done since 1983, in addition to pursuing the practice of general infectious disease.
Over the past 8 years, Dr. Jemsek has also cultivated clinical and research interest in Lyme Borreliosis, commonly referred to as Lyme Disease. Dr. Jemsek prefers the term Lyme Borreliosis Complex (LBC), which he feels better reflects an immune-compromising syndrome affecting multiple organ systems and caused by multiple coexisting infections. In spite of the political barriers which exist in this time, he continues to create and evolve innovative approaches in the treatment of LBC and is in the process of collaborating with other researchers in the development of credentialed treatment protocols.
