Hunter Jochem, CEO of Nextgen Pain & Injury Clinic, has the kind of passion for healthcare rarely seen in the role of Chief Executive. His view is simple he says, “Put the patient first, every single time.” “I’m a businessman, not a doctor, but you don’t have to be a doctor to see the problems with most practices.” He explains. “They stick you in a room for two hours, then they see you for five minutes. Tell me that doesn’t make you angry.”
“When you come see us it’s all about “how can I take care of you” and not only that it’s about “how can it be a fair transaction between both of us?”
At Nextgen Pain & Injury Clinic, we can take care of everything a patient may need. “Its an integrated whole body approach. Meaning you have to look at the entire person, not just a single aspect of that person’s treatment.” He continues, “Most of these places aren’t interested in that, they’re interested in their little niche and then send them to a specialist for the actual care that’s required to make the patient whole.”
“Nextgen is also a leading force in the next wave of clinical care, Concierge Medicine.”
“We’ve come up with a program that is a corporate concierge medicine where a corporation can provide a patient care at rates much more competitively priced that conventional benefits. It’s an honest caring and affordable healthcare option. We’ve focused on creating an environment that feels like a family, without compromising the clinical care and scientific approach to proven methods of recovery.”

P.A. Charles Ortega, HealthCare Provider, has spent the past 20+ years serving patients in family practice across the DFW Metroplex, urgent care and orthopedics. P.A. Ortega gained experience in Orthopedic and regenerative therapies in his medical practice and has first hand knowledge of the recovery to wellness after having played sports competitively. He began his careers as a P.A. in the field of orthopedics and regenerative therapy. Years later he began working in Primary Care after multiple surgeries and regenerative knee therapies.
This experience and subsequent studies expanded his knowledge to include Regenerative Therapies, Stem cell Treatments and PRP (platelet rich plasma).
P.A. Ortega likes the notion that physical therapy is designed to get patients back on their feet, but he focuses on the whole patient, not just the injury. “We have an approach where we go from the psychological aspect of an occupational injury to the physical aspect. We have a counselor onsite to address not only the physical needs, but the emotional needs. If the patient’s life is interrupted and they can’t do what they used to do, it can cause emotional problems or self-confidence issues.”
The team has a goal-oriented approach to fixing things. P.A. Ortega explains that they try to provide treatments we’ve seen supported evidence for and are willing to try other approaches if conservative measures fail. “If we need a specialist, we decide when and if that’s appropriate,” he says. “We try to keep everything under one roof to give the patient a quicker and easier experience of getting back to normal function. That goes for both general medicine and physical therapy.”
P.A. Ortega has always been involved in competitive sports. Circumstances led to bilateral knee injuries during his sports career but have provided him with firsthand experience in orthopedic conditions and sports injuries. He has been in practice for 20+ years gaining focus on occupational, orthopedic and family medicine.
He lives with his wife and two kids in North Dallas. He enjoys spending time his family mountain biking and playing golf.
