Dr. Carolle Jean-Murat, M.D.
Dr. Carolle was born and raised in Haiti to a family of healers, herbalists, midwives and shamans, and was educated in Haiti and the best universities in Mexico, Jamaica, and the US.
After completing her postgraduate training in obstetrics and gynecology in Wisconsin she settled in San Diego in 1982. She soon was regarded as one of the best ob-gyn around—tall and regal, a lone black female among the elite. But her success harbored a secret: when a patient entered her office, Dr. Carolle could quickly and intuitively see the root cause of her patient’s illness, often times knowing she could help the patient without having to put her under the knife. She knew she dared not make these claims aloud. Struggling to fit in with the Western medical paradigm, her intuition and vision were best left unmentioned until she had no choice than to quit.
In 2005, she built the Dr. Carolle’s Wellness and Retreat Center of San Diego, the only place in the world where you can get UNSTUCK by spending as much time as you want – a few hours, one day, or a weekend with her. She helps those who want to quickly discover the root causes of their dis-ease, which usually are hidden emotions. She provides guidance on how to bring them to consciousness, and how to effectively deal with them.
Dr. Carolle continues to provide free intuitive gynecological and primary care to the people of Haiti and undeserved women through Catholic Charities and St. Vincent de Paul Village with Father Joe Carroll, the Volunteers in Medicine-San Diego for the uninsured in El Cajon, and Native-American Health programs. In 1993, Dr. Carolle founded the non-profit organization, Health Through Communications Foundation and its Angels For Haiti Project to provide the undeserved with education, health-care, and hope for the future.

In February 2017 she accepted the position of Chief Medical Director of Health Education Advocacy Leadership Community Health Promotion Center (HCHPC) HEAL, a new and innovative approach to healthcare and its flagship neighborhood Clinic, the first of its kind in the nation.
HCHPC is a low-cost or no-cost, yet easily accessible community clinic that is both patient-centered and resources-oriented. Its goal is to reduce and ultimately eliminate health disparities and inequities. HCHPC will bridge the gap between non-traditional, informal, alternative health services and the “formal” health system with which most patients are familiar. In addition to leading the clinic, Dr. Jean-Murat will lead the development of community-based participatory research, community defined and evidence-based projects (CDEP), and health and safety courses.
As an international motivational speaker, Dr. Carolle brings her message of self-empowerment to women through her award-winning books, podcasts, live workshops and training programs, radio, media appearances and virtual events.
