About our practice

At Ballentine Family Medicine, we are partnering with the YMCA to provide Columbia, Irmo and the Midlands community in South Carolina with easy access to quality health care and a healthy lifestyle. For the first time in the Midlands, a family medicine practice and a YMCA are co-located in the same facility.

Our practice features:

  • A shared atrium and classroom space
  • An easy check-in process, with patients taken directly to one of our 12 exam rooms
  • Extended hours three days a week
  • On-site lab draw capability

Because our practice is conveniently located just steps away from a fitness center, our patients enjoy access to community wellness programs, support groups, group exercise classes, health screenings and educational programs. For more information about the YMCA, visit ColumbiaYMCA.org.

What is a family practice physician?

Family practice physicians are trained to treat the whole person, physically and emotionally. They provide comprehensive medical care to you and your family. Your family physician will get to know you and your medical history to personalize your care.
