We are prepared to care for you
If you are a patient with an appointment, our office will call you and together we will determine how best to conduct your appointment – in-person, over the phone, by video or rescheduled for a later date.
If you are a patient without an appointment and need care, or if you’re not a patient and need care – please call the office and together we will determine the best course of treatment for you.
Taking care of our community
At Palmetto Health-USC Internal Medicine, we have been taking care of our community for more than 50 years, providing treatment of chronic conditions and acute problems. Throughout this time, our clinic also has served as a major site for educating students and residents of the University of South Carolina School of Medicine and Palmetto Health Richland. As part of Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group, we continue to provide excellent care and a wide expanse of treatment opportunities to meet our patients’ needs.
Patients choosing our practice are cared for by a single primary care resident physician, but benefit from the expertise of our larger team including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, case managers, counselors and patient access specialists.
