PCMH

Patient Centered Medical Home

We are pleased to announce to you that we have officially been recognized as a Patient Centered Medical Home through The National Committee of Quality Assurance (NCQA). 

What does that mean for you?

The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home standards emphasize the use of systematic, patient-centered, coordinated care that supports access, communication and patient involvement. The PCMH model places an importance on putting the patient’s needs at the forefront of their care.

This recognition basically points to our deep devotion to ensuring that the quality of care we provide our patients stands as our number one priority. Not only will the recognition positively impact our practice and staff, but it will also benefit our patients and community so that everyone can feel confident in the ongoing care being received from our practice. PCMH notes that we stand out in the most critical matters such as our relationships with you, continuity of the care we provide, comprehensiveness of that care, accessibility to us, and quality of our performance.

Annual Wellness Exam

Annual Wellness Exam

Scheduling your child’s Annual Wellness Exam is always simple! Call us directly to schedule your child’s visit: (803) 932-2200.

Well Care Visits

Children grow quickly in the first years of life so we believe that well visits are important for preventative measures. This allows us to ensure that your child is staying healthy and reaching appropriate developmental milestones. We recommend well visits at the 2 week mark as well as the 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 month mark. We also recommend a visit when a child turns 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 10 years old.

Immunizations

We follow the CDC’s vaccination guidelines.

Sick Visits

We offer same day sick appointments for your child, but can’t guarantee that your child will see their usual provider. Call our office and we will help you schedule an appointment so your child can be seen as quick as possible.

After Hours/Weekend Care

We offer acute care on Saturdays from 8:00am to 12:00pm. We share an on call schedule with Ballentine Pediatrics. 

You should always call our main office number to reach for after hours or weekend care. We are available for Saturday sick appointments beginning at 8:00am until around noon. The appointments are offered at the office of the doctor on call. You will be directed to the correct office when you call for an appointment.

We reserve the right to assign a $25.00 charge for after hours phone calls. We are sure you consider the information you receive after hours to be valuable and worth that expense. Please note that many of your insurance companies provide you with free nursing advice so you may want to call them first. However, if you use our services we will ask that you pay for them.

Lactation Counseling

Our nurse practitioner, Julie Edwards APRN-CLC, is available for lactation counseling appointments to guide and support breastfeeding mothers and babies. Julie is able to provide clinical breastfeeding knowledge as well as information that aligns with the CDC’s breastfeeding recommendations.
