I would highly recommend Dr. Shilpesh Patel for your internist and cardiologist. He is one of the few doctors who practices both specialties so I can use him for my primary care and also for my cardiologist. He saved my life 10 years ago when I was having a heart attack. And now he is treating my diabetes , my high cholesterol, my high blood pressure, my arthritis and even my anxiety. I feel blessed to have him as my doctor and have never felt better about my health.

Dr. S Patel is the smartest physician that I have found. He trained at Johns Hopkins and Harvard and really knows his stuff. He takes time to explain my conditions and never seems in a rush. I feel he has improved my health immensely and gave me more years to live. You can’t ask for more from your doctor.

Dr. Shilpesh Patel is one of the best physicians I have ever come across. I had very difficult to control diabetes and high blood pressure that several other doctors could not control properly. Dr. S Patel had my conditions under excellent control within a matter of 3 months. He explains things very well and truly cares about my well being. He is the “go-to-doctor” in the region for patients with difficult and challenging medical problems.

Probably THE ABSOLUTE WORST medical experience I've had in my over 40 years. I Went there for a horrible sore throat in the summer of 2015 (It's April 2016 now, and I'm still dealing with this nightmare) and was diagnosed with strep throat. I was given 10 days worth of antibiotics and was told to take them immediately after leaving, which I did. I was then told I'd get a call the next day with the lab results. Next day came and just before 5 o'clock, after not having received a call all day, I called them to find out the results. I was told they weren't aware of any results and they'd call me Monday. Monday came and went...same thing. Called them at 5 o'clock and they said they'd call me Tuesday. Tuesday, same story....they finally said they'd call me by the end of the week. (HUH? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE NEXT DAY?) I could have rec'd the same garbage diagnosis from the guy that mows my lawn, actually...wow

Piedmont Family Practice at Tega Cay
Overpriced visits, 200.00 for 20 min consultation then forces you to get 170.00 drug test or refuses to write you a prescription. Avoid this place at all cost.

My wife attempted to stop in for urgent care at Piedmont Urgent Care-Baxter this evening and was turned away because they said "they couldn't help her type of pain there" and saying they didn't have the type of pain meds she needed. All I can say is I'm absolutely furious because they were implying essentially she was there for some kind of pain meds, which she hasn't had prescribed in years, maybe coming out of surgery years ago. She ended up there by accident because in reality she was disoriented from what she was going through and trying to drive to CMC on Gold Hill Road.They didn't even check her vitals, heart rate, blood pressure, nothing. Basically sent her on hey way, didn't bother to see what exactly might be going on. In reality she's had to deal with multiple health issues over the years which she was pretty up front with them about and was real clear she had no interest in pain meds, which she had to state after they accused her of coming in there for such.Sad, sad day when patients with real medical need are pre-judged and turned away from basic care. This is not an urgent care facility and I do hope all my friends in Baxter village (we're in Indian Land) see this message and never go here. Spend the extra 5 minutes and drive down there road to Gold Hill CMC or find another Practioner. Appalled at the way the treated my wife and unfortunate I wasn't there to provide my feedback first hand.

Shiland Family Medicine
I had a conflict with the front desk woman because she told me not to have an attitude with her because someone gave me an appointment with Dr. Hatchel but told me it was with Dr. Pope...and then stared me down. I was frustrated, yet respectful. Upon leaving under her stare, I told her that the reason for my attitude was because of her stare..and to have a beautiful day. She yelled at me a few things as the office manager had her calm down, but my favorite was, "She needs to be removed from this practice." IN FRONT OF ALL THE PAITIENTS. I talked to the office manager twice with my frustraton and said that I would like to hear from my doctor of 8 years, and that I would be leaving the practice because I could not agsin face that woman at the counter.Today, my family of 5 has been removed from their practice...with no signature! Can someone explain why my adult daughter must find another doctor? Or my husband? Are the 17 and 12 year old at fault for me refusing to be disrespected?

This office has a very rude call center. I called to make an appointment for a calf/hamstring strain and was told that no new issues at beginning of the day even though this has been done for me before because of my work schedule. I then tried to call the referral line to get a recommendation for a different doctor practice(ortho) and that lady was even ruder than the first operator! I was trying to ask her not only for a referral but how to appropriately fill a survey out(survey is on their website.) She said you will need to talk to scheduling. WHY??? Can this person not help me fill out a survey properly to make sure it gets to someone who can address the issues I have? Then she transferred me in the middle of my next sentence which was "Can you put me through to someone who will recommend to me another practice since I have asked you twice now and you won't? I plan on letting EVERYONE know how I was treated by your office call center and ask them to reconsider using your office.

Dr. Gisele J Girault, MD
Dr. Girault has no bedside manner ! Her team is NOT understanding to patients with chronic pain. Also, she does NOT know how to give epidurals. Stay away from this so called pain management doctor. Her office put erroneous data in my medical record. Example, "nacarotic seeking behaviors", Dr Girault has been reprimanded by the medical board in 2 different states for administering drugs to herself. Now who has nacarotic seeking behavior. Correction, I wanted a spine stimulator NOT narcotics ! This was not included in my medical documentation with her office. Stay away frm his practice !!!!!
Tips & Advices
Scoliosis is a disorder where the spine curves sideways. Most people develop the condition during the growth spurt before puberty. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and most cases are mild, but the rare severe instances can disable a person.
Orthopedic surgeons attend four years of medical school, then four to five years of orthopedic residency in a hospital. They must also be licensed and certified in orthopedic surgery by the state in which they practice.
The terms "orthopedic doctor" and "orthopedic surgeon" refer to the same profession. Related specialties include podiatrist, a doctor who works with the bones, tendons and ligaments in the feet, and a sports medicine physician, a doctor specially trained to treat athletes.
The cost of a visit to an orthopedic surgeon depends on the type of tests ordered and treatment given. For example, an MRI costs $500-$1,300. An initial consultation costs $100- $500, while anesthesia for a procedure generally ranges from $2,000-$4,000. Overall, an orthopedic surgery can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.
During a consultation or first appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, the practitioner will ask the patient a variety of questions to understand the situation. The surgeon might ask about the patient's pain levels, medical history, and any prior injuries. Then, the surgeon will administer a physical exam and possibly schedule tests to better understand the problem. Possible tests include a stress test, x-ray, or MRI.
