For a SINGLE MOM of four children, I found this place extremely comforting, professional, and reliable ... front staff was ok but the best were the NP and Doctors.. best care we have had and we are on Peachcare, they are not in it for the money.. moved to Savannah, different story down here....

I recently visited with Dr. Sharpe. He was attentive. He answered my questions. The office staff is pleasant. When I left a message, he promptly returned my call. I am very pleased to have him as my doctor. I highly recommend him.

He is always there when I need him. I have Parkston's & when I need help with it all I need to do is call. He's a very good Doctor.

Great Front End Staff, but moved so had to find a new PCP for my children, medical file incomplete.
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
