They have taken care of me for about 10 years when I have been in SC. Took care of my husband, too, before he passed (it had nothing to do with them) and took care of my daughter when she was visiting and became ill. Overall the care has been very good and the doctor is caring and helpful. He actually listens. He has been patient with payment too, as my out of state insurance seems to have some issues with the local branch it has to go through. The only reason I can't go to this office any more is that I no longer drive and the local buses don't run there.

I love Dr. Stafford and his associates. They have been taking care of my kids for about 8 years. They have never ordered unecesary testing or procedures (nickel and dime you) and take a very hands on approach. They listen to the patient/parent and do not treat you like cattle, which has been my experience at many other practices.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
