Staff and PA were wonderful! While vacationing at Holden Beach I did not heed the warnings of SPF in higher than normal doses, ended up with sunPoisoning with my eyes swollen shut. Again they were wonderful checking me out thoroughly. Hope I never need to seal medical attention again but if I do, this is the place.

The staff there is wonderful, caring and make what could be a grudgingly difficult experience as painless a possible. They are all totally professional while being very personable and relatable at the same time. I'm so very happy to have switch my family over to this practice.

Great experience 4 times now! Always helpful and kind. Have never waited more than 20 minutes and mostly faster. So glad to have found a new medical office that provides a caring environment with knowledgeable staff.!
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.
