About

Bio

After residency in Indiana, I worked in Tuscaloos, AL with the University as Clinical Professor in Family Practice program as well as with the county health department. I moved to Tennessee where I went into solo OB/GYN practice then to SC where I am in private solo practice here. I love being in a small town and contributing to the community. The office is recently moved into a newly remodeled location. The most up to date quality services and compassionate care is our aim at Advanced Wellness Solutions.
