Review of Dr. Luis

- in Columbia, SC |

Dr. Luis removed my son’s perforated appendix on June 22. He was friendly and professional while explaining the procedure to my 19 year old son and us (his parents). After the surgery he came out to the waiting room to explain the results and personally walked us back to see him in post-op for a few minutes before he was taken to a room. We were very pleased with his care, compassion and expertise. My son had no complications after the surgery and is healing well.

Review of Dr. Watson

-Columbia, SC |

I Highly recommend Dr Watson. He performed emergency surgery on me and he was incredible. His quiet personality made me more calm. He explains everything thoroughly and truly cares for his patients. I could go on and on about him. He was incredible! Best bedside manners, Keeps family informed and I was truly blessed to have him as my surgeon!

Review of Dr. Watson

- in Columbia, SC |

Dr. Watson performed an emergency debridement on my husband at Palmetto Health Richland to eradicate a dangerous diabetic infection in his abdomen. He thoroughly explained the procedure and put us at ease. His first priority was helping my husband. He even called my mother in law out of town and explained everything to her. Professional. capable, excellent communication skills. #grateful

Review of Dr. Luis

-Sc |

My father saw this so called ER trauma physcian at palmetto health Richland memorial hospital Columbia SC you should request another physcian. We spent hours waiting on him and he never showed. No communication skills and so willing to just to let my dad die versus having to work. I work in the medical profession ct technologist and this man is only working for a check ... no compassion truly sad

Review of Whitney Buckland

- in Lexington, SC |

Whitney is incredible as a physician. She is always comforting and listens to you. I really wish she would get her MD and practice family medicine on her own. She is the only physician I like to go see when I'm sick.
