This was my first virtual appointment with Dr. DeBerry; She was every bit as thorough and attentive as if I was there. All labs and notes from other doctors were discussed and she knew exactly what I had been through since my last visit. Took time to answer all my concerns .

Dr Weathers was my VA doc and I followed her to MUSC. I trust her that says it all.

Review for Dr. Weathers

He is an outstanding Physician. He listens to patients and carefully makes a decision. He is very thorough in solving a problem and will reverse judgement if it is in the patient's best interest. I was there when his judgement was better than a Specialist who was anxious to do surgery.

I felt like Dr. Hinson cared more about the task at hand and moving on with the appointment rather than taking time to listen to questions. Even if you do ask her a question, she moves on without telling you what she’s thinking. I’ll be looking for a new provider.

Dr. Van Bakel has been following my heart failure/LVAD condition for over a year. He is the Chuck Norris of the cardiac world. He kicks butt and saves lives while other doctors are golfing on the weekend. If you’re looking for a “hands on” “in the trenches “ doctor, I HIGHLY recommend him.

Dr. Lutas was my primary care physician for a little over 6 years. I have a pretty lengthy diagnosis list and she decided to stop all medications abruptly after missing ONE appointment. Good luck to anyone that decides to go with her as a PCP.

Dr. Loghmanne has got to be the best doctor I’ve ever encountered. He genuinely cares about his patients, his staff is just the same. I shouldn’t have expected anything less. He sets the standard high. Him and his team are fantastic in their field. I never once felt like just another patient.

Renee in North Myrtle Beach, SC - Feb 18 2020

Review for Dr. Kohler

In my opinion, this man has zero ability to talk to his patients in a kind manner. He is rude and inconsiderate. He spoke as if we were completely ignorant simply for asking questions. In this delicate area of medicine, I would think kindness would be something he would strive for.
