Re-diagnosed me with Ankylosing Spondylitis, but refused to treat with any form of medication. Basically told me to rub some dirt on it and get over crippling pain, exhaustion, etc.

This place has absolutely no care or compassion for single mothers with auto immune diseases who are struggling to survive without any support for the children’s father. If you are looking for a doctors’ office with compassion, then look elsewhere especially their infusion person Kaitlyn has no heart or compassion. You only care for people with good insurance. When I had federal insurance, I could reschedule on the day of as much as I wanted but now I have Obamacare and you kick me to the curb.

What a joy Dr Edgerton was today! We have relocated to the low country and was referred to him! I was greeted by a friendly staff, I was seen before my appointment time and Dr. Edgerton took the time and listened to all my concerns and issues. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a Rheumatologist.

Dr. Edgerton is amazing, caring and encouraging. I have recommended him to a friend, and they also think he is the best! He is very knowledgeable and fully explains the care path he believes to be right for you. Thanks to his extensive knowledge, I have been able to minimize my meds and lower my pain. I am very satisfied with my care.

Dr. Edgerton is the most considerate doctor I've seen. He is very attentive and actually listens to you! He explains what is going on in terms that I understand. I would recommend him to anyone! He truly cares about us that need him. Also his assistant is very attentive and she also responds to questions fast and thoroughly when I've called or contacted her through the Patient Portal. They are a remarkable team!
