Dr. Congdon is a very good doctor that cares for the well being of each of his patients. He is a family doctor that also treats pain as well as addiction. He came in the room on my last appointments with a high five and told me he was proud of me and my progress thus far. That, in itself, meant the world to me. I would recommend this doctor to any of my family and friends without hesitation. Great man, great doctor, great facility. Keep on doing what you do......you are saving lives.

This is mainly just a drug clinic for treating opiate dependent people to make money. Lab and staff are nice, but the doctors spend very little time with you and don't seem to care about your individual needs and goals. They pretty much prescribe the max. dose for all patients, not good. I know a lot about opiates and suboxone therapy. And would not recommend them unless you don't mind being treated like another number. Every one is different and suboxone is a very powerful addictive drug. dr

I have been a patient with Dr.congdons office for almost two year's and words could not do justice for all the help and patience the doctors staff and Dr.Congdon have invested in me. They are very careing and the motivation and determination to help me has meant a lot to me. Francis at the front along with all the staff always makes me feel that I am in great capable hands and they are very professional. I will continue to see this practice.

Dr. Congdon & Pat the nurse are genuinely nice, helpful people but this is hands down the WORST run office in medical history. The staff is made up of Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest. Getting someone to answer the phone should be the norm but far more often than not you get a recording then NO CALLBACK. If you have an appointment, the wait time is beyond ridiculous, as in consistently an hour but if you're lucky only 45 minutes. Forget getting a prescription refill faxed to a pharmacy. Go elsewhere!
in Murrells Inlet, SC |
He is my primary care physician. Always able to book an appointment, staff is friendly and courteous. Routine tests are easily given and results/conditions explained clearly. I trust his advice.
