I have been a patient with Dr.Ifediora Afulukwe for over twenty years or more, when he was seeing patients in that little white House in Heath Springs. Never had any problem with my visit or with Medication. He is a concern Doctor, it's not all about the money. Because I was seeing him almost a year without insurance and he worked with me, when others turned me around. I thank God for him and his Staff. I can be very difficult at times when it comes to my health and my Mother health. I give Heath Springs Medical Center 5 Stars He will forever be my Doctor, whether it's my breathing or Blood Pressure. I can count on Heath Springs Medical Center In Heath Springs SC Sincerely Cathy McCain- Cloud

Does not return calls promptly (had to leave 4 messages, one a week). Totally disappointed in regard for patients.
