Finally, an outstanding physician in the Pawleys Island area but, alas, sadly, Dr. Loader is no longer in Pawleys Island or with Tidelands Health. Once again, they (the Tidelands Hospital conglomerates) ran another outstanding doctor off the rez. Why? Who knows but I'm guessing he cared more about patients than money. Tidelands Health is ruining medical practices all over this part of Low Country.

At first I didn't like what Dr. Loader told me, but it turns out he diagnosed accurately. I took me awhile to come around. Finally, I started acting on what he advised and my condition is much much better. I just wish the wait time was a little shorter.

He will listen to you talk about how you feel and do nothing. My husband had a heart attack last year, and he doesn't even listen to his heart. He relies only on blood work, and you have that done when you get there. Would definitely not recommend him to anyone.

Finally a Dr. who listened and looked at you not a computer or sheet of paper while you were talking to them. He listened and because he did solved a problem that 3 other Dr's couldn't because they were about the $$ and could care less.

Dr. Loader is an excellent doctor. He has great bedside manner and it is easy to tell that he cares about his patients. I have referred all of my family members and friends to him because I know that he will take care of them like they were his own family. His nursing staff is also excellent and very friendly.
