Patient Comments (7)
in Mt. Pleasant |
She's a good listener. And asks thorough questions. She never acts like she's in a hurry. And she had been a wonderful primary care doctor to me for many years.

My experience with Dr Vandegrift has always been excellent. Unfortunately there have been times I have felt forgotten by ancillary staff. In addition when requesting refills it may take repeated requests by my pharmacist. I have recommended her to others who have been more than satisfied too.
Mount Pleasant, SC |
too abrupt and seemingly uncaring
in Ridgeville, SC |
My husband and I have been Dr Vandegrift's patients for about 10 years. You may be there for awhile, but it is because she takes the time to listen to her patients. She is a caring doctor. She moved her practice to Daniel Island, which is now an hour away from me. But because I like her so much I decided to stay with her. It is worth the drive.

Has been my family doctor for the last 5+ years.
in Summerville, SC |
I have been seeing Dr. Vandegrift for more than 7 years and I would not see anyone else. She is by far the best doctor I have ever consulted with. I trust her completely with giving the best advice for my health. I always recommend her to family and friends. Not only is she smart and up-to-date on the latest medical recommendations, but her bedside manner is second to none. The practice she is part of had some scheduling problems in the past but have improved significantly over the last year.
in Summerville, SC |
Terribly unorganized. Waited over an hour in the waiting room. Never was called back. Had to leave to go pick up my kids so had to leave without being seen. Office assistant said she typically runs over an hour behind. I don't want a doctor who has no respect for people's time!
