“We were vacationing in Surfside Beach for seven weeks, and while walking our dog, she was spooked by another dog and hit into my knee. I was in terrible pain, so I went to Beach Family and Urgent Care close to where we were staying. They took an x-ray, put a giant splint on my leg, and told me to use the crutches and stay off that leg. Of course, the cost of the reinforcement and crutches was $122. I was able to get an appointment with your practice the next day. When Dr. Merritt reviewed the x-ray and examined my knee, he told me not to use the crutches and do not put the splint back on. Boy, was I happy? He then gave me a cortisone injection, and my knee almost immediately felt better. The next time we are at the beach, and I have a problem, I will contact your practice. Thanks again for promptly getting me the appointment.”

“My initial visit, so the review is based on limited contact. I have had several other surgeries at this Orthopedic facility, and the staff and doctors have all been fantastic. I anticipate the same with Dr. Merritt. He did a thorough exam and am awaiting an MRI to determine the next steps. I may have to get surgery shortly so that I may update at that time. But I feel comfortable having Dr. Merritt treat me for this knee injury.”
– Dennis L.

“Awesome! I messed up my knee while vacationing in MB, developed severe pain, and needed an urgent visit and treatment. My insurance company’s list of providers included OrthoSC, so I called them not knowing what to expect. Although I had never been seen there before, they took me ASAP and provided excellent care. I finished my vacation and flew back home without any trouble and much more comfortable. In short, I received excellent care from a very caring physician and a supportive staff, all on short notice. I’m so grateful for their kindnesses and service!”
– Judy T.
