Doctors Care is staffed by experienced, dedicated and compassionate medical professionals.
From the start, we have focused on delivering exceptional care with an uncompromising commitment to our patients.

Doctors Care opened in 1981 as the first minor emergency medical center in Columbia, S.C., offering urgent and family care services with flexible evening and weekend hours. Today we grown to a network of more than 50 locations across South Carolina, providing timely, convenient health care services. Our team has grown to include 1,100 dedicated health care professionals. We have nearly 200 providers focused on urgent care, family care, occupational medicine and employee wellness. And we serve more than 2,000 employers regionally through our Occupational Medicine services.

All Doctors Care facilities have achieved the prestigious designation of accredited Urgent Care Clinics. The Urgent Care Association of America, a group representing more than 3,200 medical professionals, granted Doctors Care the designation after a stringent review of each of our clinics in South Carolina. The designation assures patients that they can turn to Doctors Care to treat a range of illnesses and injuries and that they can find services such as X-rays and laboratory work on site. This places our clinics among only a fraction of such facilities in the nation to be recognized for the range and quality of services offered.

About our Affiliation with MUSC Health

Doctors Care and MUSC Health have entered into an affiliation to provide patients with increased access to primary care, urgent care, specialty care and emergency care throughout the Lowcountry and Grand Strand regions of South Carolina. Health care professionals at both organizations are committed to working together to ensure an exceptional continuum of care for you and your family. The primary goal of the new affiliation is to help patients to make the best decisions when choosing the most appropriate setting from which to seek medical care. An urgent care center provides same-day, affordable treatment for patients who require care for illnesses like colds and flu or minor injuries that are not life-threatening. The vast network of Doctors Care centers, all of which offer walk-in service, will help MUSC Health decrease unnecessary visits to its emergency rooms and provide patients with an easier transition to specialty services as needed.

The Doctors Care locations included in this affiliation are; Summerville, Dorchester Road, Charleston West, West Ashley, Northwoods, James Island, Mount Pleasant, Ivy Hall, Moncks Corner, and Clements Ferry.
