We just want to thank all of our patients, referring providers, and our community for bearing with us during this most difficult and unprecedented time in our infectious diseases' careers. Our providers and staff have been spread thin since COVID emerged, spending almost 100% of their time treating the severely ill in our community hospitals up and down the coast of South Carolina. We are doing our best to get back in the office as quickly as possible. Please help us get there quicker by getting vaccinated. Thank you for your patience.
