When we first arrived in the Columbia area, our military insurance provider appointed Dr. Yousefian to be our primary care doctor. He is simply the best. I've lived in many locations and come in contact with many, many doctors and yet, for me, Dr. Yousefian stands out as one of the top in his profession. He's kind, empathetic, and a patient listener. Even more importantly, he's proven himself highly dedicated to giving my family the best care possible. The nurses and office staff are also exceptional. I had a medical emergency and not only did the doctor continue to reach out to me until my crisis passed, several in the office did as well. Very impressive. The office staff (and I'm talking every single person I've interacted with...) are the kind of people who run and open the door for you when they see you in pain, work tirelessly with your insurance to get you the appointments you need in the quickest time possible and are ever ready to answer any concerns that you may have. I've even been at the practice very late in the evening and yet they didn't rush me out, giving me all the time I needed to make sure all was in order before I left. (A special "shout out" to Judy who reached out to me many times with kindness and concern during my medical crisis and remained unsatisfied until I got all the tests and appointments I needed in an impressively short amount of time. Also a note of gratitude to the receptionist who recently worked and worked with me and the schedule to get my child, with an ear infection, in to see our doctor on short notice. ) I would also like to point out that it is a large practice so, yes, sometimes I encounter a "phone call overload" and can't get through. I can really empathize with the reviewer becoming frustrated with this, but I've learned to simply wait 15 minutes or so and try again. I'll usually then get through to a friendly and apologetic voice. As a final note, I'd also like to add that it's a bit of a drive for me to get to this practice. I have to drive 40 minutes from my home (sometimes many more depending on traffic) to get there, not by choice but because my doctor shifted offices to this location. Even so, the drive, to me, is worth it because I feel that my children's and my health are in good hands and you really can't put a price on that or weigh it against any minor inconvenience.

From Business: Medical Park Pediatrics is accepting new patients from birth through college. Dr. Claytor and Dr. Colby see newborns at all hospitals in the area including: Palmett…
I disagree with the previous former 2-year patient of Palmetto Family Med. Yes there have been changes at the office. Several PA's left as they were offered more money at NE Providence Hospital. Money talks when you have a family to take care of. How do I know this? I saw both of them over my 10 years as a patient here? Mr. Patel is gone as he should be if you had seen him. I never logged a complaint, but refused to see him. His bedside manor was less than fair. My reason for not wanting to see him had nothing to do with his heritage. My husband and I have been going to see Dr. Martin for 10 plus years now. Dr. Ditzler, Dr. Martin, and Dr. Coddingham have all been very approachable and very accommodating to my husbands, my adult children’s needs, and mine. Their staff has been compassionate and has returned my calls, filled out extra insurance documents, and even took on my mentally disabled son when no other doctors in the area would. I'm not sure what the other patients complaints were or why, but my 10 plus years at Palmetto Family Medicine has been a very positive experience. Please do not let that one posting deter you from visiting this office. Their hours of operation are work friendly, the waits are minimal, they’re in network with most insurance companies (as mine keeps changing every year) they have an in house lab that prevents you from having to go to multiple locations to complete one physical. Their office is new, clean and state of the art. I all so Love Dr. Coddingham's husband at Blythewood Dentistry. He's a wonderful dentist. I normally do not post comments on YP.com, but lost some numbers in my IPhone and was looking up theirs to add it back in when I noticed the comments. I felt compelled to write my first ever comment to Palmetto Family Medicine after 10 years of service. Sorry it took me so long. I am a Nurse by degree and work in the medical sales industry. Trust me, if this practice was not great, I wouldn’t allow any of my family members to see them. Especially my mentally retarded adult son who sees Dr. Coddingham with out me being there at times. That’s how much I trust them. Cathy
Dr.David E. Koon jr. He is a very nice DR. and is very good he listens to my questions and answers them so i can understand the answer without the big,long medical terms.When i had a cyst, trigger thumb he took care of it. He gave me 2 choices i can have done 1 a shot in the thumb 2 times or have it taken it out by having Surgery i choose option #2 because my family DR tried the shot and it did not work. He is a young DR.with good manners except when it was time to have my Surgery i looked at him and thought oh no this tiger is going to have a Gamecock under the knife today ha ha . He is a very nice,good Dr i would tell my friends,family if they need a good ORTHOPEDIC Physican/Surgeon he,s the best in my book.
