At the Abbeville Area Healthcare Center, it’s our goal to provide our patients with the most personalized, compassionate care possible that is often missing in large practices. We specialize in providing for the healthcare needs of the whole family, from infancy to the later stages of life, including nursing home care.
Our new Center now houses Abbeville Internal Medicine, Abbeville Surgical, Abbeville Diabetes Care, Family Medicine Associates and Behavioral Health.
We have a team of Physicians, Certified Physician Assistants, a Certified Nurse Practitioner, a General Surgeon, and Behavioral Health and Diabetes Care professionals who provide a wide array of services all under one roof.
When you make the Abbeville Area Healthcare Center your “medical home,” you will experience a high level of comfort, communication and trust with your caregiver. We know you by name. For you, that means peace of mind and knowing that the care you need is right here in Abbeville.

What to Bring for Your Appointment...
To ensure we are able to provide you with quality care and secure the appropriate insurance reimbursement on your behalf, please be sure to bring the following to every appointment:
- insurance cards
- photo ID
- current medication list or actual medicine bottles
Medicare and most other insurance plans are accepted, and we will be glad to file claims on your behalf. All co-pay, co-insurance, deductible or outstanding balances must be paid at the time of service. We offer non-insured, self-pay discount if full payment is made at the time of service.
After Hours Care...
Our after hours and weekend call is provided by our staff physicians who are at home with their families. For this reason, we ask that after hour calls be limited to those things which truly need attention at that time, such as minor emergencies. Should you have a true medical emergency, please call 911 instead.
We will be able to advise you whether you should seek ER care or wait until the office is open again. We will also be able to help you if you have a question about over the counter medications or dosing.
We ask that if you have questions about scheduling appointments or chronic medical conditions or issues you have seen the doctor for that you speak with our office during normal business hours. The best solution for this may be to make an appointment to discuss any issues.
Regular medication refills should be requested during normal business hours. In order for your Provider to review your request and ensure that you have your medications in a timely manner, we ask that you call for these refills 3 business days prior to running out of your medication. ABSOLUTELY no pain or controlled medications will be refilled after hours. A request for an antibiotic after hours may not be granted.
