About Us

Vitality Medical Centers Prolotherapy Doctor – West Columbia, North Augusta, Greenville, North Charleston, and Fort Mill

The skilled providers are carefully selected in order to provide the highest quality care for you. After you are evaluated, we discuss each case in detail as a team. It is during this team discussion where we believe our approach is the best. Instead of having just one provider making a decision about your treatment, we have an entire team conferring, deciding and concurring about the best treatment options available to you. We are constantly asking ourselves, “Is this the treatment that I would want for my family.”
