At the Center for Family Medicine, our physicians and staff are excited about the opportunity to help you improve your health. We are passionate about providing whole-person care. We know that you are more than your diagnosis or ailment, and we look forward to the opportunity to build lasting relationships with you.

In family medicine, we specialize in providing high quality care to people of all ages and genders. Most of our physicians deliver babies, too. As an academic center, you can be confident that you are receiving the highest quality care according to the most current guidelines and recommendations. This practice is a Family Medicine residency program, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The Center for Family Medicine is the heart of the Greenville Health System Family Medicine Residency program. Resident physicians have completed medical school and are fully licensed to practice in the state of South Carolina, and have chosen additional training to specialize in Family Medicine.

Policies

Appointments

To reduce wait times, we see patients by appointment only. For acute illnesses, we can provide same-day appointments. Our phone lines are open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Our experienced staff is available to answer your medical questions. All calls made before 4 p.m. will be addressed the same business day.

Missed Appointments

If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify our office at least 24 hours in advance.

After Hours

If you think you are having an emergency, please call 911. If you need to speak with one of our physicians, call the main line (455-7800). The answering service will contact the physician on call.

Hospital Coverage

If you need to be hospitalized, we have resident physicians at the GHS hospital facility (Greenville Memorial Hospital) around the clock. These doctors specialize in offering immediate, high quality, continuous care to hospitalized patients. Upon discharge, you will be given a follow-up appointment at the Center for Family Medicine.

Nurse Visits

visits with a nurse for immunizations, blood pressure or weight check and Depo-Provera injections are scheduled by appointment.

Prescription Refills

Refill requests should be called in during normal practice hours and typically take up two business days to process. All controlled drug prescriptions require a visit with a provider. For non-controlled medications, renewal requests will be sent to your designated pharmacy, at the discretion of the physician.

Insurance and Payment Policy

CFM is an accredited Family Medicine residency program. Our office visits are billed to your insurance provider as an outpatient facility for GHS. Our faculty oversees the residents in our program and can bill a professional fee for that oversight of residents. This duty creates what is known as a split bill. As a patient you may see two bills, one from University Medical Group for the professional fee and one from GHS for the facility bill.

Medicare and Medicaid have provisions in their billing structure to allow payment of these oversight faculty professional charges. Many private insurance payers do not. If you have questions about whether your private insurance would cover your visit to CFM, please contact your insurance company for guidance on your coverage guidelines.

We will file your insurance for you. Insurance copayments and other monies owed are expected at the time of service, unless previous payment arrangements have been made. All co-payments are expected during the check-in process. We accept credit cards, checks and cash.

Our practice is a NCQA Recognized Patient-Centered Medical Home!

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Recognition Programs assess whether clinicians and practices support the delivery of high-quality care and are built on evidence-based, nationally recognized clinical standards of care.
