Patients Love Us!

Grand Strand Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine is a physician office dedicated to the medical care of children and adolescents. 

Grand Strand Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine PA now offers telehealth appointments!

As we continue to monitor the current medical environment regarding the prevention of COVID-19, we at Grand Strand Pediatrics would like to offer a couple of updates.

In an effort to continue to provide care for our patients while also limiting exposure, Grand Strand Pediatrics is excited to introduce telehealth visits starting immediately.

As we try to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 we want to make sure all our patients and families know we are here and available to them. 

If you are interested in a Telehealth visit, please call our office to schedule an appointment.  Before calling please read the attached information flyer as this provides vital information to make sure your telehealth visit goes smoothly.

Some visit types will not qualify for telehealth and will still require an in office appointment.  Also, your provider may need you to bring your child to the office to complete the visit that was stated on Telehealth.

At this time we will continue to offer check-ups and immunization visits.  Our offices will limit office visits to only well check-ups in the morning and only sick/acute visits in the afternoon.

While in the office you will notice that our staff will be wearing masks during all visits.  You and your child may also be asked to wear a mask while in the office.

We will continue to ask you to check in by phone when you arrive and remain in your vehicles until a nurse instructs you to come into the office.  Please DO NOT come into the office unless instructed.

Our staff would also like to send a huge thanks to everyone over the last few weeks.  We all appreciate your patience and kind words. This is a stressful time for everyone and your cooperation with our new policies have made things run smoothly.  Please continue to understand this is just as new to us as it is to you. We will continue to do our best to take care of our patients while understanding the need for precaution.

To better serve the Grand Strand community and our patients, we will enact some temporary office policies.  These are to aid us in providing both routine care as well as sick care for our patients and minimize the potential spread of disease.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

All routine visits will be clustered in the early morning to enable the healthy children to be out of the office before the sick patients arrive.  You may also be asked to exit the offices in a different manner than you have previously. If you have a scheduled appointment please be patient as our staff methodically works on rescheduling.

We ask that all families limit the number of accompanying individuals who come to the office with their child to ONE.  We ask if possibly that individual is between the ages of 18-60, but we understand that this may not be realistic for every family. 

When you call for an appointment you may be asked more questions than you are accustomed and may be directed to a nurse for further triage.  We may further ask that you wait in your vehicle after check in instead of in the waiting area.

At this time Grand Strand Pediatrics does not have testing capabilities for COVID-19.

If you or your child have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (Fever, Dry Cough) and/or have come in contact with an individual suspected to have COVID-19, we ask that you utilize the MUSC or McLeod Telehealth Hotline for screening.  See the following Links.

We ask that you please be patient with our Staff.  Our goal is to provide as much care to our patients as possible.  You may experience longer than normal delays in prescription refill response as well as return time for phone messages as we experience high patient and call volumes. 

If you have general questions regarding COVID-19 here are some trustworthy sites that may answer many of your questions.

Welcome to Grand Strand Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine

We are  open in our Myrtle Beach, Surfside, Little River, and Carolina Forest locations. Surfside and Carolina Forest are now open weekends (8am-11:30am) by appointment only.

We practice a wide group of physicians with a similar philosophy of Pediatrics, taking turns on night & weekend calls and taking over for each other during times away from the office for vacations and continuing medical education. We strive to provide the best healthcare possible for your child(ren) for well care, acute and chronic illnesses. We are on the medical staff at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center and reference the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston, SC when necessitated.

Get in Touch

Patients are seen by appointment only. We appreciate that the Grand Strand is a very popular tourist location. We also understand the difficulty of having an ill child when you are away from home. That is why we welcome tourist to call for appointments if your child needs medical attention.
