You are family there. I hate medical visits but I never cringe to go see them there. They never cringe to see me. I tell everyone about them. The horses and blueberry picking don't hurt either ... just glad to have someone who cares! And remembers me. As a person. Not a chart. 

What can we say....we went from being patients of Kathy to being patients of her wonderful daughter, she is so thorough, so patient if we have alot of questions or concerns and she will go out of her way to get you whatever help you need,with medications or if you need a referal. I'm so thankful and proud to tell friends and family where my physician is guys are the best,God bless you all!!!! Best in the county!!!!

I live part time 1.5 hours away from Marion Wellness and Disease Management. It is worth the drive to come here and be treated.

"The BEST of the BEST". We couldn't have been more lucky to have found them 10 years ago when we moved up from Myrtle Beach. Love 'em both!

I’ve been treated at this practice for 10 years and I’ve never had a negative experience. All staff members are courteous and professional. Plus, staff has a wealth of medical experience. I recommend Marion Wellness to my friends and family.

I am always met with professionalism and compassion. They are exceptional, knowledgeable providers! Thank you!

Kathleen and LeAnne are awesome! They do a great job at treating the whole patient.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the folks at Marion Wellness & Disease Management!! Everyone at that office is amazing - the whole staff! When you call in, you get a helpful, friendly voice. When they "take you back" you have listening, caring folks attending to you. When you have a medical concern it's not just a 2 minute visit with a "take this and call us if you don't improve." You get thoughtful, intelligent questions to get to the source of your problem and then you get SOLUTIONS!!
