Health First is an incredible clinic! If I lived in the area I would make them my primary care doctors office. WHY you say?? If I ever have to wait it is no longer than 5 minutes, everyone is friendly and helpful, top rate equipment to do what ever tests they need right there (even x-ray) and so much more. When I was there recently both of my children were really sick and we went in on a Sunday morning after being up all night. The doctor that stepped in happened to be the owner of three clinics (Charleston, North Charleston and Summerville). WOW! I thought...he is willing to jump in and get his hands dirty? Not only was he willing it was obvious that it was his heart to work with the patients. He not only treated my girls but took the time to give me valuable wisdom on treating my children when they are sick. He went on to say who he meets with his staff at each clinic at length going over each case to make sure they are giving every patient the best care. WOW! I would love to have him open a clinic like this in Rock Hill. Did I mention that this is a Christian based clinic? There is always Christian music playing. They even have prayer request cards at the front desk if you care to share. The way health care is going today it is a huge blessing to have a place like this you can go and trust you are going to be taken care of!!!

DO NOT GO HERE!! I took my son here twice when he was sick with a stomach virus. The doctor told me to give him some drink called BANa and not to feed him or give him sugar for 24 hrs. I followed his directions and later that night he

First off, let me say that Henry Spradlin is the best thing this practice has going for it. He's a great guy; he's good at what he does; and he treats you as an intellictual equal.\r

However, the rest of the staff is only interested in

Health First has really gone out of their way for me and my family. Several years ago I went to HF when half of my face had suddenly been paralyzed. I was triaged immediately and saw a doctor within less than 15 minutes, even though it turns out I had Bells Palsy, a fairly minor condition that usually goes away by itself. I can't imagine that at any other urgent care facility. At the one I used to go to, they didn't even bother to triage and I would have still been waiting 2 hours later.

I also use HF for primary care. After the ENT and allergy doctor couldn't be bothered to help my husband with his allergies after allergy shots had failed, Dr. Machado kept working with him until a combination of medicines was found that made him healthy. My only regret is that Doctor Todd left so that I have to send my newborn elsewhere for pediatric care.

As for the "Christian Rock" the last reviewer talked about, as my Indian and Hindu friend says, almost anytime you go to a Hindu business there is Hindu religious music playing. Most of us don't understand Indian Languages so we don't mention. It is a private business so it is there business what they play, and HF is obviously in high demand or they wouldn't have opened a second facility in Summerville

Pros: quick and quality; patient triage is immediate

Cons: They don't have privileges at any hospital except Trident

We went to treat one thing and they pretty much dismissed the issue which was serious enough to seek treatment for. They wanted to treat something else minor they found that wouldn't make a lot of sense to be related. We had serious reactions to prescribed meds and their response was "I don't know", simply told us to stop taking it and gave a few shots to stop very serious reactions - which led to even more serious reactions that put us in the ER. No follow up appointment was scheduled. We were just sent on our way. You should be aware it is a "faith based clinic" with blaring Christian rock in each room. Why do you have to make it religious to do Good Works. Aren't Good Works alone more that enough? Not recommended. Unless you are on a budget and must risk you health for affordable doctors care.
