William N. Boulware, MD, MACP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a board-certified specialist in internal medicine, I use all of my skills and 30 years of experience to best treat current health problems and prevent new ones with an emphasis on individualized primary care. I partner with my patients and care for them with compassion and concern, just as I would for a family member. I hope to keep you out of the hospital, but if you are hospitalized, I admit patients to McLeod Regional Medical Center and the Carolinas Hospital System and provide continuity of care.

My Florence, South Carolina office offers lab services, X-rays, EKGs, stress testing, bone density assessments, Holter monitoring, spirometry, peripheral vascular screening and vision and hearing screening. My concierge-style primary care practice serves the greater Florence area, including Darlington, Hartsville, Marion, Sumter, Dillon and Lake City. I encourage interested patients to call my office to set up a informal meeting to learn more about the advantages of personalized healthcare.

I have been named to the list of Best Doctors in America® 2014.
