My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

"Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity." Hippocrates
My goal as your private doctor is to provide you with highly personalized healthcare that will effectively treat your current health problems and help to prevent new ones from developing. Practicing good medicine includes a partnership between doctor and patient – a partnership based on mutual trust and respect that is earned, not given. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will be treated as if you are a member of my family in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and I will work with you at each step to assist you with making informed decisions toward achieving your goals. Whether it’s running your first marathon, reducing the use of medication or improving your nutrition, we will work together as a team to help make a happy, healthy future your reality. There are no shortcuts to being healthy, no simple formulas and no "one size fits all" approach when it comes to the well-being of my patients as each of you are wonderfully unique individuals!
With over 17 years of experience practicing in the community, I have relationships with many specialists in the Central Savannah River Area to help with your unique needs and I am affiliated with Aiken Regional Medical Centers. My primary care office is located in Aiken, South Carolina. I am passionate about fitness, exercise and tennis and would welcome the opportunity to exercise with my patients as we reach our health care goals together.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Degnan

from Lydia in SC May 14, 2021 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

My doctor is Alyssa Degnan in Aiken, SC, and am I lucky and grateful to have her.

Let me give you an example of the kind of care you can receive from her. I had a check up, and Dr. Degnan found a mass in my chest that she said could be a potential problem. The following day she called me, and said let's not wait for the mammography folks to call me with an appointment. She and… See more

from Gerald in SC July 31, 2020 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

I have been receiving excellent medical care from Dr. Degnan for over 10 years. However, the environment at her previous practice where I received care was anything but excellent. Dr. Degnan was responsible for the care of over 2500 patients. This number is coupled with the typical scheduling software that allocates 8 minutes per visit. Because Dr. Degnan would take the necessary time to… See more

from Jimmy in SC July 14, 2020 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

Dr. Degnan has been my physician since 2008 and has always provided excellent care in a most friendly and efficient manner. Until last year I was in very good health and never needed more than a quick checkup. In June 2019 I had a brain-stem stroke which left me unable to swallow and with severe balance problems in addition to many other symptoms requiring the services of numerous physicians… See more

from RuthMarie in SC July 7, 2020 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

My husband and I became patients of Dr. Degnan in 2008 when we moved to Aiken. When she became a part of MDVIP, we made the decision to remain a part of her clientele. It has been a very good decision. For instance, while traveling in Egypt, I developed bronchitis. I saw a local doctor and was given an antibiotic, but I did not improve. Communicating in advance with Dr. Degnan found me… See more

from C Denise in SC March 28, 2020 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

Dr. Degnan has been with me through a diabetes diagnosis, severe anxiety and depression. She has always been patient, concerned and attentive to my questions and problems. I truly feel she cares, not just a doctor with a pasted on smile. Sve is genuinely kind.

from Brenda in SC March 27, 2020 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

When my previous primary care provider decided to move out of state, I asked him who he would recommend I transfer my care to; he strongly recommended Dr. Alyssa Degnan. Boy, was he ever correct in his assessment!!! I have been fortunate to be followed by Dr. Degnan for a number of years and I greatly appreciate her honesty, how she makes you feel special, her integrity, and her humor. She… See more

from Cheryl in SC March 20, 2020 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

Dr. Degnan is better than the best. I am 76 years old and in generally good health. About two years ago I was diagnosed with a Cystocele hernia. Dr. Degnan knew exactly the right doctor to refer me to for the repair surgery and wasted no time in securing an appointment for me. As a result of that surgery, it was discovered I have IPMS of the Pancreas. Again no time wasted. She researched… See more

from Nona in SC March 12, 2020 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

Have been in Dr. Degnan's care since she first came to Aiken. Found out quickly that to her I was not just another old woman who had not seen a Dr. in 40 years. She is ALWAYS there for me. I love her dearly because she knows her patients are people and is on top of the problems quickly and she knows her stuff"!

from Sarah in SC March 11, 2020 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

I've been a patient with Dr. Degnan since I moved to this area in 2012. I wasn't in the best health. I have type 2 diabetes, suffer with depression and also had a lot going on with my family. From the first time she came in the room, she took the time to get to know me as a person. She wanted to know what my life was like, how I was doing, not just what was wrong. She's… See more
