I started using a concierge doctor 15 years ago. It is truly an amazing concept and so worthwhile for the patient. When I moved to Charleston 8 years ago, I sought out a concierge doctor and found Dr. Fairey. He's an amazing physician and one of the most ethical men I've ever met. I see him as my doctor and also as my friend and trust in him 100. He's a brilliant doctor and… See more

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Fairey
Today is my 75th birthday! I have been blessed to have good health throughout my life except for a few issues along the way. Those issues were discovered by Dr. Fairey and action was taken to get me in the right healthful direction again. Because of that, I am very appreciative of Dr. Fairey and his expertise. He is smart, easy to be with, and very kind. Thanks Dr. Fairey!
Dr. Fairey has been a welcomed change to our traditional healthcare experiences. He is caring, extremely competent, and responsive.
He has identified and helped us deal effectively with numerous health issues.
We feel very blessed to have him as our primary care physician.
My husband and I moved to SC in early retirement (partial retirement). We had struggled in past to get appointments and long wait times to see our doctors. Dr. Fairey was highly recommended by a friend. It was a game changer for us. We get to see Dr. Fairey immediately. He is always there for a phone call or question regarding a health issue. He quickly addresses our responses and health… See more
I moved to the Charleston area in 2001. I had health issues with my auto immune disease. I started having severe health issues and a friend led me to Dr. Strait Fairey. I realize now that perhaps my unexplained move was inspired by finding a great doctor who could help me navigate my health and therefore my life!
Dr. Fairey has been with me every step of the way. Listening,… See more
I value my personal relationship with Dr. Fairey more than I can express. I used to go to him before he went with MDvip in 2007, but did not follow at that time, as I was in good health and didn't think I needed to join. Then, I had a bad experience with the doctor I went to after that. She didn't take my complaints (for 3 years) seriously about a condition in my ear, and didn… See more
Dr. Fairey is a caring, experienced, competent, and responsive physician.
We are very fortunate to have him as our primary doctor.
The best primary care Doctor I've ever had and I've had many. Dr. Fairey is as rare as my illness. You will never find a physician who listens and cares for his patients like this man. He's kind. Humble for someone of his intelligence and I can't say enough about him or his office team.
Dr Fairey was also Mom and Dad's doctor. When Dad was stricken by Alzheimer's Disease, Strait is the one we turned to when we needed help convincing Dad it was time to stop driving. Later when it came time for Dad to leave home to go into a Memory Care unit, Strait helped get Dad to go. After he'd been in Memory Care for over a year, he suddenly started having trouble holding… See more
