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.

When I was dealing with a serious illness, my Dr. Degnan embraced me with care and kindness. She told me not to linger with situations I can’t change. Focus on living each day to the fullest and not to worry about what is ahead. These words stuck with me and helped me go on. I see myself differently. Life is short make the most out of it. Don’t get stuck on what you can’t change. Her advice… See more

from Hugh in SC January 30, 2024 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

In 2015 I retired from my position of 35 years as a professor. That same year my best friend from graduate school moved to Aiken so that we could share our retirement years together. One of the first things he asked of me was the name of my personal physician. He was shocked when I responded that I had none! He then asked when I had last had a complete physical exam. When I responded that the… See more

from Charmaine in SC January 26, 2024 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

When I see Dr. Degnan, she listens and takes me seriously. I can provide vague complaints ("I'm tired" or "I'm foggy") and she will ask questions to better understand what might be going on. She will suggest basic tests to get more information. She has never dismissed a concern of mine and knows me well enough to be direct, straightforward, and clear. She has… See more

from Ken in SC January 22, 2024 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan

Fortunately I have not had any real health issues however I am very appreciative of how readily available and responsive Dr Degnan and the staff are, and how efficient and on time the operation runs. Whenever I have had a question I am able to reach Dr. Degnan by phone or email or text and it gets answered very quickly. I don't feel like I'm a number waiting in line.

from Zeda in NM January 19, 2024 for Dr. Alyssa M. Degnan
