It is a very comfortable atmosphere at the office. Everyone is very friendly. Charlene is very caring and patient and calming giving the different tests for the wellness exam. It is thorough and Dr. Ramsbottoms explanation of the results are very understandable. He takes time to ask if I have any questions or concerns. The time allowed is more than sufficient an never rushed. I feel very… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
In my personalized healthcare practice, often compared to a concierge medical practice, patients have direct contact with me on my cell phone, home phone and office phone 24 hours a day. This keeps our line of communication uninterrupted at all times, which has resulted in preventing an office visit or ER visit when appropriate. My MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice has given me the time and tools to provide my patients with the individualized care and attention they deserve.
My office is located in the heart of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but I take care of patients from Pawleys Island to St. James Plantation near Southport, North Carolina, better known as the Grand Strand. I am affiliated with Grand Strand Regional Medical Center, and my primary interests, other than wellness and prevention, are focused on treatment for hypertension, diabetes and cholesterol disorders, as well as general adult medicine issues.

I am 76 years old w/ several health issues. My faith in Dr. Ramsbottom could not be greater as to his response, concern immediately to my issues as they acur. I am aMDVIP client due to him. I cannot imagine using anyone else that would be a better healthcare provider.
John and I are more than pleased with the care we receive. Not only is Dr. Ramsbottom our doctor, he is a good friend and confidant. He is a good listener and makes us feel at ease at our appointments. We are able to see him when we need his expertise. He is a great family person, a great friend, and a great doctor. We are so fortunate to be his patients.… See more
My wife and I both are members and both have the same doctor (John G. Ramsbottom, Jr.) and couldn't be more pleased. We are happy for the healthcare we receive and somethng that particularly comes to mind is our ability to contact our doctor during non-office hours or just when he may take a day off. A couple of those times that stick out in my mind is once when I had been discharged… See more
Dr. Ramsbottom was recommended to us in 2007 as a physician and we have never regretted our decision to use him as our primary physician.
He has kept meticulous details of our health and medications and is always open to seeking better medicines for each of us in our striving to maintain general good health.
Always treats us as family and gives personal, individual care as if we… See more
Dr Ramsbottom - and his father before him - have taken care of my children (now grown!) and me for over 30 years. He was my mentor when I quit smoking, just to mention one important thing he helped me with....he's doctored our tummy aches, skin problems, etc....way too many ailments to mention! How fortunate our small town has a doctor with his skills, compassion and empathy. THANK YOU… See more
