My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have enjoyed practicing internal medicine in the greater Florence and Pee Dee areas of South Carolina for over 30 years now. I love what I do and enjoy the relationships I have been able to form with my patients and their families over the years.

The MDVIP model of personalized healthcare, often compared to concierge healthcare, has enabled me to spend more time with my patients and offer timely appointments, including same-day visits when needed. As a private doctor, I am also able to make house calls for my home-bound patients and be available during hospitalizations. I still admit and care for my patients at McLeod Regional Medical Center and the Carolinas Hospital System. This is rare in today's healthcare environment and what makes my practice so unique.

As a primary care physician, my goal is to prevent disease through wellness care and to manage complex chronic health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, liver disease and lung disease when they are present. I strive for all of my patients to enjoy healthy and happy lives.

In addition to being board certified in internal medicine, I am a certified hypertension specialist and enjoy the challenges of treating complex and resistant cases of hypertension (high blood pressure). I have taken special training in adult echocardiography and have been certified by the American Society of Echocardiography as a testamur in echocardiography. This knowledge also helps me to better manage complicated cases of cardiovascular disease.

As a lifelong student, I have placed an emphasis on medical treatment based on current science and clinical trials and continue to study and read medical literature to stay abreast of current medical knowledge. I was valedictorian at the Medical University of South Carolina and went on to complete internal medicine training at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. I have been named to the list of Best Doctors in America® for
500

from Phil in SC March 11, 2020 for Steven Ross, MD, FACP, FAHA

I went in for a routine physical a few years ago. While they were testing me, they recognized I wasn't getting enough blood flow in my left carotid artery. Dr. Ross immediately sent me to a vascular surgeon who confirmed the prognosis (90 % blockage in left side, 100 % in right side. Shortly thereafter, the surgeon did carotid surgery to fix the problem. Kudos to Dr. Ross. Forever greatful.… See more

from Bill in SC March 11, 2020 for Steven Ross, MD, FACP, FAHA

Prior to "MDVIP" I had an occasion where I was feeling weak and disoriented. I called Dr Ross's office and made an appointment for that morning. My wife and son-in-law had to use a wheel chair to get me from the car to the office where I was immediately taken to a treatment room and a blood test was ordered, the results of which indicated a hemoglobin level of 7. Dr. Ross was… See more

I… See more
