My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a board-certified specialist in internal medicine, I use all of my skills and 30 years of experience to best treat current health problems and prevent new ones with an emphasis on individualized primary care. I partner with my patients and care for them with compassion and concern, just as I would for a family member. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. I hope to keep you out of the hospital, but if you are hospitalized, I admit patients to McLeod Regional Medical Center and the Carolinas Hospital System and provide continuity of care.  

My Florence, South Carolina office offers lab services, X-rays, EKGs, stress testing, bone density assessments, Holter monitoring, spirometry, peripheral vascular screening and vision and hearing screening. My practice serves the greater Florence area, including Darlington, Hartsville, Marion, Sumter, Dillon and Lake City. I encourage interested patients to call my office to set up an informal meeting to learn more about the advantages of personalized healthcare. I have been named to the list of Best Doctors in America® 2014.

from Pamela in SC March 10, 2020 for William N. Boulware, MD, MACP

Without, one particular story to tell, I have been patient of Dr. William Boulware since the early 90's. When the move to the MDVIP system caused many clients to leave the practice, I weighed the options and decided that moving to another practice would not be an option.

Dr. Boulware is personable in his own way. He has a reserved sense of humor, and he knows my family history… See more
