When my husband and I moved from Washington, DC to South Carolina, we were overwhelmed with the need to find all new doctors. In DC, we had leading experts and services. We researched (I'm a librarian) and first decided on the MDVIP model of care. Then we discovered Dr. William Petty. He's available, operates and excellent office staff and team. Understands that we travel a lot… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
As your personal doctor, I will take the time to cultivate a close doctor-patient relationship so I can help manage and better anticipate your unique healthcare needs. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will feel welcomed by the relaxed, individualized attention you will receive. We will not only treat issues as they arise, but also work together to help you enjoy a healthier, more active life, whether it's spending more time with family and friends or traveling to your heart's desire. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same-or next-day appointments. And I offer the personalized service of house calls by boat as needed.
My primary care practice currently serves Hilton Head, Bluffton, Okatie and surrounding areas. With 17 years as a practicing internist in the Hilton Head community, I enjoy the variety of internal medicine and have particular interests in cardiovascular health, diabetes, hypertension and preventive medicine. I am affiliated with Hilton Head Regional Medical Center and have built relationships with many specialists in the area.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Petty
I don’t have much of a story, except to say, that for the short time that he has been my primary physician, Dr. Petty has been considerate, compassionate and thorough.
I look forward to my relationship growing, over the coming years, and want to express my thanks!
We are new to Hilton Head Island but not to MDVIP, so the transition to Dr. Petty's practice was very smooth for us. We interviewed Dr. Petty and knew he would be just what we were looking for in a new doctor in our new home. Teresa and Chris are wonderful bonuses with their friendly and positive attitudes. Dr. Petty has been very helpful in referring us to other doctors--dentists, eye… See more
Had looked into MDVIP but not joined. On a Sat. while traveling had unexpected medical issue. Called MDVIP, enrolled over the phone, they notified Dr. Petty who called me within one hour, assessed my condition, and arranged for out-patient care at nearby hospital. He then followed up with call to see how I was. Once home, we met and while not life threatening, he suggested surgery that he… See more
Thanks for ordering a CAT Scan that found a tumor in my bladder! Caught it early and got all of it removed.
Your professionalism coupled with your sincere concern for both Mary and I have been a tremendous comfort. Your sensitivity and support after the tragedy of losing Mary have helped me immeasurably. I also want to thank your staff Chris and Teresa for outstanding service and cooperation.
Emily and I would like to acknowledge how much Dr. Petty (and his capable) staff mean to our lifestyle. Being there to answer questions even over the phone or even when you just walk in the door....you're always treated as if you're the only patient in the world. To have this kind of personal, caring, relationship is special and we THANK YOU. Jim and Emily
