"Dr. Tupis and the entire staff treat patients with concern and respect. The atmosphere is such that I know that I have their complete attention. It's refreshing to be treated as a person and not simply a number." - David P.
"Made my experience easy and comfortable." - Barbara B.
"Broke my ankle, thought it was a sprain and walked on it all day. I called around noon because it was swelling so bad, and was put on the schedule for that evening. Shan was absolutely wonderful. So polite and very caring. I didn't actually see a physician the entire time I was under care, but that was fine by me. Shan was very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and I'd recommend her to anyone!" - April E.

"Before moving to the Myrtle Beach area, I did not think one of my biggest issues would be finding an Orthopedic Surgeon (especially considering the demographics of the area) to continue my ongoing therapy.  After going through several options on my own, I discussed my requirements with my general practitioner, who referred me to Coastal Orthopedics.  I made the appointment and was assigned Dr. Tupis.  At my first office visit, he reviewed my medical history and later contacted my previous Surgeon.  Subsequently, I was contacted by his office to make a future appointment for an office visit.  As of this writing, I am completely satisfied with Dr. Tupis for my Orthopedic Surgeon and his supporting staff.  During my recent and first therapy session, I was appreciative that I experienced little pain as he administered the procedure and he kept me informed throughout." - Earl R.
"My heart-felt appreciation to surgeon William L. Mills, MD, the medical orthopedic team,  assistants, nurses and all personnel at the Spine Center, Coastal Orthopedics, Conway Medical Center, in Conway, South Carolina.   Before my laminectomy, I experienced unbearable pain due to a spinal misalignment, herniated disc and pinched nerve from L5 to S1 vertebrae.  I could not find relief from excruciating pain, numbness, tingling and violent cramping down left leg from buttock to bottom of left foot .  Everyday normal standing, walking, sitting and sleeping was painful. April 21, 2016 post surgery results:  Entire left leg pain free! I was at CMC for two nights and sent home with a low dose pain prescription. After surgery, I felt tremendous relief and actual good thoughts about the slight awareness of stitches, 29 tiny staples, short rods and screws under one bandage. For me, a time to celebrate.  I will soon be stepping into my normal life activities. Thanks again, William L. Mills, MD. Fellowship-trained Spine Surgeon and the medical team at CMC. I am also grateful for the superior orthopedic services available and convenient right here, in our Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area. As one advances in age, so does the meaning of having family close by who do not have to travel great distances for grandma's major surgery." - Jeanette T.
"I'm extremely pleased with my hip replacement procedure which was performed by Dr. Ramsey. The procedure was carried ou as Dr. Ramsey had explained that it would, and the entire staff performed their duties in an exemplary fashion." - Michael J.

"I was in such pain on my right side when I had come to see Dr. Alci back in March. I had terrible headaches all the time, dropping things, tingling in my arm, loss of motion on my right side. The pain was so bad I could not stand up straight and would lean to the right side all the time. With the expertise of Dr. Alci I found I had to have ACDF surgery due to disc in my neck pushing on my spine. Surgery was scheduled and Dr. Alci was wonderful at explaining everything to me – the risk factors, the dos and donts before and after surgery. Dr. Alci performed my surgery on May 9th, 2016. When I woke up after it was finished, I could not believe the pain on my right side was gone. I have been able to stand up straight for the first time in years without it hurting. The pain in my hand that I thought was coming from carpal tunnel is no longer there.  Now the pain is just the after surgery pain and pain I feel from muscles not being used in so long. I cannot begin to thank Dr. Alci enough for enabling me to be an active mother again to my very active 2 year old daughter and 5 year old son who is autistic.  Thank you and best of luck in the future." - Melissa N.

"Took a bad fall just 5 days after moving to SC. Everyone from receptionist to Dr. to check was welcoming and informative. I will not hesitate to continue to use this facility for my orthopedic needs." – Laurie Y.
"Dr Ramsey, his staff and the hospital staff could not have provided better care for me. ALL questions and concerns were addressed. I cannot say enough regarding the experience." – Lewis H.

"I've had cause to use several physicians and PAs in the practice. I've been impressed that none of them has ever stood with his/her hand on the door knob while caring for you; there is always time to address any problem I'm experiencing, and most impressive of all, if they don't have an answer they have never failed to recommend one of the partners who DID have the answer resulting in my level of comfort being their most important issue. Admirable!" – Carole D.
