It was during these visits we were able to explore the area and fell in love with all that Beaufort and Bluffton had to offer.
The quaint Beaufort downtown and Bluffton old town spoke to us. The breath taking drive over Port Royal Sound made our hearts jump. The decision was easy and I left my former job to start what I feel will be the most compassionate, patient-centric and best pain management center in Beaufort, Bluffton and all of the Low Country.
My vision is simple; do what is right, treat patients as if they were family and use your expert knowledge and skill set to deliver the highest quality care. And this is what we have done.
The product is Southern Coast Specialists. My staff are amazing and will treat everyone that comes through our door with compassion, respect and friendliness.

Symptoms Stingray injuries can be fairly serious depending upon the location of the sting and the amount of venom, barbs, mucous and spine that are left in the wound. Envenomations cause immediate, intense pain at the site of the injury, often described as "the worst pain ever felt.
Swelling and bleeding occurs. Necrosis tissue death and infection are common problems following envenomations. Treatment First aid treatment is the same regardless of the species of stingray.
Deep wounds and wounds to the chest and abdomen need immediate treatment at a medical facility. The wound should be immediately irrigated with fresh, clean water to remove the venom. Ideally, the water should be sterile, but tap water will work.
Saltwater should be used only as a last resort due to the presence of bacteria in seawater. Contrary to folklore, vinegar and urine are not effective treatments for stingray injuries. Manually remove as much foreign material as possible; this will decrease the chance of persistent infection.
Immersion in hot water should not be delayed in order to meticulously remove material, but obvious foreign matter can be quickly extracted.
Immersion in hot water will greatly decrease the pain. The water should be changed frequently to maintain the temperature.
