If you need emergency assistance, contact our on call staff person at 803-760-2901 or leave a message at 803-779-7257. Messages will be checked several times daily.
We will be open for emergency services on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10AM until 1PM. Other hours may be arranged by appointment only.
