The evolving presence and commitment of the Regional Medical Center in our community provides great assurance to me that the growing healthcare needs of our communities will be met.”

“The staff at Holly Hill Family Medicine has been a great support and inspiration to me,” he said. “Their love and that of my family and patients has strengthened me over the past thirty years. I greatly miss my staff and all of my patients. I thank Dr. Steven Bull for the privilege of working alongside him these many years. I wish to thank each and every one of my patients for entrusting their healthcare to me over the past three decades; I will miss you all. I also want to thank the staff at the practice, both past and present; I miss them very much.”
Dr. Rhame is board certified in hospice and palliative care medicine and in family medicine by the American Board of Family Medicine. He is a certified hypertension specialist and has served on the board of directors of the South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians.
