• All photo IDs must not be expired when presented for verification of age, parentage/guardianship and/or payment.

• Please bring a photo ID that includes date of birth. Any patient under the age of 17 must have a parent or legal guardian's consent. Photo identification, as well as proof of parentage or guardianship must also be provided by patient, parent, and/or guardian. Examples: Birth certificate (South Carolina long form) or court order of guardianship. If the last names are different on these photo IDs and/or the documentation listed above, a copy of a marriage certificate or divorce papers must be submitted to verify the change. A minor may also obtain a court judicial bypass instead of consent of a legal guardian, but she must provide court documentation.

If a patient is uncertain of the paperwork required, they should consult the office representative when making an appointment.

• Patients with RH negative blood type will need to have an injection of Rhogam. Please bring a copy of your blood type if at all possible. We can send a order to a lab in your area for blood typing to be drawn. Otherwise, you will be required to purchase a self test blood type kit for a $50.00 fee. A patient may have proof of blood type on a Red Cross blood donor card, active military ID, or they can get a copy of a lab report or signed statement from their doctor.
