Specialties

Dr. Cornelius Alston has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

Mrs.

Have been seeing Dr. Cornelius Alston for 8yrs. now. Was very surprised to read that some of his formal patients think of him as a pill pusher. Apparently they have never had continuous pain, or other medical problems, to where it takes months to get an appt. with other Dr.'s in this area. He is definitely a compassionate Dr. spends as much time as necessary with each and every patient. The staff is always pleasant, very little waiting time. I have been to several other Dr's since I moved here, that took the money, did absolutely nothing, and absolutely no compassion at all. By the way, I am not a pill hopper, and not all people that take pain pills, want to, but have to.

If your looking for a Doctor who will write prescriptions for anything and everything you have found him. This Doctor is terrible but his staff is even worse. No returned phone calls, no followup and wants to bilk Medicaid out of extra visits. I have seen him 4 times in 4 months and nothing is wrong with me. He insist ona visit to refill a prescription even if it is an HIV medication. He fixes it so different drugs run out different months. So you have no choice but to return. Everyone in the waiting room is there waiting for a certain or specific narcotic. And they get it. I can not get an anti depressent pre auth form returned to the prescription drug company because this Dr is too busy writing prescriptions for pain pills. I have been off anti depressants for two weeks because of this and this DR does not seem to care at all. If he does not get an office visit he doesnt care. I can not go to the Dr every month just for fun. I do not need any narcotics so it looks like I am going to be finding me a new Dr who cares about patients and keeping them alive, and not just money. I am also reporting this Doctors illegal activities to the state SC medical board as well as SLED for an audit. Some of those freaks in that waiting room, were just pill heads. I mean I m not judging, I am observing and if it is obvious. His own receptionist told me he prescribes her Zanex. I think there should be a rule against that. In any case I will now go to the ER because I feel like my head is going to explode. Dr doesn't return calls and even has it on his voice mail telling patients don't call us we will call you.
