Lady’s Island Internal Medicine is the seventh medical practice in the growing physician network at Beaufort Memorial.  “Our goal with this new practice is to provide greater access to high quality care close to home,” said Derrick. “We have exciting things planned as we reach out to serve the health care needs of the Lady’s Island, St. Helena, Fripp Island, Dataw Island, Harbor Island, and the surrounding communities.”
Consistently named among the “Best Doctors” regionally and nationally by his peers, Dr. Cusumano has a special interest in taking the time to communicate with and educate his patients.  Because of his pharmaceutical background, he is also interested in evaluating and preventing drug interactions, and employing a range of evidence-based medical therapeutics.
“Patients seek medical care in hopes of having a listened-to, focused conversation about their concerns,” said Dr. Cusumano. “It is our goal that this office will help people negotiate the increasingly complex ‘medical maze’ and find support, healing and hope.”
