At OptimalSelf MD, the Drs Birchenough and their team believe in creating long-term relationships with their patients to help them look and feel their best. Every day, we strive to do our best to help our patients to bring out their best selves.  We are passionate about what we do, and how we deliver care.

Our staff are courteous, responsive and knowledgeable. They are indispensable in extending and supplementing treatments initiated by the Drs. Whether it is something like an IV drip treatment, customized supplement program, facial peel, or postoperative healing questions, they will be available to take care of you.

We will keep in contact with patients before, during and after their treatments. Also, through regular seminars, blog posts, events, and social media, we will keep the Upstate informed about the latest health recommendations and aesthetic modalities.

Our downtown space is clean, modern discreetly located, and within walking distance of all Greenville has to offer. For our out-of-town patients, we are right in the middle of downtown near all the best hotels and restaurants. By offering evening and weekend hours and even home visits by special arrangement, we can accommodate even the busiest patient’s schedule. The Pelham office in Greer is close to the Interstate 85 and across the street from Pelham Medical Center, making it easily accessible from Spartanburg, Greer, and East Greenville neighborhoods as well as those coming from out of town.
