Josh Visserman, M.D. is a board-certified family medicine physician who specializes in primary and preventative care as well as wound care, specifically chronic and complicated wounds. He enjoys seeing patients of all ages and treats each patient with their goals in mind. The most rewarding part of his day is building relationships with his patients to improve their health while also taking into consideration their quality of life, focusing on lifestyle changes before pursuing medical therapy. He has a particular interest in patients with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, weight management, anxiety, depression, and arthritis.
In addition to his primary care practice, Dr. Visserman has specialty training in wound care and hyperbaric medicine. He is one of the few fellowship-trained wound care physicians in South Carolina. He provides care for diabetic foot wounds, venous and arterial leg ulcers due to swelling and poor blood flow, pressure sores related to paralysis and hospitalizations, post-surgical wounds, traumatic wounds and other atypical wounds. He uses the latest wound care technology including skin substitute grafts, negative pressure wound therapy (WoundVAC), specialized wound care dressings, and in-office wound procedures and biopsies.
Dr. Visserman obtained his medical degree from Medical University of South Carolina where he also completed his family medicine residency. He furthered his medical training at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center completing a fellowship in wound care and hyperbaric medicine where he spent time in the clinic, hospital, and operating room learning to treat complex and complicated wounds.
Dr. Visserman enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. When not in the hospital, he also enjoys Clemson football, spending time on the water, and trying the many restaurants around Charleston. Originally from Canada, he grew up in Fort Mill, South Carolina and attended Clemson University before finding his way to Charleston for his medical education and practice.
