Primary Care and Family Care in Rock Hill

Pennington Primary Care in Rock Hill, SC

shares the best of both worlds by combining

modern medical care with old time personal attention


We’re a Direct Primary Care and Family Care practice in Rock Hill, SC. Ultimately, that means we get to spend more time with you without making you jump through the hoops of a traditional medical practice. We love it, our current patients love it, and we think you will too.


You won’t feel rushed through an appointment and there’s never a question you won’t have time to ask. Part of the relationship you’ll build with your doctor is based on your understanding of your care. That’s what we call personal healthcare.


We don’t accept insurance. But get this...most of our patients actually 
save money as a result! As a Pennington Primary Care member, we can help you find the combination of healthcare and health insurance that saves you money and results in better quality service.

Greetings and welcome to your local Direct Primary & Family Care practice. 

Do you know the growing trends in primary care?  Check this out...

If you miss the good old days where your doctor treated you like a respected individual, you’ll be thrilled to join Pennington Primary Care. We view the patient-physician relationship as being made up of a team of equals with a single focus to help you reach your healthcare goals.

Our intention for direct primary care in Rock Hill is for health care decisions to be made by the patient and the doctor. A solid doctor patient relationship is indispensable to our practice. As the methods of health care delivery have progressed, obstacles have interfered with the doctor patient relationship and have shifted decisions away from the doctor and patient to outside parties and middle men. The HMOs, insurance companies and hospital systems have gradually inserted themselves between the doctor and the patient. Inadvertently, this evolution has resulted in increased costs, distracted physicians and deprived the patient of choices for their own health care.

A Direct Primary Care or Family Care practice is the solution. By removing the third parties as much as possible, comprehensive and truly patient-focused primary health care is affordable, clear, and confidential. We do not regularly bill insurance or third party providers. Participation with insurance plans substantially increases the overhead for a primary care physician or medical clinic, which in turn is passed on to the patient. We have eliminated that overhead expense and pass the savings directly on to our members.


We’re diligently working to change the face of family medicine in Rock Hill to one that is uniquely focused on the patient.

As a family doctor, we have noble ambitions at Pennington Primary Care, all of which revolve around giving you the most individualized care imaginable.   


At Pennington Primary and Family Care practice in Rock Hill, SC, we desire to see fewer patients in the name of high-end medical care. We believe the best medical treatment comes from one-on-one interaction, so we’re eliminating the middle man and inviting you into our family.......WELCOME!

Direct Primary Care

The future of Primary care and Family care...

Meet Our Physician

Dr. Amanda Pennington

Dr. Amanda Pennington has been practicing for 28 years. She received her Doctor of Medicine degree from the Medical University of South Carolina College of Medicine in 1991 and completed a Family Medicine residency at Wake Forest/Bowman Gray School of Medicine. She is Board Certified in Family Medicine.


Personalized care tailored to your comfort level.

We consult with our patients to develop a personalized lifestyle program that promotes optimal health. We become attuned to your needs rather than only treating symptoms with medications.

A physician who knows your story inside and out.

When we drop the current model and health care system and go back to a one on one relationship between the doctor and patient something wonderful happens. The physician can truly get to know each patient and their specific health and wellness needs. The DPC model allows the family care physicians the time to get to know the patients, to do an in depth review of a patient’s situation, and then to diagnose conditions. We have all the advantages of modern technology without the frustrations of the current third party influencers.

The knowledge that you are one of a limited number of patients that the physician is giving their attention to.

As your Rock Hill primary care physician, we get to know a wide range of members from our community. One of the best benefits of membership with our practice is that you are an individual and not just a number. We limit our patient membership so we can focus on YOU.

Same-day/Next-day scheduling with little to no waits and extended visits.

Our visits are 2 to 3 times the length of traditional primary care office visits. You can get a same day or next day appointment with a doctor who already knows you. The average wait time is five minutes or less. (WOW!)

Quality time with your doctor; ask all the questions you want – we actually want you to!

As a Family doctor we focus on treating the whole person. Our intention is to address the sources of your health and wellness concerns.

Direct communications, You get your doctor’s mobile number and email address.

Gone are the days of patient portals and speaking to receptionists only to have to wait for a return call when you have another question. In the DPC model you gain direct access to your family doctor in Rock Hill. We love being involved and being advocates for our patients.

Inexpensive and direct service. We work directly with you instead of hassling with insurance.

In the direct primary care model, the expense of third party companies has been lifted! These savings are passed on to our patients... YOU! You get the benefit of concierge style treatment without the premium cost.
