Welcome, Carol! Our forum software doesn't automatically notify users of someone replying to their post unless we use the "quote" function by clicking on the quotation mark in the upper right hand corner of their post. Doing that brings their post over to the Posting/Editing page, as I did by quoting both caroline809 and you. So if she has found a Dr. in S. Carolina, she can share it with us!
Here's some other suggestions to find providers and sources for Dr. Bredesen's labs:
1) If you just want to order some or most of the labs recommended in Dr. Bredesen's book, without needing a report on the results beyond what labs provide, your current health care provider may be able to order at least some through your insurance. All or most also can be ordered through direct-to-consumer lab options, which you can read about in our wiki section on Direct to Consumer Lab Testing Options
2) If you want to see options for prioritizing which labs you should order, either to stay within your budget or because you know certain areas are well within normal limits, or other areas have been a concern for your or in family history, you may want to check out this section of our Primer

3) If you are looking for a provider who can both order the labs and interpret the results because that person has completed training in the Bredesen Protocol, then you may want to check these resources from our Wiki: Searching for a Healthcare Practitioner ApoE4-Aware Healthcare Practitioners
