Dr. Rapp opened the office of Premier Surgical Services, PA in Greenwood in September of 2003 which provided the community with a surgical practice offering weight loss surgery options in addition to a full range of general surgery options. This is the first practice with a dedication to bariatric surgery in the six county area of Greenwood, Laurens, Edgefield, Abbeville, McCormick, and Saluda counties.
