Robert A. Clifford, MD

Dr. Robert Clifford was born in San Diego, California, the son of a Naval Aviator. After many military transfers, he and family moved to Charleston, South Carolina - his "hometown" since 1977. While Robert was always raised in a home that honored the Lord, he remembers hearing the Father's call for "relationship" when he was 10 years old. Furthermore, he recalls working out his "salvation, with fear and trembling" (Philemon 2:12) at the age of 13.

Robert was called into Worship Ministry at the age of 15. It was then that he became a member of Calvary Lutheran Church - where he continues to serve the Lord as Worship Leader and as an Elder. It was at Calvary, also, that the Lord introduced him to his best friend and helpmate, Tiffannie. Tiffannie and Robert have been blessed with two daughters, Lauren and Anna. For these girls, it is their parents' greatest desire that they will "taste and see that the Lord is good" and will forever know that they are loved and are "called, according to His purpose." (Psalm 34:8 and 2 Timothy 1:9)

After graduating Furman University, Robert completed medical school and Pediatric Residency training at the Medical University of South Carolina. He is currently on the Clinical Teaching Faculty at MUSC and serves as the Chairman of Pediatrics at both Roper and St. Francis Hospitals. Additionally, he is a full-time General Pediatrician and a practicing partner with Coastal Pediatric Associates, P.A. in Charleston, SC.

After graduating from the Oak Brook College of Law in 2004, Danielle went to work at the Bostic Law Firm, PA, in Charleston, South Carolina. She enjoys legal work, working with children, music, and hitching motorcycle rides.
