Athens Primary Care
I take my elderly mother here and have found it a very good experience. We very much appreciate the quality care she receives from Dr Mary Bond and enjoy her easy going personality and caring spirit. Dr Griffin appears to be a very cordial doctor and all my patients that see him have excellent comments regarding his care and bedside manner. I will continue to recommend and refer to these doctors and this office.

My family has used this pharmacy since the eighties. I remember being a child and having prescriptions filled here. The staff is always curteous. It seems they are always busy. And they do not have the whole industrial look to their facilities. It is a very "down home" feeling inside their facility.

I love this pharmacy. The staff are very curtious and friendly, and the prices are very reasonable. They also fill many prescriptions with name brand medications without charging an arm and a leg. It's also right down the street from Athens Regional Hospital.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
