Dr. Jon E Lutz, MD
Dr Lutz is primarily responsible for me still being alive now at age 70 still undetectble viral load after being diagnosed HIV positive in Jan 1992, 21 years ago, Dr Lutz came on the scene as the 2nd doctor. He sent me to the cardiologist just in time to prevent a fatal heart attack 06/01/1998. I has bipass sugery. Dr Lutz saved my life a second time. We both grew together, patient and doctor, as cutting edge medication in the HIV area advanced and became available. I am a patient from when Dr. Lutz was in California. Wish we had him back. Bend, OR, is blessed and lucky to have Dr. Lutz as a First Rate Physician. I still have seen Andrew Zolapa, MD at Stanford and am doing great. Dr Zolapa, a cutting edge HIV medical research doctor has been a mentor physician for Dr. Lutz.
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.
