We manage an office building in Gwinnett County. My allergies were really flaring up during the spring in the well treed Atlanta area. I was in great discomfort and had trouble breathing. On the advice of our local handyman, he suggested going to Buford Family Practice Center.Dr. Osowa takes took the time to listen to my allergy symptoms and history.After listening to my chest and looking in my nose, he diagnosed my condition as allergy induced asthma.He wrote me a prescription for Singulair, which he said would help prevent any further daily wheezing, that I was experiencing. The pills have worked with no adverse side effects. I would recommend to a friend Buford Family Practice & Urgent Care to anyone. Dr. Osowa helps patients understand their condition There office is pleasant and their staff very professional. I didn't wait that long considering their office was pretty busy.

I waited for over an hour to be seen by the Nurse Practitioner to talk for 5 minutes about getting a prescription. She was really nice, and so was the office staff, which gives them the 3 stars. Not excited about the wait time. Was also told that my prescription would be called in Monday - if I hadn't heard, to call Monday afternoon. Did that, sent a message via the portal, left another message today. STILL no response. Seems a little ridiculous.

I have been going to this practice for over a year now and I really enjoy the professionalism of the employees and doctor. I am always informed of any outstanding debt whenever I visit. I have been made to wait for a bit on some occasions but one the one occasion when my daughter had excruciating abdominal pain, I was attended to immediatey
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.
