Atwood Family Medical Center
Don't believe the negative comments posted for Dr. Atwood. He is an awesome doctor and has treated my family for 25 years. When my parents first started with his practice he went back to school at night and on weekends so he could learn how to treat my Mom's thyroid condition. Later he went above and beyond his call to take of my father when he was diagnosed with lung cancer and was even present at his funeral. If it weren't for him and his staff we would have never known my Mom had leukemia. Her specialist had known for a year and because my Mom couldn't pay the $40 copay they never called her to tell her. A YEAR!!! He also takes care of my daughter, my brother and his family and guess what? We are all still living. The reason he may not take a Medicare patient is because Medicare limits the amount of patients a primary physician can see also how would you like to spend an hour with someone and get paid $20.27? I work for a doctor and that is what Medicare pays us per patient... To address the test after test comment. Thank your insurance company for that one. They set the guidelines on how a doctor can proceed with HIS patient. That's why you can't be seen for more than one ailment at a time. THEY (insurance) want to tell the doctor how to treat HIS patient. Its unbelievable, yet we allow it because we have to have health coverage. Don't fault the doctor unless you have read his contract with the insurance company...

Buddy, you just had a bad day that day. We all have them. I have been with them since they moved from Providence Rd. They, even though my wonderful Dr is Santa aka Dr Marks, are great.Merrilee, Natalie, and the younger people Merrilee goes out of her way to give them a good, smart start. After all SMART young people working and learning make great Nurses and Doctors. In total complete honesty they saved my life. You know how? Never giving up. If I wasn't doing what I was supposed to be doing, Boom!!!! they (Merrilee) told me to get busy and do what Dr Marks had prescribed. To me they are the best.They all talked, scolded me and really really save my life TODAY. I am so thankful I have them and feel like part of the family there. Today I am healthier than ever, so get better. The Lady doctor or Lady doctor practioner are the best, Dr Marks is a straight shooter as Merrilee and Natalie are when they want to see you it's like the principal's office.So get better and don't give up on them.

Chesapeake Spine Center
I ABSOLUTELY enjoyed my time here. I transfered to this facility after having a not so very nice experience with a different chiropractor. The staff here are so welcoming. When my time ended here it was sad for me. They make you feel like family. Dr. McDowell is the most friendliest, gentle, down to earth and sociable doctor I have ever met. Hailee, who scheduled my appointments is as humble as they come, cute as a button and always smiling and laughing making you feel at home. Shannon, who is no longer there because she moved out of state, (sad day for me) was super funny. We were constantly telling each other jokes. I promise, not only will you get the care you need . But the feeling of family is so strong here. I can't wait to go visit them...WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!!! <3 :)

Rude Office StaffDr. Chad was nice; however the office staff here is incredibly rude and unprofessional. After a consultation visit and approximately 10 adjustments over the course of a month I will be going somewhere else. Scheduling appointments at an office that is closed from 10:45-2:30 everyday, as well as being closed Tuesday morning (until 2:30) and closed all day Thursday is ridiculous!! The front desk staff is unpleasant both in person and on the phone, the office manager only works part time 3 days a week and has lots of excuses for the staff's attitude. If anyone at my job acted this way with customers they would be fired.

Dr Atwood has a very professional practice. I left past doc due to hours of waiting. Here, I get in on time every time, I very much appreciate that. Also Dr Atwood listens and has always solved whatever problem I have had. I see someone has a 'referral' problem and at various rating sites harasses the Dr. Dont believe them, Dr A may refer if needed but that is the state of medacine today.Overall, very happy to call Dr Atwood our family doctor!

Both my wife and I love Planet Chiropractic. The entire staff is very friendly and professional. Dr. Chad and Dr. Tugsan both take the time to listen to any concerns one may have and do their best to help fix the issue. I recommend this office to anyone I come in contact with that has chiropractic needs.

Dr. Moss listens to you. He gives you a chance to tell him what you've been through regarding your problem. Doctors have told me that my headaches were all in my head, that they couldn't find anything wrong. Doctor Moss fixed my headaches. I no longer get them. Thank you so much Dr. Moss. Jean M.

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.
