I had to have a finger stitched up and was told there was no cost to have the stitches out. The care & treatment was great. However, when I went back for the removal of stitches, The PAC asked if I had and oozing from the would; said I did and she asked if I wanted a proscription. I said ok & she called in a prescription.She didn't tell me that calling in that prescription would change the visit to an $88 dollar office visit. I didn't know this until I got the bill. I was also charged $100 for a finger splint that can be purchased on Amazon for less than $6. I protested with the owner who reduced the office visit to $25 and the cost of the splint to $35. (I had attached the Amazon info to my email)The medical staff were great; the front office staff had little customer service skills.

Had a minor skin problem that was treated by PA. Nurse was OK, she did her job. Reception staff in-take and out were friendly and helpful. I left there with PA asking me "what are you still doing here". I had not been in this facility for over five years and am not the type of person that enjoys going to see a medical professional. I thought the PA was professional initially, which is all I care about, but left there telling myself that I probably would not return for medical treatment due to the PA's comment. I have insurance and pay my bills and I was not rude to ay staff member there.

Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
