When I came to this office, I was in unbelievable pain and no one could help me. I have chronic back pain and I'm in a job that requires me to be on my feet ALL day long, so it's constantly aggravated. Some of the best health care professionals I've seen in my life have been nurse practitioners, and none of the so called doctors or orthopedic surgeons could ease my pain. Angie is awesome--a miracle worker. She was able to diagnosis my problems before all of the xrays, scans, etc. Her explanations made sense and were always correct. The reason they are strict about the pills is so you don't accidentally kill yourself---which anyone with a right mind would understand and appreciate---not to mention that it is illegal for you to take more pills than you are supposed to---so she's savin' your neck from going to jail as well. You should be thankin' her instead of berating her.
My 2 y.o had a fever for 3 days, would eat or drink anything. I have just got diagnosed with Strep a week prior. My child had white spots in her throat. I took her in the first time, but her strep test came back negative (the nurse did not swab her throat deep enough), so I was sent home with no treatment. I was told to wait another day or so and come back if the fever doesn't go away. It didn't, so I took her back. I was in the office in 08:00 and left still without treatment at 12:30. They wanted to rule out the viral infection by drawing blood (which makes sense), but the test for Mono was negative. Then, the nurse forgot to send her blood to get CBC and they wanted to stick my child again. After 4 hours of sitting in the room, I walked out and went to Walgreen clinic where my daughter received antibiotics.
