Trappe Family Practice
I've been taking all four of my children to Trappe Pediatrics, as they arrived, for 14 years. They have seen my kids at their best and their worst. They've diagnosed a kidney infection and sent me to CHOP with a newborn as well as sent me to specialists when I felt other issues could be more serious. They've also told me, in a professional manner, that I was overly concerned and shouldn't worry (I did anyway) about various things. My view is this: Trappe Peds is the only place I'm comfortable for the everyday, meet-your-needs doctor. If I ever feel something is more serious, I ask where they would go for a specialist.

The professionalism at this office is non-existent. The front office is not nice and act as if you are disrupting their day by calling in to make an appointment and what’s worst when they greet you, they have such an attitude that it makes you want to turn around and walk the other way. We had an appointment and the doctor instructed us to come back for a procedure two weeks later. When we arrived back two weeks later for the procedure, the doctor had no clue why I was back in there. If the nurse would have prepared him or if the doctor would’ve had taken the time to go over the file prior to me coming in, I wouldn’t have to go into detail when I was specifically come in there for a very sensitive procedure. Needless to say, we’ve changed out doctor and do not recommend anyone to go to this office

Trappe Family Practice
Don't ignore the negative reviews, I did and my daughter paid the price. They are obviously overly busy and while that means little when your going in for shots but when you go in, like we did when my daughter injured her knee, that same overworked office had the results for my daughter's MRI and didn't call me, they didn't call anyone. It was after I called (for the second time) that they informed me that she had a torn meniscus. The surgery went well and I learned that the people at C.H.O.P. are twice as busy, twice as friendly, and twice as fast as Trappe Peds could dream of being one their best day. Don't be fooled, busy doesn't mean competent.

Upper Providence Pediatrics & Family Medicine Md
As a first time mother I wasn’t sure what to expect from my pediatrician. Turns out I shouldn’t have expected anything from Upper Providence Pediatrics. I have been a mother for two minutes and have more instinct and understanding of what is going on with my baby than Dr. Rao. I have been to two specialists that wanted to know who my pediatrician is because they couldn’t believe that I didn’t get him in to see them earlier. First was the ENT. They wanted to know why we waited 10 ear infections in 5 months to bring him. Dr. Rao told me not to but I made the appointment anyway. The allergist laughed when I told him that Dr. Rao said that he probably has seasonal allergies. “A 10 month old can’t develop seasonal allergies that early.” I kept on bringing in my baby for 6 weeks saying he isn’t getting better and I am worried. Is there something that you are missing? Once again Dr. Rao assured me not to worry about it because it’s probably season allergies. He was coughing and wheezing so bad that it was causing him to vomit in the middle of the night. The allergist diagnosed him with asthma. My baby could have died and you are telling me not to worry about it. I am shaking right now writing this because I can’t believe how bad of a pediatrician you are. Do you even care that my families livelihood depends on me working? Do you know what it’s like not to have any sleep and work the next day for weeks straight? Up all night worried that your child is going to stop breathing or aspirate on his own vomit? Of course you don’t! You just collect your paycheck and go on your merry way. Dr. Tsai isn’t any better. My only interaction with her is getting advice on how to treat a baby with a 104 fever for four days. She gave me incorrect information on the doses of motrin and Tylenol to give my infant son. Apparently, she didn’t realize how old he was and was giving me toddler doses. Are you kidding me? I depend on you as a parent to give me correct information. The only reason I knew any better is because I took him to the ER earlier. I would have overdosed my infant son based upon your recommendation. You should feel horrible. I am not someone that complains for no reason. Actually, I’ve had two appointments with Dr. Zapotok and she was very helpful with diagnosing croup. She listened to what I had to say and answered all my questions. Unfortunately, you can’t be guaranteed Dr. Zapotok every visit and this is why I am switching pediatricians. Wish me luck with the next. I really don’t think it could get much worse.
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.
