I was in need of some emergency work and searched and googled for surgeons to consult with. Dr. James Fernau was one of several I wanted to speak with and after meeting with him, I knew I didn't need to look any further. I decided on Dr. James Fernau after reading positive reviews on him and knowing that he has great educational and professional credentials. Many people said he was very personable and kind, which were important characteristics to me. Everything turned out beautifully, from the first appointment to the surgery and the post-op visits. His staff was very knowledgeable and Dr. James Fernau knew exactly what needed to be done and explained in detail what to expect. The rest of the surgical team was also very competent and caring and made me feel as comfortable as possible. Dr. James Fernau insists on many follow-ups to make sure you are healing properly. He and his staff never kept me waiting. I would definitely recommend Dr. James Fernau and would not hesitate to use him for other procedures. He is both competent and caring and you will be in good hands.

Every doctor, regardless of specialty should strive to be like Dr. James Fernau. He is extremely professional and patient, taking his time to thoroughly explain my procedure in terms I could identify with. He used many before and after photos to give a very realistic expectation of the final result. Dr. James Fernau has a very confident yet down to earth deameanor so I felt comfortable right from the start. Also, I was never rushed to make decisions, and always felt he had my best interests in mind. In the end the outcome of my procedure was exactly as expected, a testament to his attention to detail and skill as a plastic surgeon. Overall my experience was fantastic from the first phone call I made to the last follow up appointment. The entire team was always attentive and caring and I can't imagine anyone could have a more beautiful office. If you are looking for a caring and highly skilled plastic surgeon, I strongly recommend Dr. James Fernau. I would not hesitate to refer him to my family and friends.

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.
