I have been being treated by Dr diGiovanna for 20 years. He is one of the best doctors that I have ever been to. he has gotten me a long ways. I have a lot of back problems/ Plus he took care of my regular health problems. He and his staff are very kind. They are the best.If it wasnt because of moveing so far away I would have never looked for a new one. But the was hurting me.If anyone needs a good doctor he is the best.There are other good doctors in his office. But I only had the pleasure of getting to know him. And it was so easy to gain trust in him.He takes real good care of his patience. He took good care of my in laws and my wife.I would like to give a special thanks to him and his staff for all they have done for me.I hope I get the trust and confidence in my new doctor that I have here.

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.
