Woodsy doctors office I've ever visited. I had many tests taken and the doctor refused to call me to give discuss my results. I have to pay to get a copy of them? I spent hundreds of dollars for nothing. Very unprofessional also.

As a first time patient due to change of insurance, I was very displeased with the service I received at the Roxboro location. I went into the office feeling horrible; my skin was on fire and extremely tight on my face and most all my lymph nodes were swollen almost to visibility.Despite all of these apparent facts, the nurse practitioner who saw me, prescribed me with topical creams with no regard to the fact that my LYMPH NODES were swollen. My background is in Biological Science, though I am not a doctor, I know swollen lymph nodes means INFECTION some where in the body. Do you think she prescribed and antibiotics?? Next day I ended up in the ER.... Shame.Not to mention the unprofessionalism of the "check in" nurses at front desk. Loud, surfing Facebook, taking selfies, and showing them off to colleagues....I like to keep hard copies of all legal and medical papers that I sign when I am new to a facility. I asked for her to make a copy of my consent form and privacy form, and the front desk clerk caught an attitude, and huffed and hissed at my inquiry, and replied "Oh, it's just a consent form like any other Drs office."Had I been feeling a little better, that nurse would have learned that day that I am well educated, and am very sure of what my rights are as a patient.Atmosphere too laid back. Workers at front desk too "familiar" to the point of lost fact and respect.Never setting foot in that Kent again. Perhaps your experience will be better than mine.

This medical office is very unprofessional. I had a front office assistant tell me that I should just MOVE IN because I was coming there so often. I had a nurse SLAM THE DOOR when she walked out, because I questioned her about not calling me back, when I left a message the day before. One of the doctors that offered to see me after hours interrupted me 10 minutes into the visit. She told me that she needed to put up some boundaries, because she had a family to go home to and I needed to just trust her. Evidently, I had too many questions and it was making her upset because she "had been there since 7am". I informed her that I understood she had a family that she wanted to go home to, however my medical health concerns needed to be answered and taken care of so that I too could take care of my family.

My entire family has been patients of this practice for over 20 years. We have never had any real complaints until recently. My boyfriend (a new patient) was billed a $100 fee for "no-show" when I personally called to reschedule it. During this phone call, there was never any mention of a $100 fee. He attended the rescheduled appointment a couple of weeks later and still no one mentioned the $100 fee. Now, well over a month later... he received an invoice in the mail for $100 out of nowhere. I have called and left over 5 voicemails for the office manager and she can't be bothered to return my calls. Instead, she has Nikki call me to inform me (in a very condescending way) that the $100 will not be waived even though nothing like this has ever happened before (1st time occurrence.) Not only that but Nikki implied and insinuated that my family was on Medicaid (which even if we were... so what?) but we aren't (we have BCBS). She was insulting and offensive. I am very disappointed that after so many years, this is how they have treated me. I could care less about the $100 fee at this point... it's the principle and the way they have handled it. It's unfortunate but after 20+ years, my family will no longer be patients of this practice. Be aware of their poor business ethics and practices.
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.
