My family and I have been going to this practice for several years, and we use to like it. But until recently they became mean with some of their doctors. My wife went there with bad sinus infection, and Dr Gish I think was her name about 46 years old told my wife she refuses to give her any medication because she wasn't sick enough. She now has what I believe is the beginning of pneumonia . She had to fight with their nurse just to find out if they will give her medicine this time. We are changing doctors after this. We went from Lancaster General Hospital, Lancaster , Penna to Hershey Medical Center, Hershey Penna. Is this the result of obuma-care????*Any thing that has to do with Norlanco Family Medicine In my opinion and experience( S T A Y A W A Y)

When I recieved a bill in the mail for lab results, I called the office to find out why I was billed for something I didn't recieve. They said I needed to call the billing dept, who said I needed to call the lab, who said I needed to call the insurance, who said I needed to call the dr's office. I finally talked to a very combative and rude woman who said basically, that it isn't their policy to call patients with the results, the patient is expected to just keep calling them until the results are in. When I asked why I wasn't notified of this absurd policy at the time of my visit, she just huffed and said she would have a nurse call me with the results (3 months later).
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.
