I love my primary doctor I use, but have had a lot of bad experiences with their urgent care. My 5 year olds face swelled up randomly the doctor that saw her said "wow that is weird, but I don't know why that happened" and sent her home. I brought her to another doctor at Riverway the next day that gave me some bogus explanation saying a cut on her head was just draining and sent us home (even though I told him puss had been coming out of the tiny cut on her head) I ended up having to bring her to the ER a couple days later when the cut got WAY deeper and started putting out a ton of puss. She had a serious Strep infection!!! I've had them send my kids home when they had pneumonia. A total waste of money and time. They do the bare minimum and clearly can't diagnos anything!

I go here for all of my kids and have the most amazing peds doc! He listens so well to any concern no matter how late in the day your appointment is. He also provides a sense of humor which makes it easy to talk & ask all that I need to. The wait time can get a little long but the service is great.

A dr at this clinic diagnosed a close freind of mine with adhd with a few questions.I ended up going there for the same reason but was told i had to have a phycologist evaluate me and i did that and was found to have it after a 6 hour evaluation. Also have a long history of severe back pain and have had back fusion. hadn't had a narcotic of any kind in 2 years or more, we moved and i hurt my back to the point that i was using a cane and could hardly walk so I went in and asked for enough pain meds to last me a week or so and was denied without reason and was not offered any other solution. And have never had any legal or any other problems with narcotics. Switched to fairview clinics and am very happy I did. they listen and show respect. I wouldn't recommend riverway to anyone. Hope this review helps someone.
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.
