Suzanne Marie Sally MD
DO NOT use Sally Marie as your OB doctor!! She was terrible as my OB! Because I told her in the last few weeks of my pregnancy that I didn't feel I was getting the service I deserved (I had a very rough high risk pregnancy), and that I wanted a Pediatrician there when the baby was born-she would not release control of the birth for nothing. Even though the C-section surgeon asked her three times if I was ready to go to surgery she would not let me go-she made me push for hours and in the process injured by poor baby boy's neck. He still says it bothers him sometimes and he is 15! I had to take him to physical therapy at 5 months because he couldn't look both directions. It was a miserable experience that left me reeling! DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT USE HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have been warned!
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.
