Dr. John W Durham, MD
Dr. Durham performed an emergency surgery on my left arm on January 22, 2007. I was sleep walking and fell thru a plate glass door. I was lucky, Dr. Durham was on call. I worked in the Medical field for over 25 years, just 50 miles from Flagstaff. Working in the field you hear everything, good and not so good about all in Medical Services. I had cut my Ulnar nerve and damaged it also in the process. He had to trim the damaged part of the nerve off. This left very little of the nerve left for a repair ! But he was able to get my arm in a position to see the nerve back together continued--

During my pre-op appointment, Dr. Bonatus asked me if I had any questions. I said "Yea, how many total hip replacements have you done?" He answered "Over 2,000." "Ok, we are good to go then!" To date (13 days after total hip replacement) I'm doing fantastic according to both Dr. Bonatus' PA and the PT. It is SO nice to no longer hurt with a bad hip! This facility is GREAT!
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.
