Righttime Medical Care
Convenience, neglectful staff, mediocre care. If you do schedule an appointment, try not to do it right before they close, because the staff's priority is not the patients in the facility, the staff's priority becomes "leaving as soon as possible," regardless of patients, and by all means, make sure that they review the results of any tests that they conduct.I been to this office approximately 8 times. It was so much more less a hassle than going to the hospital that I recommended it to all of my friends, at first; but since, I have discovered that the doctors almost always have a less than hospitable demeanor, making "smart" comments (one time, it was about my attire), and to put it bluntly, you get a rushed (mis)diagnosis...I suggest that if you go to Nighttime Pediatrics, make sure that the doctors and the staff do not neglect you.I brought my son in over the summer and I absolutely would not recommend the Waugh Chapel Nighttime Pediatrics - the doctor put minimal effort into my son's diagnosis, and told us that he had a "cold", a member of the staff tried to rush us out the door without checking the results of the fast-strep test (I had to remind her), the staff offered us balloons, but every time my son would pick a balloon, the staff member would say, "Oh, I'm sorry, that one's already taken." (three times!)I was wondering where else I could take my son to be properly diagnosed on the way home that evening; is this how a person (that just paid out-of-pocket and is now broke) should feel on the way home from taking their sick child to a medical facility? I felt so uncomfortable with the rushed diagnosis and general disregard by the staff of Waugh Chapel Nighttime Pediatrics that I took my son to Minute Clinic at CVS in Crofton 2 days later; that "cold" was a very contagious virus that was NOT A COLD and NOT STREP THROAT (quite easy for the nurse at Minute Clinic to diagnose, by the way); I could have made precautions for the other members of the household to prevent them from acquiring this very contagious virus, if my son had been properly diagnosed properly at Nighttime Pediatrics. I left a complaint with Nighttime Pediatrics and they 1) apologized, and 2) I was informed that my son's treatment would not have changed even though the diagnosis was different; part of the treatment should include minimizing other people's exposure to very contagious illnesses!Would I still go to Nighttime Pediatrics? Only for the obvious stuff, like a urinary tract infection, and I would do my best to schedule it way before closing time, and I would ask them what the results of the my test(s) were several times to ensure that they were actually reviewed. Oh, if you're lucky, the doctors may keep the comments about your attire to themselves OR YOU CAN GO TO THE MINUTE CLINIC where it takes less time, you get a proper diagnosis and the staff is more professional.
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.
