Primary Care Partners
Docs On Call isn't that great, not gonna lie. The docs don't seem to know what they are doing really, most of the time.. When I go there anyway. They do fine with adults it seems, but they aren't good with kids at all. I have an almost 2 year old daughter, I've taken her to DOC before but I would rather wait to make her an appointment for her real doctor the next day rather than going there, or if she absolutely had to be seen asap, I would rather just take her to the ER at St.Marys or Community. But the doctors upstairs and pediatrics doctors (downstairs/opposite side of DOC) are AMAZING! ESPECIALLY the pediatricians. Mike Whistler was my pediatrician (and my sisters and cousins) from the time we were born till we turned 18. (I'm almost 21 now). So now only one of my little sisters sees him and my 2 year old daughter and 6 year old step daughter sees him. (Well my Step daughter did until she moved to Fruita a couple months ago). We all love him, him and Heather Scott (who we have also all know since I/myfamily was a baby) is also amazing too! Primary Care Partners with the exception of DOCs (which isn't always that bad, like I said they do alright with adults, it's mainly kids they aren't so good with or know much about it seems) they are great overall.

Appleton Clinics
I am a single mother of two who earns to much money for assistance but can't afford health care thru my employer. I heard about the Appleton Clinic and called for a consult to see what they offer. I immediately signed up. It has been a financial blessing for my family and I have personally met every staff member and Dr. there. What wonderful individuals. They really take the time to listen to you and what your going thru. Personal attention is priceless when it comes to your health. I have even suggested co workers to check it out and have had my employer look into adding it to our current insurance plan once we are up for renewal. I would recommend Appleton Clinics to everyone.Crys Lake ~

Campbell, Laura P, MD
I have lived in the Grand Valley for 7 years now and FINALLY found a general practitioner I am happy with. I first picked her because I work at hospital and see that she takes great care of her patients and makes solid clinical decisions. After seeing her at the office I was incredibly pleased. Laura Campbell has an approachable and caring bedside manor. She is very thorough and makes her patients feel “heard”. I will no longer be a constant procrastinator when it comes to my health!

Western Valley Family Practice
Took over 6 weeks to tell me with a letter in the mail that they could not take me as a patient, ran out of prescrips in the meantime. Did not tell me up front that they were that slammed with apps. Called four times in that period.
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.
