I am cynical and reserved about all health care providers and am very surprised by the other reviews here. My daughter and I have gone to this clinic for 2 years. Reception has always been busy but polite, kind and even friendly when they had time. We both see Lauren Alderice, a nurse practitioner who is very patient, informative and receptive. She listens well. Having come from a decade of private, very expensive health insurance, I find Miner's to be every bit as good in terms of professionalism and better at customer service. I am sad to read the reviews below, but certainly can see that this clinic might be one where the choice of doctor has a huge impact on the experience. I'd recommend Lauren Alderice to any adolescent or grown woman patient.

Never had an issues until Dr. Teal got involved. This doctor is so over worked, he made me feel like a number instead of a patient. Dr. Sutton-Pado has been my primary for a couple years. Don't understand why Dr. Teal got involved. Blood work down 2 weeks ago, after numerous phone calls on my part, I still await the results! C'mon doctors, get it together please!
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.
