Dr. Wanda Henson
I have been a patient of Wanda Henson for a year now. She is personable and down to earth. However, her receptionist has poor customer service skills who never even turns around to acknowledge you and she is rude. Also, the nursing staff changes every time I go there. Not sure what that is about. As I said before, Dr. Henson is easy to talk to and personable. However, you may have to remind her regarding your prescriptions, as mine didn't get called in a couple of times, and once they gave the pharmacy the wrong birthday for me. It's the little things, you know that can make a big difference when you have a busy schedule.

Physicians Care Plaza
The nurses and doctors cuss like sailors in the hallways! The F-word must be a requirement to be hired there!! They treat anyone who has government insurance like a second rate citizen. They are VERY unprofessional and if you dare say anything to them about the way you are treated you will find yourself released from their care. Their favorite way to get rid of patients that they consider beneath them is to say that they had a "dirty urine test". Shame on this facility and shame on the physicians who work there.

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.
