Valley Health Of Hurricane
This review has one star because that's what is necessary to write a review. Otherwise, it would have none. I have been trying unsuccessfully for 8 days to get a prescription. This prescription is one that can't be stopped all at once: you have to be weaned off of it. Apparently, that doesn't matter to Valley Heath Systems I've had problems getting prescriptions refilled before and a local pharmacy told me that was usual for this medical center. I'm going to try one more time tomorrow, and if I have no success, I will never use Valley Health again, anywhere. This is one of the most frustrating medical offices with which I have ever dealt. It is clear that the business aspect takes precedence over patients. They don't seem to care.

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.
