Medistop Clinic
Yes this is in regards to the medistop clinic ARSHAD UMER, MD my pcp. The office is very un organized and very very unproffessional. The lady sharvanna or something like that is very lazy and never followed through with verifying my insurance the day she scheduled me. When i got to my appointment i still had to wait 45 minutes ! The lady at the front did not care at all and just looked at me and said you just want to reschedule? Also after i got labs i was told i would get my referral to the dermatologist and i never got one. When i returned to the doctor to get lab results still no referral, and even a call midweek no referral! The lady was so rude she asked me why is it so urgent, and my response was because i am loosing hair that is why! Finally i demanded a diagnosis and referral and doctor called me back at my work. He was so incredibly rude and spoke over me constantly. He barely gave me the referral! I do not appreciate being treated this way when i am loosing hair and there is no real concern for the patients 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.
