This is the absolute worst doctor's office I've ever been to in my 29 years. My last office visit, I waited in the exam room (not the waiting room), for over 3 hours waiting for the Dr. Ancelet to come in and see me. When he finally showed up, he spent about 5 minutes with me and most of his attention was on his phone texting. I even threw in a couple questions to see if he was listening and he was not; I got no response. I've been on Lexapro for several years now and this doctor cut off my medication refills without any warning or notice. He wanted me to come in for lab work; lab work he didn't complete the first time he prescribed me Lexapro. Lexapro is a drug you do not mess with; you are NOT supposed to stop COLD TURKEY. This is a money hungry doctor that will require you to have an appointment, for no real reason - other than MONEY. These people are snakes. Requirements are one thing, but it took a week of me totally being cut off the medication before the PHARMACY (not the doctor's office) alerted me that I needed to make an appointment.And if things couldn't get worse, all patient questions/issues/consult, go through Sheila, the RUDEST nurse you will ever meet in your life. Her voicemail states she will get back to you within 1 business day/24 hours. Well I called Monday morning, and it took her almost 3 days just for me to get a call back. No urgency or care whatsoever. After 2 days of phone tag, I finally speak with the infamous "Sheila". You can't get a word in with her. She wants to bark, not listen. She is so incredibly rude, degrading, and just a plain b****. When I asked if I could finally say something, she HUNG UP ON ME.This practice, Dr. Ancelet, and nurse Sheila give every other person in medicine a bad reputation. When you hear of money hungry, sleazy, could care less for their patients, these are the people and examples of who they are referring to. These people do not care about you.Unethical. Unprofessional. Careless
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.
