Excela Chestnut Ridge Family
The ladies who work the phones are unprofessional and unrealistic. I wanted to be a new patient and make an appointment, seeing how my family now has a great health insurance plan. The lady who answered the phone said that she would need all my prior records before she can even schedule an appointment. I explained to her that it had been three years since my last GYN appt and that was in Florida, which could take some time. I also have injured my left wrist and it is very painful, that I really need to see the doctor. She informed to come by and pick up a release authorization form. I asked her if she could fax it to me or is it a downloadable form. She said "Nope". Making a trip to the Doctor's Office just to pick up a form ... extremely unrealistic. What she does not know is that I am a caregiver for an autistic child and a disabled husband. I have waited three years to see a doctor and it definitely is not going to happen with Excela Chestnut Ridge Family. They just lost patients and credibility with me, my circle of friends and acquaintances
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.
