Young, Robert P, MD
Dr. Young is fantastic. I have loved going to see him. this would have been one star if it wasn't for him. This review is coming from my visit today. I saw one of his physicians and she was totally rude and didn't even come close to answering my question. The computer system was so messed up that they had no idea what medicine I was on and still to this point couldn't figure it out. I was pointing out a lump that was hurting really bad and I said "ok this one is bad." Her reply? "It's not bad. It might hurt but its not bad." then she treated the bump extremely roughly. I brought up an injection that they had given me for my last bump and asked if it was to the point of needing that and she said. "If it was as bad as you say it was, then that wouldn't even be a question. You shouldn't even have to ask me that." Those were just a few of my highlights. the PAs definitely need to work on bedside manners
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.
