Horrible customer service!! I’ve seen Dr Macko for 2 years since moving to Maricopa. Although Macko seems to care about your health, this is the 2nd time he’s prescribed medication only to not have the scripts called into the pharmacy. Macko even told me directly it would be better for them to fax the scripts to the pharmacy rather than for me to hand carry them to get them filled. I was in to see Macko on 7/25/16 at 9:45 am. It took 5 phone calls to his assistance Bee and never received a call back which I requested. Speaking with the front office staff after not hearing back from Bee, they were less than helpful and very inpatient. It took until 6pm on 7/26 to finally get the medication I needed. I just received a certified letter in the mail today 8/1 letting me know it was unfortunate that Macko would no longer be seeing me and that I was to understand that script refills may require up to 48 hours to fill. It’s unfortunate that this wasn’t a script refill request.
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.
