Like other reviewers, I had the same experience when I had dr Svendson for my PCM. First, she was incredibly insensitive and very obviously judgemental about a lot of things I won't mention here. She wouldn't take any of my health problems seriously (which all existed before I gained weight... And were the REASON I gained weight. Every time I spoke with her about my very real and serious issues, she would tell me that if I lost weight they would all go away an I should come to her weight loss /health spa.." Oh but your insurance won't pay for it, so it will be out of pocket, but well worth it." If I had the problems before I gained weight- chances are if I actually try to remedy the problems, themselves, I could be more active and healthy. I am sure she's more concerned about her health spa than being an actual medical doctor.

Very rude and terrible bedside manner. Seems to be more concerned with her medical spa then with her actual medical patients.
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.
