Advance Family Practice
I was referred to Dr. V and Advance Family Practice by a coworker and started going this year. Both Dr. V, PA Lindsay, and assistant Courtney have been amazing in helping me with my medical issues. The office is always very busy so make sure you make an appointment, but know the reason they are busy is because they are a great facility and have retained a very large patient base. The front desk team is always polite and patient, even when there is a full waiting room, and as long as you arrive on time for your appointment, the wait is never long (I have a problem with this as I am usually running late and they still get me in to see the doctor with very little wait). Overall, I am happy that I found a doctor's office that I feel comfortable going to. Every member of the staff is respectful and friendly, and for someone that has typically dreaded going to the doctor, in the past, I never feel judged or uncomfortable speaking about any medical concerns I have.

Advance Family Practice
I have been going here for almost two years. They helped me get off pain killers. When it came to my psych medication I had my Psychiatrist send in a report of the medications that I take for my diagnoses, and then was able to transfer them over, so I no longer had to see two doctors for prescriptions. I was depressed and had been on an MAORI and only seemed to make things worse. They recommend I try and SRI and have not ever been as happy as one should. At any good practice they take your blood, but they take time to do it in house and send it out. (No Diagnostic Health facilities where people are chronically sick and usually bad cleanliness. That shows Mr fish oil does not know the ins and outs.) They are by the book and require an MRI or some proof that you need to be on any narcotics for pain. The blood test showed me exactly what I was deficient in and what foods would provide me to work as a complete human being.

Complimentary Letter -- Patient Services:After nearly three decades of “Dr. Patel’s father and son doctoring,” Connie and I can say that they are simply the best! “They” includes everyone at their office – Lindsay, the recently hired Physician Assistant, Office Manager Maxine (a heart of gold!), Medical Assistants Ralph and Christy (is there anything they can’t do?), Cisco, the Phlebotomist (“a good stick” every time) and Tanita, the Referral Coordinator (she gets it right every time). We are part of their family and they ours. They have always taken on our medical challenges with the utmost professionalism, patience, persistence, compassion and encouragement. We couldn’t ask for anything more.We know our futures are as bright as they can possibly be with Advance Family Practice!!- Mark and Connie

I absolutely love Dr. Muhumuza. If it weren't for him I would never return to this location. They are severely understaffed & extremely busy at all times. I can never get anyone to answer the phone in under 15 minutes of waiting. In fact I have called several times and never gotten anyone to answer. When my son was sick I called for 3 days in a row before I finally just showed up at the office demanding to see someone. The office staff came and apologized but it was very unprofessional.

This Doctor is amazing!!!, I went to see her on 6/28/13 I had been seeing another doctor for high blood pressure and diabetes, who would never listen and love to make radical jokes. DR.Tran and the whole staff were great she listen to my concerns about the meds. gave me her insight and form a treatment plan for me, she even went out of the way to find me a better pharmacy. I can not say enough good about this place, GREAT DOCTORS, GREAT STAFF. EXCELLENT AROUND.

I've been going to this office for about nine years now. Going without one single incident. In fact, on a Saturday I realized that I was without my Lipitor prescription South Florida. I called in to see if they could call it in for me in Boca. They understood laughed with/at me and called it in that day. Great office/staff/physicians!! Go Here!!

We have been patients of Dr. Maharaj since 2006 and have only good things to say. In addition to the Dr. herself, her staff and management are excellent. She is in high demand and sometimes a little patience is required but they will work with you to look after your healthcare needs. I would recommend then highly!

The doctors, nurses, and staff here are very friendly. I've been going to them ever since I've had acid reflux problems and stomach irritations over a year. They really care about their patients. I feel very comfortable going here.

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.
