Dr. Jeffrey J Komenda, MD
I would recommend Dr. Komenda to anyone looking for a family doctor. First and most importantly I trust him. I get very anxious when going to the doctor and he is very calming. He is a very good listener, doesn't hurry me and spends time answering my questions and making certain I understand what is going on with my health. He cares about my overall health and does a great job in getting me the best care when I need a referral for a specialist. He makes the referral process easy. He stays current on all the new stuff in medicine. He is sharp and very intelligent. He always makes certain our prescriptions and the medicines we are taking are all the right ones needed. He doesn't push pills on us. He finds ways to address our medical needs without just putting a quick-fix with a script. He is quick to get back to us on any blood work or test we have. He has great follow up. He takes care of our family.
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.
