For starters, the lady at the check-in desk in the E.R. was rude to put it mildly. She also ignored me when I asked her a question because I wasn't standing directly in front of her. Then, after moving to be directly in-front of her, she looked at me like I just asked her to recite the Hippocratic Oath to me. I only asked if I was allowed to change the channel on one of the t.v.s in the E.R. waiting room. The wait time from tri'age to a procedural room was 1 1/2 hours. Once taken back it was another 1 1/2 hours before treatment was administered. And besides the triage nurse occasionally walking by mumbling something there was no other indication of what was going to happen and when. Then, because he was given the wrong information, a nurse comes and demands that we leave. Wow. All in all I am disgusted at the level of treatment and will NEVER come back to this hospital.

I always will give anyone in the medical profession the benefit of the doubt until I have seen them so I have to believe if he is a man with and is passionate about his work he will be a good Doctor. No Passion it might not be that way at all. We will see what we will see and then I will get back to you all.............40,000,000,000 of you.

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.
