Dr. Milstead is an exemplary surgeon & human being. In 1984, when I was 16, I cut my right thumb off in a table saw accident. Dr. Milstead took care of my like I was his own child. Unfortunately the saw did too much damage to my thumb so it had to be removed 7 days after Dr. Milstead reattached it. For the next 5 years Dr. Milstead used his GREAT talents to allow me to once again be able fully use my right hand again. I was right handed and thanks to Dr. Milstead still right handed. I will ALWAYS be appreciative to Dr. Milstead for what he has done for me. I continue to see Dr. Milstead from time to time over the last 30 years and I consider him a friend. I have trusted him to perform surgery on my hand over 10 times. I can't say enough about how a AWESOME Doctor and person he is.

Very helpful and knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable. I would highly recommend dr van norman, He exceeded my expectations of eye surgery. I have 20/20 vision !!! I came from dry eyes, red eyes, not being comfortable wearing contacts. I could not see distance or up close very well. After my surgery I see wonderful colors and crisp clean details. With my busy schedule and traveling. I have my sight back. Meeting him has changed my life.

Dr. Van Norman is very thorough in explaining options regarding cataract surgery. This made the decision process so much easier. The surgery itself was equally easy, painless and produced an excellent result. My vision in my right eye was immediately improved after surgery. I will have the left eye surgery in a week.

AS a marksman, having to see both long range and close up is critical. Dr. Norman is very interested to learning how I use my eyesite during this process. He then comes u p with the best solution to accommodate my needs. Never had this interaction before with a Doctor, love it. Thanks for the hard work.

Great doctor,very caring. I am very pleased with my cataract surgery. I recommend Dr. Van Norman to my friends. I never thought I would be able to see without contacts or glasses. Dr. Van Norman put me at ease before my surgery. I am so happy to have found such a wonderful doctor.

I love this doctor and his nurses. My appointments were quick and he had wonderful bedside manners. Even when I was giving birth to my daughter, me and him were joking around about stuff and having general conversations. His nurses and staff are wonderful too.

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.
