They ended up changing my appointment when they had test results (unknown to me), that I was having an ectopic pregnancy. It ruptured and I almost died!

Miller Family Medicine
I visited Dr.Miller. He did not listen to my problem fully, heard what he wanted and ran out the room. He does seem to only care about reaching minimal standards. My health issue was never solved and whats more they didnt tell me my tricare wasnt accepted till 3 months later! They told me when I tried to come back to let him know my issue never ceased. They were able to tell me as soon as i walked in, but could not do the same the first visit even though it was already not acceptable. It was just an enrollment issue and was solved immediately. I could have fixed it before the first visit had the receptionist told me, and not had a huge bill for a problem that wasnt fixed. They were also rude. Point blank, there is too much quality care in slidell, to compromise your health and time.
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.
