I’ve had the best doctor there for a long time, but the business has taken a turn down. The doctors are scheduled for 15 minute appointments and sometimes double booked. They are overworked and harassed. The staff is best at putting you on hold. I had to call four times for one appointment in May. Don’t bother leaving a message; the call won’t be returned. Today, we had to call to check on a medication for my husband (health issues), and were told ‘the list is too long for them to look.’ He’s currently taking seven medications. I dread calling there for any reason, and no longer use my mobile because it used too many minutes! There is one person who works part time there – not even in the front, who is an angel, and will always give me info quickly. However, I feel I shouldn’t always ask her -- not fair to her. I would pay more if it eased some of the stress trying to get an appointment and getting through it, just to see my doctor. My doctor is well aware of the horrid service and is as frustrated with the staff as I am.

I just moved to this area and needed a Dr. The entire process was very efficient and professional. I scheduled my appt. and received a follow up message with date/time/address. The building isn't much on the outside, but the inside was clean. The staff are very pleasant and efficient. My appointment was for 9:15 and I was seen at about 9:30 by Miranda. This being my first visit, we spent nearly two hours going over my history, discussing concerns, doing a routine physical. I was very impressed with the fact that I didn't feel rushed and the exam was so thorough. I hadn't even left the office when my first referral called to set my next appointment! Really a great experience, as far as establishing a Dr./clientrelatiinship, so my husband will be scheduling his appointment here, also. They do have some evening and weekend appointments available, also.

I have been a patient here for almost my entire life and have always been treated amazingly well. My last visit I was in the room with miranda and we have talked about my health. When she came back in moments later to tell me that my dream of being a mother again were happening. That I was pregnant, I started to cry and she hugged me repeatedly and made me feel so happy. I would recommend this place to everyone. My family, my husband and myself go here and my child will be going here as well.

I have been a patient for about 6 months and needless to say I'm very disappointed. I have been referred to specialists too prematurely, was prescribed oxygen around 1-2 months ago and still do not have anyone willing to order it, I am never told results or action plans unless I ask, I have been poked with big needless instead of the little ones, can't get the doctors to back when I have a significant issue that needs addressing, etc. I would think twice about going to this doctor.

I moved to area 1 year ago and needed a Dr. My husband had used Dr. Gregory for his kids when they were little and really liked him. I decided to give them a try and glad I did. The staff is very friendly and Dr Imhof and the PA Laura are awesome! This is a great practice.
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.
