Valdosta Family Medicine
I've been a patient for a couple of years as there are so few options in Valdosta, but enough is enough! I've just wasted 3 hours of my life in their waiting rooms - it's like an obstacle race in itself - there's the normal waiting room in which you have to wait until the battery of your phone dies, then you are weighted and sent to a second waiting room in which you can watch helplessly how other patients, probably regulars, are taken first although it should have been your turn, and the office in itself where you can "admire" the different kleenex tissue boxes until (finally) someone remembers of your existence. Fun, fun, but that is not all of it! Although exhausted and feverish, you have to deal with Do. E. Kaminetsky's obvious lackadaisical nature and his acid remarks. I'm between insurance providers, so he felt the impulse to treat me with clear discontent, he did not perform the regular steps in deciding my diagnosis (I have a cold and he didn't even check my throat, ears, etc., he just established a diagnosis mostly by looking at me). Not to mention that I paid through the nose for this humiliating "treatment"! I'm getting an insurance policy in the next few weeks, but I am determined never to return there. I strongly recommend you to avoid the place, it will make you feel miserable!
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.
