WOW! Who are you people who give such bad reviews of this place? I have been coming here for over 11 years with none of these issues mentioned. All calls that I make are returned, all meds called in (if I've seen my doc recently) and the chairs in the waiting room have never been sticky or trash on the floor. Yes, sometimes they are SO busy you may be put on hold, but no one has EVER been rude to me over the phone. I have many health related issues and am managed very well. You know, if there are a few drops of urine on the seat, that is NOT the nursing or doctor staff with which to deal. They get very busy and the patients are their first priority. So, wipe off the drops yourself, wash your hands and just go. Then wipe off your own drops. This place is the bomb!!! I HATE that I have to move out of state and leave them all!
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.
