Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I think a lot of Dr Rowe and really liked him also had a lot of respect for him and his diagnosis, but his nurse not so much. See his office has a sign outside No Appointments Necessary Walk Ins Welcome. That's not so according to his nurse, I have a hard time making appts. and have been to Dr Rowe's office 3 times signed in 1 time at 11:30 to be told they was going to lunch at 12:00 therefore I couldn't be seen (no one was in the waiting room). I was there because of a refill that my pharmacy tried to call his office for for a wk with no response at all (this is for my bipolar meds) things got so bad for me my ins. company called them while I was on the phone then the pharmacy beeped in and said his office just called in the refill. The last time I went in was for my refills and to talk to him about seeing the neurosurgeon because of recommendation for back and neck surgery, I was and am sacred, so I thought I would talk with Dr. Rowe. I was not suppose to be out of bed, but needed refills and reassurance from my dr signed in at 10:30(1person in waiting rm) had to wear back brace all the time and walk with cane also was told not to pickup anything heavier than a gal. of milk til bone density test results were done to see what was going to be the best type of surgery that could be done , lady at desk ask what I needed to see dr for, I told her I would like to get my flu shot, refills and needed to talk with him concerning results of my back and then comes this very rude NURSE an says we don't have them(the flu shots) the young lady got a little embarrassed an said to me we'll probably have them in Oct. I said thats fine the pharmacies are advertising they have them, then the nurse turned ard. and ask the girl what else is she needing the dr for the girl started trying to tell her but all she could get out was refills and that rude nurse said she can't be seen for that today she'll have to make a appt. for that she can only be seen if she is sick. I then got a bit angry considering that I was in a great deal of pain. I just replied to the not SO FRIENDLY NURSE that she needed to take her unconcern self outside and chg. the sign for starters and if she couldn't see that I was in a back brace and finish listening to why I was there, I then just started walking away, the girl ask if I wanted to make a appt. I replied, absolutely not I will just get a hold of my insurance company and find another dr for me this is the 3rd strike. Like I said I really like Dr. Rowe but his nurse does him nor his office justice.
I thought I loved this dr but turns out I can't stand them. My script was stolen so I called them and they can't help so my fiancÃ© found a script of mine with a refill to get me by till my next visit. Well I'm new to the whole dr thing and getting scripts filled, so the pharmacy says they have to call Rowe to see if it is ok and I went back and they said it was ok then his assistant found out and they drop me from there office with not even bothering telling me you can't get a script filled from previous. His assistant is very rood and wouldn't give me an explanation and hung up on me. So now they left me without meds that I have to have. Very poor quality when it comes to a patients well being
Dr. Rowe is the exception to the rule when it comes to the negative stereotypes so many people have about doctors..The wait time was minimal, he is always courteous and never makes you feel like you are being rushed..His diagnostic skills are outstanding..I should know..I'm an RN and have worked with some of the best physicians around ( and some not-so-great ones, too) but I was very impressed when I moved to Gadsden from Miami, FL and found such an outstanding Primary Care Physician. He is friendly, attentive, a great listener, and he doesn't jump to conclusions and just hand you a bunch of pills to mask symptoms..He wants you to get better and to stay well..My kind of doctor!!
