  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. 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.

Unpleasant staff member

I now will never step into that office again. No real problems with the Drs but some new members of their staff are HORRIBLE!!! The icing that topped it off was trying to get a script filled . I was going to be out of soon but due to emergency surgery I needed to get a ride. I was told I could come pick it up and explained my situation. I went to pick it up but it wasn't ready yet. When I called to see if it was ready a bit later the very snippy girl said not at sll and started to give me a lecture again on how I was nervy to call and expect this when they want 24 hr notice. I responded in a frustrated voice that due to surgery .... When she Hung up on me! Immediately following the nurse called to tell me it was ready . When I went to get it I asked who it was that hung up on me and no one came forward. When I explained how unprofessional and rude that was is when she stood up and proceeded to YELL at me!!!!! Another nurse behind the counter came back at me with a sarcastic rude remark. What kind of office staff is this? Obviously in a Dts office people will get frustrated ... Maybe they're in pain maybe a surgery bad news... Show a little compassion and understanding This girl Laurie Patton should Defintelt be retrained or fired for her attitude. For me I'm going home back in bed where I am supposed to be. I thank them for adding more stress to an already stressful situation !

No Longer My Physician

I was a patient of Dr. Gary Dean until three months ago when he diagnosed my ailment the same as his wife's condition as she had the same symptoms I did. She, however, had testing done; I did not, nor did he even suggest it. Three days after my visit, I tried for an entire day to reach him because I was in severe pain and wanted follow-up tests for a diagnosis. I called his office every hour with No response from him or his nurse. I ended up in the ER, which his answering service advised and that he would call in an order. When I got to the ER, they had never heard from him, nor did he show up. After several tests in the ER, I was diagnosed with something totally different than what he initially said. Three emergency surgeries later, my legs are still partially paralyzed. The surgeon told me if I had waited another day, I wouldn't even be here because my condition was so bad. Gary Dean made no attempt to contact me nor did he see me while I was in the hospital for six weeks! He is no longer my physician, and I would not recommend him to anyone.
