  • 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.

Doc G Rocks!

A doctor who takes his Hippocratic oath to heart. Doctor G is compassionate, intelligent, friendly, wise and experienced. He takes time to listen to your description of current ailment while observing not only your vitals but movements, posture, appearance and overall condition. Instead of the standard approach used by doctors today: snatch up ur co-pay, get u in an exam room, read your chart, listen to ur heart, diagnose with whatever the hot bug is at the moment, throw a few useless scripts at u and show u the door. Doctor Guariglia is A true healthcare professional. Aside from the typical long waiting room queue, I can't think of a negative aspect of this man's practice.

Good doctor, badly run practice

I have no complaints about Dr. Guariglia -- he's intuitive, patient and personable with a common sense approach to medicine -- but plenty of complaints about this very badly run practice: Wait times can run over an hour, sometimes two with an appointment -- the excuse is that they take walk-ins. Staff is usually friendly but badly trained, i.e. giving unsolicited medical advice, which is bad enough coming from someone with no medical credentials, but worse then it's wrong. Incorrectly interpreted information is entered in patient charts by unskilled staff member(s) who take initial histories. Office manager does not welcome complaints and makes excuses instead of corrections, i.e. "we save people's lives" (OK, but that's your job). This is a malpractice suit waiting to happen. I wish Dr. Guariglia would wake up and fix these problems before he's faced with a really serious problem.

My time is valuable too

No one should not have to wait 45 minutes or more past the scheduled appointment, in a room waiting for the Doctor. My time is valuable also. Happens every time, no matter when an appointment is made. Seems overbooking is the norm. Doctors need to value their patients as much as we value their service.
