Specialties

Dr. George R Homa has the following 2 specialties

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

  • 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.

Misdiagnosed by gall bladder stones as heartburn/acid reflux. Went for close to 3 years with painful gall stones, thinking I just had severe acid reflux. Took a hairdresser friend of mine to tell me my pain sounded like gall stones!

DO NOT SEE HIM! (If you would prefer to stay alive)

This doctor put me through one of the worst experiences I've ever had. I never thought a physician could even be capable of being this lousy! In short he: 1. Misdiagnosed a serious case of pneumonia.2. Prescribed me medicine that I cannot take. When I told him how severe and terrible my reaction was to steroids in the past he told me, "If you don't want to take it, you don't want to get better."3. The next day after consulting with a different doctor his opinion was that my illness was so critical that I had to see a pulmonary specialist that same day. I had to drive all the way to Temple University in order to be guaranteed that I could see one of these doctors.4. Did not want to listen to what I had to say, acted like I was annoying him.
