  • 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.

Poor follow up

I had a continuing issue. I went in on a Tuesday. Called on a Thursday still having issues. Put off over the weekend. Then given an appointment for Tuesday which the receptionist forgot to write down with another doctor in the service. (Told I had an appointment on Monday before I even called on Monday!) Told when I asked to see the doctor that it would be several days before he could see me.

Left the practice

Initially my experience was good. However as time went on appts with my physician were difficult to obtain, generally handed off to the NP. Follow up calls were as long as 6 mos after a visit. Diabetes care was non existent with not even and HbA1C done in a period of 1 yr.Discharged me from local hospital after being admitted for an intestinal obstruction without f/u instruction or even a bedside visit.Office practices were to charge me 20% of their posted rates, not what the insurance company agreed upon rates. The overcharges then lagged over 12 mos, and not notified of the over charging until we inquired, still took months to reimburse.
