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.

I have been seeing Dr. Resk for a year now. Her compliance rules are ridiculous they change every visit. All to receive more money. I've paid 500 dollar's for body manipulation which she spent a total of 5 minutes doing that was 5 months ago. She has not performed any body manipulation since then. And she tried to charge me again for a service she performed once. She has no heart! I went there today for my appointment and she wasn't even there.
I went to Ms Resk several years ago for a sore knee. She xrayed, applied a heat lamp and charged me $1200 for the experience. She was her own receptionist. Her sister, the xray technician. They left me for lunch while I was still in the office. I filed a complaint to the medical board and she was sanctioned by that body. I then received a letter from her firing me as a patient. I found the experience very educational, an interesting case study and a valuable lesson about choices I make concerning my health care. I fail to undestand how her license to practice has not been removed, though. The $1200 loss was annoying, the experience priceless. A physician correctly determined that my knee pain was a result of gout. The application of heat was the complete opposite of a correct palliative, as it caused my knee to swell even further. Subsequent attacks were properly dealt with by the application of an ice pack, which reduced my symptoms by two weeks over the treatment by Ms Resk. I am now on allopurinol, which has eliminated the gouty episodes.
I went to this doctor a few years ago and it was a horrid experience. The doctor falsely represented herself as knowledgeable about thyroid disease. It quickly became apparent she was CLUELESS. Next, she took a standard blood test and wanted to charge me hundreds of dollars more than the test normally costs. She was quite greedy! When I complained about the over-charge, she threw my blood test vials in the garbage! I was anemic at the time and very sick from thyroid disease. It was apparent she had probably driven away her receptionist, since there was none. I filed a complaint regarding this doctor and would NEVER recommend her. I would rate everything zero stars if possible.
Both my husband and both called inquiring about ozone therapy for chronic lyme disease and was treated very poorly by the receptionist. She is very angry. From our long experience with a slew of medical doctors all over the nation, we do not trust an environment that favors poor treatment of potential patients.
