Specialties

Dr. Karen Peters 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.

Unfriendly, Uncomfortable, personal judgments may cloud diagnosis

Peters had terrible beside manner. She was very judgmental about medications I have been prescribed without a logical basis. Horrific bedside manner and word choices. Had a very bias attitude going into my appointment and did not seem to want to spend much time with the appointment or listening to my answers to her questions. Will never return. Unless you are desperate for a local doctor, just go to one farther east. Also, Secretaries were on personal phone calls most of the time. Didn't need a reminder, but they never called to confirm my appointment the following day like most places.
