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.

Primary Hyperparathyroidism

In 1999 Dr. Prymka treated me for an ongoing condition that was diagnosed as anxiety. I suffered severe symptoms that we now know today were the result of what is known as parathyroid rush. Calcium levels measured in the blood are not enough. It is also equally important to have the PTH level tested and a 24 hour urine collection done. It was not until 2007 that my condition was accurately diagnosed and I had a parathyroidectomy to remove the growth that now measured 3.5 cm.This surgery has made all the difference in the quality of my life. The intention of my review is to encourage anyone who has ever been diagnosed with anxiety, and feels certain that an underlying condition is present, to become advocates for their own health care and not give up.
