Specialties

  • 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.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis.

Worst Doctor I have ever encountered

Dr, Manuel Fonseca made a huge mistake in his diagnosis of me causing me immeasurable mental stress, loss of time for work, and loss of my freedom all without having looked at my skin, my throat, my ears, the pupils of my eyes, Never coming over to me at all!! He asked me why I was there?? He spent approximately ten minutes with me, left to go get the charge nurse and never returned ,yet he made a decision that impacted me greatly having never examined me at all!! He should be reprimanded and consequences imposed for his lack of professionalism, for engaging in fraud with regards to my insurance company and for lying on a legal medical report! I intend to report this Dr. to THE JOINT COMMISSION and the DEPARTMENT of HEALTH and HUMAN SERVICES! I have evidence of his incompetence and will be do everything in my power to see that this person NEVER does what he did to me , to anyone else!!
