- 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.

I had trouble with Dr. Ring-field hardly at all when I first started seeing her. When she was at her office on Hospital road, then one day as I made a emergency visit to her I was ignored and left waiting in the office while everyone else was seen (thanks to her "wonderful" staff) so when she moved to the PAPP clinic I thought things would get better. It would seem she just would smile and nodd at me, not taking into account what I was really going through. When she finally wanted to refer me to a specialist, saying her nurse would contact me to make an app, I never had that call ( I was a minor at the time, I couldn't make the app myself and neither my grandfather). I called back, getting no one. Recently, I was in the ER for the SAME thing I've been complaining about and the DR there referred me to a specialist, (now that Im 18 I can make the app for myself) he told me to get a hold of Dr. Ring-field for a fallow up to let her know what happened. As I called one number on my insurance card, it wasn't hers they referred me..then I got referred again...by the time I finally got her actual office number...No one was available to talk to me. It was a Tuesday, non holiday, at 10: 30 am. I am officially changing Doctors and I am deeply disappointed in her lack of communication. Her office wasn't there when I needed her...and it's just as well, as she hasn't listened to me or spent any time with me in any of our visits.
I should have been more questionable as to why getting an appointments and her wait time was so fast and easy to schedule. She is rude, has very poor bedside manner. I chose her because she worked with both children and adults,was nearby and accepted my insurance. She is terrible working with children and adults! When we would go, my son is usually very sick and pretty complaint, lucky for that, as she could barely look him in the eye and give him that extra attention a child needs because they are scared! I would always take him to the Health Department that worked with children for his check-ups and shots. They always spent plenty of time, give him attention and were very thorough with him but could not write scripts or I choose to only go there! On our insurance cards I listed her as our primary caregiver so it required us to go to only her office until it was changed, which I should have done much sooner! When I was forced to go because I never did change my insurance (until recently!), I would always request the PA instead of her. DR. Primrose-Ringfield is decent at diagnosing some issues, however; she has been wrong, VERY WRONG, several times, causing ER visits as well as going to a Health Clinic DR. who is located over an hour away who I used for myself, but they closed down without much warning. I was forced to return to her and as usual treated poorly. As for the time she spent with me, 3/4ths or more were used putting in my information into her computer, assessing me as quickly as possible, barely answering questions, she seemed like she couldn't wait to get out of the room. It's as if she can't wait to get me out of her office, she has poor eye contact, terrible bedside manner; overall, just plain rude, interpersonal, and unprofessional! Not to mention it seems whenever there was an issue she ALWAYS had difficulty getting back with the pharmacy taking several days to get needed medication! I was having horrible headaches and instead of figuring out what was causing them, she just wrote me prescriptions! With my own trial and error, I came to a conclusion, as did my other DR., that the meds were the cause of my headaches!!! I'd rather pay out of pocket, have to wait hours to be seen or even days for an appointment after my awful experience with her!!! Please don't reply to "justify" her actions, from looking at this board, I am not the only one with issues and am positive I am not the only one who has had issues, the probably were unaware of this board. I haven't been their in a long time and don't plan on ever returning or recommending her! I just randomly came across this board after a search!
