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.

Dr Ona himself is great. Great Bedside Manner and a good Dr. His staff disappoints on every occasion though. I have been going to Dr Ona for years and have been going to him even though I moved 20 miles away. In trying to schedule an appointment for blood work (RX Refills) almost 2 weeks in advance, was told they had no appointments available and I would have to walk in, which I did. It took me 3.5 hours to see the Dr. His front office staff has no friendliness to them at all. They just ask the questions and go through the motions. None of them smile. The main issue I have had on just about every occasion is the office failure to call in my RX once I have gone in for my blood work. On every occasion, I wait a few days then check with the pharmacy, then have to call the Dr office to get them to call it in. The patient should not have to follow up with the Dr office to ensure they are doing their jobs. This is a consistent issue with this office. I have also had this problem where the pharmacy sends the Dr office a request for the refill and they get no response. As such, I end up calling the Dr office again to ask when they are going to send in the refills. Its become such a constant issue now (for years) that I decided to post a review.
I have been to Dr Onas office several times over the past 3 years. Dr Ona himself is very kind and caring. The more time goes on though, the harder it is to see him. I was there two days ago and waited over two hours, and finally saw a PA FOR 2 min! While waiting I was in severe pain, I asked the front desk several times how much longer and they were very rude. St one point I felt I may have been seen more quickly at the ER, so I asked for a refund on my co pay, which is collected first thing. After I asked, the front desk was very quick to say "ok" ( my husband talked me into stAying) when I finally got seen by the PA, she told me it was very important that I immediately go get an ultrasound of my abdomen. I went, got it done and they assured me that I would hear the results by that evening. Well... 3 calls and two days later and nothing!! I will NOT be giving Dr Onas practice another chance!!
Run away as fast as you can! This office billed my insurance for a surgical procedure for a office visit! Of course my insurance refused to pay, so they sent me a bill! Called office told them the charges were ridiculous! Told me to pay immediately, ask them to resubmit with proper ICD9 codes to my insurance, (meaning resubmit with the right procedure/charges)...they refused to resubmit! Next week I got a letter saying I had been turned over to collections, following that got calls from collection agency! Horrible business practices! Unethical! Please do not trust your health to this office, their main concern seems to be overcharging and ripping people off! RUN!
