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.

I made an appointment for my daughter whom is 14 for a new client consult. We waited to be seen, which, for a busy practice is understandable. When we were taken to a room to see Dr Dietzgen, she was the most unprofessional family physican I have ever encountered. She was typing on her computer the entire time, spent approximately 5 minutes engaged in any converstation. Asked questions prompted on her computer and then left the room without any conclusion of the visit ect..... She seemed to be really annoyed when my daughter asked her one questions on diet and exercise. She never even asked me or my daughter if we had any concerns or questions. I felt this was a waste of time. I have been an RN for 30 years and never had a more horrible experience with a routine office visit. I would not recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Patricia Dietzgen does not care about her patients and their well being. You are just a number. She barely listens to you when you are speaking, and dismisses your opinions about your own condition. Since she merged with a larger facility the customer service is non-existent. You cannot even reach a live person at her office, just a call center. Not a warm fuzzy feeling by any means. Wait times to get simple prescription refills are taking up to a week, and they always blame it on the pharmacy or the patient. No accountability. I was sobbing and begging to get my prescription filled before the weekend, and it apparently fell on deaf ears. So disgusted with her.
This is not a medical facility if you are looking for long term management of your health. I can't even say they are very reactive to any issues. Instead, you will find that you wait in the lobby for much longer than you are treated. Average wait time for me over the course of two years was about 15 minutes past the appointment time. Average time waiting in personal room, another 15 minutes. Average time speaking with "doctor" or nurse practitioner 10 minutes. 30 minutes of waiting and 10 minutes of service. The final straw was being charged 84 dollars to wait 30 minutes (the average) and then 2 minutes to pick up a prescription refill. While many others may have had a better experience, I can not stand for the services and treatment received. Don't keep going to this place if you hate it. YOU HAVE OPTIONS!
