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 am a white male in excellent health, run marathons, workout daily, not a person who has any major health issues. The only medicine I take i is Lisiniprill for elevated blood pressure. So I went to see Dr. Babey at North Scottsdale Family Medicine (NSFM) to get my prescription filled, which he did but for Only 6 months, which I did not realize until my pharmacy informed me of this. Now this is the first doctor in 15 years who has required me to come back in just 180 days to refill a prescription. The reason being is that they can charge you another $150 for an appointment. In fact NSFM wanted me to come in every 3-6 months to get the prescription refilled. Resulting in $150 to $450 in additional revenue for them. NSFM is a "Churn to Earn" practice! I want to share with you my refill experience with Dr. Babey. First of all the staff seems grumpy and rude. I arrived early for my appointment and the first thing they ask for is money upfront for your co pay, apparently they don't trust you for the $30. I waited in the waiting room for 30 minutes or 20 minutes past appointment until brought back to see the doctor. Dr. Babey spent approximately 4 minutes with me, never asked me anything, but only told me they were going to take blood for lab tests as my cholesterol was slightly elevated at the previous test, I was completely unaware they were going to lab tests as I did not fast, because having caffeine and other things can elevate your cholestoral making the test inaccurate. He escorted me back to the lab area where I waited until it was approximately 60 minutes into my office visit. I left before the test because I had another appointment. Later I called NSFM to voice my complaints about service and unacceptable treatment practices. I was surprised that Dr. Babey would not call his patient back but instead had one of the office patsies make the call. Although Dr. Babey never really asks you much but TELLS you what you need and how much he will charge you for it. The business patsie called me back about my complaint and was VERY rude and combative. Now I used to be a Treasurer for a large healthcare company so I do know a little bit about healthcare customer service, and this person has no clue what that means. I requested a refund for the $150 in charges since no service was rendered and they refused. It did not cost them anything to not charge me since there was nothing done. I expected to have my prescription filled but came away with nothing but aggravation and being ripped off! They said I was too demanding!! I guess asking for the service to be performed they consider demanding. Talking with other doctors about NSFM not refunding my fee, they were very surprised as they would have done so without a problem. I will probably have to go to court and have the judge decide wether NSFM provided any service to me. I certainly did not get what I paid for. In summary NSFM IS A "CHURN TO EARN" practice with very poor service, rude employees and more concerned about profits than patient experience. I wish I would have read Yelp reviews on NSFM before I went there, the reviews are terrible and now I know why.
