- 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.

As a child, growing up on OKI there were only 2 physicians available Dr. A & Dr. Forstner so my parents chose Dr. A.nWhen a female doctor started working there I was asked if I wanted to start seeing her which was fine. Then as physician assistants became a part of the office I was passed to them. Doctors come and go there none ever really staying very long. Although my visits became shorter and less personable my bills git bigger and bigger. Suddenly I am paying before I am even seen and then I started having to pay 20% at every visit. My insurance has a copay but yet I am paying 20% when approached about this the good Doctor had no answer and sent me to the insurance clerk. The last straw was when I over heard a conversation between 2 employees where one was actually being docked in pay because her parent had an over due bill! I immediately asked for my records as if an employee is being treated in such a manner I can imagine what is coming next from this office!
I really like the Dr a lot, and all of the staff I have dealt with when in the office--they are super nice, very personable. However, I had problem having my prescriptions faxed to the online pharmacy. The pharmacy tried for 2 days to contact them unsuccessfully. When I called personally to have it done, first I left a message early in the day, and the call was not returned until the next day. I dealt with someone called "Pat" who was very rude, insisting the pharmacy was at fault, and not them. Each time I tried to speak, she so rudely would speak over me, not allowing me to voice my concerns. I will solve that problem next time by-passing her and asking for a print out of my prescriptions and fax them myself....I have never been spoken to so very rudely by an employee of a business I frequent. It was so bad, if I did not have so much confidence in Dr. Almiral, I would change Dr.!
