Specialties

Dr. Richard A Augustus has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Hospitalist

    Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
    Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
    They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

I am so fortunate that Dr. Augustus was on call when I went to the ER. He kept the situation calm and took control. He was able to diagnose a rare condition requiring a rarely done surgery. He spent time with us explaining what was happening. All the hospital staff I was in contact with think he is great. He has really improved West Valley.

giving out to many drugs, not knowing the patients real needs

doctor augustus has been treating my daughter for years. the more he sees her the more drugs he give her. she is at the point of not be functional in the day time. we have talked with his nurse but nothing seems to get through to them that pain killers and 12 other drugs are not the answer. she is going to the hospital about every 2 to 3 weeks for meds. not very happy with the concern of this doctor with his patients.
