Dr. Sandra Gilban has the following 1 specialty
- 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.

Dr. Gilban herself is a caring physician, but the office in which she works is a joke. I actually left seeing her when I was scheduled to go on a 2 week vacation and the day before realized I only had seven days worth of a medication I take every day (and have been taking for years). When I called the office, I was told that not only was Dr. Gilban on vacation, but there was no way of reaching her. When I explained how important this was and the timing involved, they told me that I could make an appointment with another doctor, but that nothing was available for two days. When I reiterated, again, that this was not a medication I could stop suddenly, the receptionist wouldn't budge. (Luckily, my wonderful ob-gyn knew my history and wrote me a 1mo rX). They seem to have no concept of what a doctor's office is. Be prepared for office staff who act like you're an utter waste of their time even when making an appointment or asking a simple questions. And don't think that if you make your appointment first thing in the morning that you won't have to wait for at least 45 minutes to get seen... but later in the day it's regularly 1-1-1/2 hours.
