  • 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.

Looking for a better experience....

First of all, I had to wait 3 months to have a "meet & greet" as a new patient. Then had to schedule an appointment after that for a physical. Waste of time. The office staff never greeted me when I went to the window and were not friendly. There is a slip of paper to fill out and that's it. One time the receptionist called me back to the window for a question and had a mouth full of food while talking. Very unprofessional. Office is dated and so is their equipment. Feels a bit "Mayberry" to me. Dr. Hamberis called me with the results of my blood test and brushed off my results and did not allow me time to ask questions. Then told me to follow up in 5 years. I am moving on to a new doctor with a better staff. Thankfully I have not had anything major come up that I needed care for!

Dr. Hamberis (and other MD's at Riverside) have been our family's MD's since we moved to Greenville in 2001 from NY. A good friend here in Greenville told me about him at that time. Of all of the Family Practitioners I've had in various parts of the country, I rate him absolute tops!

i have known Dr. Hamberis since he was a resident. I think he is a wonderful person. He does however seem to refer me out to other doctors frequently. I would rather just stay within his service. I understand that somethings he in't qualified for, but it seems to me that the only time I am qualified to see him is with an allergy problem.

Concern for Patient MIA for two years

I have lupus and did not think I was actively ill. I haven't been in to see him in 2 1/2 years. I came in this week with headaches, trouble sleeping and a mouth sore, thinking I had an infection. He checked my blood and found my lupus levels were very high. Took immediate action to begin aggressive treatment, while allowing me to recover from home. Follow up is awesome.
