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.

    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Whiteneck

My normal DR was not in so they gave me Dr. Whiteneck. I swear he got his degree by mail order. I agree with everyone here on what they have stated and worse. He by far is one of the worse DR's I have ever seen. I should not even say DR. and his name in the same sentence he is that bad. All he wants to do is run tests and bill you. He is unprofessional, mumbles, says I know repeatedly and this office has gone downhill fast. Especially hiring DR's like that. All the good ones are gone from that practice. Time to move on!

Worse Dr I have ever been seen by

My first mistake was not checking this site before I say Dr. Whitneck. I have to agree with all who have posted here. How is this so called DR. still practicing here? Rude, unprofessional, does not have a clue what he is doing. His nurse was rude also and asked me questions that were none of her business. She is a nurse not a DR. I have gone here for years and has continued to go down hill. I ony stayed as it was close to my house. Well after my Visit or lack of with DR. Whiteneck, that is it. I am off to find another DR. and I will be checking back to see if any DR's actually have any good reviews and where you do not have to wait an hour in the waiting room and then at least another 45 Mins in the room. This is the worse DR's office I have been to and I will not be back. Steer clear of this place or you will be write here also.

A 1 is too good. This was the worst Doctor ever. I was just out of the hospital after 4 months. He never requested records for evaluations nor looked at my surgery wounds. All I got when questions were asked was "I don't know"..He also complained how long we were spending. Didn't resolved any issued & billed the insurance $375..I would question if he really went to medical school. Find a real doctor, this guy isn't... .

Horrible Experience

If you enjoy rude and unprofessional people, Lawrenceville Family Practice is the spot. I am not the type of person to complain and I generally shy away from reviewing places but my experience with Lville Family Practice was so bad today that I thought it was only right to share to hopefully prevent another patient from undergoing the same thing. I have been a patient of this office for several years so I was shocked with my experience today. During my appointment, I sat in a waiting room for 45 minutes even though there was only one other patient at the time. Just as I was about to get up and check to make sure I had not been forgotten, I hear the doctor and nurse practioner discussing my case while being callous and unprofessional. As a patient with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and OCD, I am prescribed an anti-anixety medicine and rightfully so. As soon as Dr. Whiteneck (whom I have never met before) walked in, I was subjected to a FULL ON interrogation. Trying my best to be polite, I endured twenty minutes of interrogation and some of the most rude and inpolite behavior I've ever encountered. When explaining my anxiety/OCD issues that brought me into the office, the doctor rolled his eyes and continued to probe me into why I needed a refill of medications I was already on. I walked out in tears feeling like I was some kind of criminal instead of a patient with legitimate and documented anxiety issues wanting help. I will not be returning to Lawrenceville Family and strongly encourage others to consider finding a more considerate and professional doctor

Medical Assistant

I have always truly believed that you had to go to medical school to become a doctor. However, based upon my experience with Dr. Whiteneck I now find that difficult to believe. He is listed as being a Doctor of Osteopathy, I just don't understand how he completed that or any other degree. He is truly on of the densest physicians I have ever had the extreme misfortune to meet. Please don't waste your time or money. I am speaking as a former employee, not as a patient. It is difficult to see patient's you care about receive sub-standard care.
