"Dr. Richard Dinsdale is a horrible diagnostician\r
After reviewing some standard labs, the extent of the actual examination by Dr. Dinsdale was about 20-25 seconds, when he made-believe he was listening to my heart and lungs--while he was talking. His diagnosis and treatment were entirely incorrect. The correct and apparently obvious diagnosis and treatment were made the next week by an internist who listened to me, ordered more specific labs, and examined me in more detail. Dinsdale should not have a license."
"Dr. Lewis was very understanding, helpful and provided recommendations to assist me in a successful recovery. He has always listened to my needs and provided excellent care as well as his PA's. He provides referrals when necessary, although they could be done a bit faster, but I would recommend him and the Hatfield staff to anyone! "

What is Primary Care?
There are several kinds of primary care doctors. Which specialty you search for depends primarily on your age:
Adults see internal medicine doctors (also called "internists").
Babies, children, and teenagers see pediatricians.
Seniors see geriatricians.
Anyone can see a family medicine doctor.
Primary care doctors see people for check-ups, physical exams, or routine bloodwork. They also help people with chronic illnesses manage their conditions.
Primary care doctors are very important. If you haven?t seen a doctor in a while, you will most likely start with a primary care doctor. If you have medical problems or concerns, your primary care doctor can diagnose you and refer you to the right specialist for further consultation.
