"Do NOT choose this doctor. The first time I met this doctor he was not very welcoming at all. I was in the patient room and he walks in and doesn't even say hi and introduce himself. He was staring at him for 2 whole minute waiting for him to say hi or even acknowledge I was sitting there 3 feet next to him. The first thing he says is what is your date of birth. This may seem minor to some but it show his bedside manner. He doesn't care about his patients. I'm paying him monthly for this kind of service. Not anymore.I was given this doctor by my insurance because of my zip code.
His staff is rude too. The office manager is his wife. They run the show as they see fit. They are very over booked all the time. Every time I have gone there I have had to wait at least 30 minutes!! I made an appointment because I plan ahead of time. Why should I have to wait 30-45 minutes to be seen. This happened all 3 times I went there. Why did I keep going back...? Well I had to get a referral, etc.
Very unwelcoming doctor, very long wait, rude office staff, old school mentality, (my way or the highway) old office and not organized. "
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.
