"Went for new patient visit. Needed all scripts refilled. Was not thorough and refilled only one script. Said wait for lab work to refill others. Had enough meds for weekend only and she knew it. Failed to tell me out of office the following week. Said to schedule follow up ---- didnt tell me when. Told office staff for 3 months. Never got new scripts after weekend so had to call only to find out she is out of office. Was told to schedule follow up for next week but next week not available. Doesnt seem to be aware of what she is saying or doing. Very disappointed and will find another pcp."
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.
