"His so called bedside manner is "look at me" and his ability to treat the whole patient is non existent. I tried to explain I suffered from real OCD and phobias it was hard to find shrinks that I could afford on my pension. He had no problem prescribing zoloft but xanex stuck in his throat. He gave me every excuse from I was too old. After telling him I had pounding in my chest which he ignored saying I hope it is not AFIB and never suggested treatment or explanation of what it is I dismissed it like he did until I ended up in the Hospital in the ICU with AFIB and a pulse of 169. He told me stress does not kill all the cardiologist told me stress does kill. I questioned him and he did not like that I was not an obedient female who accepted his word. He cannot be challenged he is too insecure."
"I saw Dr Brunzie at the co-located Walk-in Clinic, which is also part of the Citrus Memorial system. I was pleased with her care. We selected her as our PCP through the Aetna website, but when I called to make an appointment, I was told that Dr Brunzie only sees walk-in patients. AETNA WEBSITE IS WRONG, she is not a Primary Care Physician!"
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.
