"I've been with Dr. Sloan for over 10 yrs. She does have a double standard regarding you can wait for her but if you are late she will not see you. The wait time to see her is very long. Also, the quality under her care has decline. If you do blood work you better make an appointment because you will not hear from the office if something is drastically wrong. You can't discuss any other aliments that you might have at the time. If you made an appointment is for back issue and you happen to have sinus issues at the time of your appointment, she will tell you to make another appointment to discuss the aliment. She says the insurance only pays her for what the appointment was schedule for. It's very disappointing. I had physical in June and it wasn't a good experience. I finally decided to move on. It was hard to due to location convenience but my health and time is more important. "
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.
