"Have been a patient of hers for a few years. At first Mrs Kennedy was a very good doctor, but as time went on it was very noticeable that her NP, Mrs Moss had more knowledge then she did. Mrs Kennedy would give you a med that did not work and have you take it for months. Her NP can take one look at you and tell you what is wrong and give you the right med. Mrs Kennedys bedside manner has gone downhill to the point you dont want to see her, you make appointments with the NP. That is sad when you would rather see a NP than your Doctor. If her patients need something done like a shot or a mole removed she sends you to her husband or the NP. Mrs Kennedy's care is horrible, maybe she has to many patients or is under to much stress. She really needs to start thinking about her patients instead of whatever is she thinking. I feel sorry for her patients."
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.
