"Ever since she merged with the hospital about five months ago or so. They tell her what to do and are also in charge of who works there. And other things that have now taking over the office and shes let them. She's been over worked so several years! She takes on too many patients than she can care for. Now Ive been seeing her for over 20years. She was treating my pain through medication management. I was on pain medication for over four years and a muscle relaxer for two years. Now they NO longer prescribe pain, sleep, anti anxeity, or muscle relaxers even though my muscle relaxer is not a narcotic. I didnt find this out til December. NO one told me this was going to happen NO ONE. Now they gave me 17 days to detox I went from taking pain medication every six hours as well as another one that was time realsed. Plus my muscle relaxer that according to the front desk I was only suppose to be on it for no more than ten days, explain two years to me please? My dose was cut by 80% on my pain meds and my muscle relaxer which was just for the nerve pain I cut completely I never got a refill. I helped my Dad when he did his rounds in detox units in California. YOU NEVER cut your patients dose by that degree. YOu do it in stages to avoid serious health conditions such "fatal" heart attack, shock, seizure, ect... Oh and now you have to wait three to five months to make an appointment. It was her Nurse practioner that saved me. All the symptoms I had been having for years. Come to find out now Ive been referred to three other doctors specialist. Oh if you were one of the lucky pain medication patents the list they provided. All the doctors here in Alamogordo that do pain management are all surgeons they Do not do medication therapy. INstead they cut and also injections. When I was told by three board certified doctors Not TO do spinal surgery!!!! One top of that her new receptions is rude and crude and disrespectful!!! Am looking for a new doctor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a sadd end\r
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.
