"My daughter and I saw Dr Cronsell several months ago. I have personally chosen her because of her biography on the website. I felt like she was going to be understanding of the concerns I had. My concern was giving my daughter more than one vaccine at a time. My goal was to give her one vaccine now and then another a month later just in case she had a reaction then I would know what it was from. This is not an unreasonable request. and according to her she gets the request many times and this aggrivated her. She began to lecture me about how I could give my daughter a thousand vaccines at one time and her immune system could handle it. Whether this is true or not this is not something that you try to convince someone who has concerns. She made me feel as though if I do not get every single vaccine listed that I could not be her patient. In fact she said over and over that she didn't want to fire me as a patient because that would not be the right thing to do but she did not know if she was the right doctor for me. Instead of trying to reassure me she made it about herself. Stuck with my gut and insisted that she only get one vaccine and she was fine and I have continued to get her caught up on whatever she needs but I will not go back to Franklin pediatrics ever. She told me that if I did not use the vaccine schedule provided that I would be listed in the computer has a problem patient and that every time I would call to make an appointment I would be a problem."
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.
