I began seeing the nurse practitioner or physician's assistant as my medical conditions do not necessarily require the specific expertise of a physician (as I don't need surgery or other treatments that can only be provided by a MD). I also found the NP and PA more responsive to my needs than the various MD's that are or have been members of this practice. I am a RN and I began having approximately 5 migraine headaches daily. Since this was unusual for me, I saw more than 1 MD in this practice to request a prescription for Imitrex as I had taken it in the past and it was effective. My insurance doesn't cover Imitrex unless they receive a letter from the care provider explaining why that particular medication is necessary, rather than one of the formulary medications (insurance formulary medicine being a controlled substance). The MD's told me to take Excedrin Migraine which did nothing for my migraines. After having made multiple appointments and being denied Imitrex for no legitimate medical reason, I asked to see the office manager and asked her to refer me to a medical practice that would treat my medical problems. I told her why I wanted a referral and she guaranteed that I would receive the needed care and prescription from this medical clinic. I was given an appointment with the NP and he prescribed the Imitrex. As a nurse, I didn't want to take a controlled drug as I didn't want to be performing patient care while taking a medication that causes drowsiness, lethargy, etc. and Imitrex is not controlled and doesn't affect me the same way as a controlled drug does. I also couldn't live with the number of migraines I was having daily and actually being in such pain that I would be almost blind in one eye. I went through 2 prescription refills of Imitrex and the migraines eventually resolved. Since the complaint, the group has provided excellent medical care and I will attest to the fact that the NP and PA are outstanding diagnosticians. Maybe I have a reputation with the practice as being quick to complain if I'm not getting compassionate and adequate medical care, but my complaint was addressed quickly and appropriately. My family (all 8 of us) are still patients of this group and are quite happy with the service.

I have been a Patient at Family Medicine Clinic for 14 yrs. I have never Experinced a long wait in the office or the examining room. The receptionist have always been very curtious to me and the Doctors in there have always been very helpfull in explaining any problem i have had in a way that i will understand. I have never had to wait more then a couple of days if i need to see DR. Singer right away and normally the will get me in that day. ( For all that expcet to see your DR. on a same day appt. should remember that you are not the only patiant that your DR. sees and should see any DR or PA that is avalible and be understanding about it.) DR. Singer and his staff are top notch and highly adored by my family.

I love Dr. Singer to death....but his office staff is TOTALLY Incompetent! The make a huge deal of patients filling out paperwork to update their records - BUT THEY DON'T UPDATE THE RECORDS! Today marks the FOURTH time that insurance information has been given - maybe, doubtful but maybe, they can get the billing correct this time. What the hell is wrong with these people?

A good Doctor is only as good as the staff who supports them. My family has bee going to this office for 10+ years. Doctors seem to come and go frequently and you can imagine why. Patients are greeted with long waits both in office and on the phone. Additionally you can expect an overworked angry office staff member each time you arrive. It is sad. We are looking for a better office, but are afraid of work to transfer if we will find this at another practice. Save yourself the burden and choose another office.

I agree with the first two reviews wholeheartedly! There are not enough employees. I am constantly on hold when I call in. I can never get in to see my doctor, unless I schedule about a month in advance. Also, everyone that works there has become extremely RUDE!
( I actually overheard a phone conversation between the receptionist and a patient on the phone where the receptionist told the patient she could not be scheduled for a physical for four months! The patient took the appointment, but the rude receptionist said the only thing she had was Dec. 24 @ 8pm. (Christmas Eve!) Then she grinned an evil grin and said, "oh, I mean 8am")
The doctors are so rushed they can no longer perform their duty as doctors. I think the office manager has every one there on a tight leash.
Do not go to this practice. Save yourself a lot of grief. Go to someone who cares!

Ive been a pt.here for 2 years and am now seeking a new Dr's office.They always seem put out when you need to speak or try to refill your medication. It takes them at least 3 days. One gal said that she would try to get one of the nurses to call me back but wouldn't' guarantee it because she was extremely busy. What is that all about??? Isn't the Dr. supposed to be there for you?? I will not go back.

Family Medicine Clinic seems to be a little overcrowded. It is difficult to get in with a doctor unless you schedule way in advance, and sometimes impossible to get in the day you call. I have received good care from the doctors but I can only see my doctor if I schedule in advance and that gets a little frustrating. I think fewer patients and more quality care would help this practice.

PROS: good doctors
CONS: difficult to see a doctor on short notice
