I've been a patient there since 1977. I've seen Woodbourne Family Parctice change, grow, and move. The care has always been excellent. Yes, I've had to wait here and there but seems like I have to wait everywhere. Part of the waiting is the care given. The doctors don't push me out because my time is up. They continue to listen. Believe me, I've been in there over 30 minutes just explaining my problems. I don't mind the wait. Sometimes, it gives me a chance to relax. Bottom line, Dr Goldhammer saved my life by listening to me and not giving up until I was well again. Thanks Doctor.

Pros: The time taken to listen to me

Cons: Being told to Please Hold 99% of the time, when calling.

I don't appreciate the way the receptionist act on the phone when you are calling. Right when they pick up the phone they say, "Hold please" and you have to wait like 10 min. just to talk to some one. Also, when you get a ultrasound or any other test, it takes doctors way too long just to give you the results. One time just for a simple result, I had to wait 2 weeks. And when I would call asking for the result the receptionist were always rude. They need to be reminded that WE PAY YOU TO HELP US. If you are looking for a family practice that are friendly, do not go to this one!

I never have had any problems with what goes on here except for one thing. Last time I went the wait was over 30 minutes. I wasn't feeling very well and just couldn't stand waiting any longer. The results are alright though.

PROS: good results
CONS: long waiting time

Dr Smith takes the time to listen, observe, evaluate, and really care about her patients. In 2002, when another doctor quickly prescribed weight loss and exercise as the remedy for my fatigue condition, my visit to Dr Smith resulted in her immediate diagnosis of anemia. Dr Smith's quick action led to my early diagnosis of colon cancer as the cause of my anemia. I was surgically cured. Dr Heather Smith saved my life.
Although I moved two-hours away in 2004, I have kept Dr Smith as my primary physician.

Dr. Goldhammer has been a part of Woodbourne Family Pratice for over 15 years.

Dr. Goldhammer personally is a great physician, however the medical pratice he belongs to [and has been an active partner in] has declined *markedly* in recent years.

The pratice is very large now.. .with at least 6 full-time physicians, but the wait times for your appointment are getting increasing harder to schedule easily with each passing year..

Getting an appointment with your physician of choice in a short time period is almost impossible.

In addition, whereas ten years ago, one would wait 5 to 10 minutes for your pre-arranged apointment, now it is not uncommon to find yourself sitting in the waiting room for close to, if not over an hour !

I have also noticed in the past two years..I have not called one time [at all times of the day or night ] without having the phone answered and being immmediately asked if "I can hold please." They also do not have enough support staff either.

This pratice is just too big now for a close "one on one" contact /relationship with your physician.

Add in the pressures of the many HMO's and all of their rules , and the service [and even the demeanor] of the doctors has changed for the worse.

I used to think this pracitce was the best one in the area and referred many people there throughout the years. Lately thought, almost all of them have left to seek care elsewhere due to all of these changes and too rapid growth.

PROS: MULITPLE DOCTORS, MANY SERVICES AT ONE LOCATION
CONS: TOO MANY PATIENTS/ DOWNWARD LEVEL OF SERVICES
