I have been a member of Angie's List for several years, and use it frequently in Tampa. I have since joined the Orlando group also, which is where you get info on Ocala and the Villages, and it's sketchy in those areas, I feel, so far. I have always done well with anyone I used from Angie's List.

I have a couple of stories of how he has gone out of his way to give us the best care. His practice is internal medicine. He is excellent with Diabetes. He is accepting new patients. Number is in the phone book.

I'm still a wannabee but thanks for posting this info. I will make a note as this is the kind of doctor I would like to go to.

I believe in going to doctors that specialize in "internal medicine" and I am a diabetic that needs to be monitoreed several times a year.

After having unsatisfactory experiences with three GP I decided to use my cardiologist to secure lab work, etc. All the specialist I see are attached to the Munroe Medical system because I have found that hospital to be the better in the area.

I moved from Minnesota which is a premier health care state and have been disappointed with the quality of medical care here. However, I really have confidence in his cardiologist. He is a good doc and a good human being
All my docs are over at the Orchard Hills offices on 441. Just as important is the support staff and it has been my experience that doctors and their staff afflialted with Munroe are so professional, delighted caring and efficient They greet you with a smile are engaging and put you at ease

I will eventually look for and find a GP

Default Tricare

For anybody looking for a Tricare provider, Dr. Swartz has stopped working, according to the staff in his office today. Gina, the Nurse Practitioner in the office, is great. There is one physician in that office still.

I can understand your frustration. However, I work for a VERY Large group of Cardiologists as a phone nurse in Indiana and I would rec you do get a GP soon. Insurance frowns on Cardiology trying to take care of things not related to that specialty. For instance when we have patients with clearly an upper Respiratory infection we are no help to them....they would have to go to a "Doc in a Box" and that could be hard for continuation of care....just my thoughts.

I have lived her for over 10 years now and have only recently found a doctor who not only cares for me as a patient and not a number but also is a fantastic diagnostician and if he can't help me he would certainly refer me to someone who could. Dr. Compton is a doctor of chiropractic medicine and also of nutrition and has helped me so much. I think if you give him a try you would be happy. The office phone is 391-9467. Good Luck to you.

I go to Dr. Michael Glick on Bella Cruz. He has (i think) many many patients and a large staff, but I never have to wait. Usually I am in and out in half an hour. He knows me, is friendly and witty and chatty - and careful. Best of all, labs and UltraSound are all there in the same building.

I used to go to Leesburg, but left htem after I sat in the office for an hour before being told the Doctor had left for the day. I was sent to the Emergency room across the street ( I was 8 days post surgery). Lo and behold, I met the doctor in the parking to chatting with staff member. The office staff was always rude. Wrote letters to everyone I could think of, including state medical board. Hope it did some good and you are getting better care.

If you are looking for a Great Chiropractor and are wanting to be treated like a human and not like the next one in line then I would recommend going to Dr. Compton at Compton Chiropractic. He takes the time that is necessary to treat you and really listens to what you have to say and I have never felt rushed.
