Finding a new doctor... in the Lake Sinclair area!

Lots of times in my life when I have made an appointment to see a physician I have had to fill out the new patient paperwork even though I wasn't a new patient.  You see, I don't go to the doctor until I think death is imminent.  When that feeling hits that I could actually die I call the doctor.  Now this is not the advice I so dole out to my family and friends.  When Donald sniffles I tell him to call the doctor and make an appointment.  Well this is just what he tried to do a while back after working through the pain over a weekend. But it was a no go.  They could see him about 30 hours later. 

So I called my daughter and asked who else we could try. Because she is in and out of hospitals multiple times daily in a smaller community she has gotten to know MANY of the local physicians.  And of course she had a recommendation.  So we called Oconee Family Medicine Center.  They were fantastic. 

When I was sick just a few days after Donald (we were having record high pollen count numbers) I also called and while I did not see the same doctor in the practice I also had an appointment the same day I called.  And while I know that is not always possible, it's also not possible to schedule when you get sick.  Our area is not large enough to support a non emergency clinic and you really shouldn't go to the emergency room for something like a sinus infection in my opinion. 

Oconee Family Medicine Center

  • Dr. Roy Deen
  • Dr. Michael Duke
  • Dr. James Smith

Located at 800 West Thomas Street, Milledgeville, GA 31061

I highly recommend this practice if you are looking for a new family physician in the Lake Sinclair area.  Of course I know you'll need to check with your insurance company to see if they are one of your allowed providers (but that's a blog for another day).  But they readily accepted our insurance and we were treated quickly and with respect which is also important to me.

Its important to share a good experience with a Doctor/Office. Many people move into an area and they are not sure who's good and who to avoid (if necessary). Good testimonial Tammy!

I saw Dr. Deen and Donald saw Dr. Duke and we were both well pleased.  And the office was clean, I was seen on time and didn't have to sit in the little exam room for long either before the Dr. popped in.  Much different from what I am used to.

A personal recommendation can't be beat, Tammy...although I worry about you not going to the Dr until you believe you are at death's door...you are truly SuperWoman!  :-)

Karen- I don't like to take pills.  I believe in mind over matter healing and herbal remedies.  I of course realize something can't be healed that way, but I generally give it my best shot first.

I had to smile as I read your postst tooday. I tend to NOT frequent the offices of MDs unless the situation is dire as well. STILL...having referrals on hand is a wonderful idea.
