They had a couple of patients in the morning but despite that they took me right away - I did book an appointment ahead of time. She was pretty quick and thorough with my annual examination (which I haven't done one in years), explained why she was asking certain questions. I like the fact they took the typical tests (blood, etc.) there instead of having to go somewhere else on another day. Still have to follow up but overall it was a good visit.

Excelent doctor. Dr. Zhao was very patient and seemed to really try to diagnose the cause of my ailments. He seemed to look at the big picture, ask what was bothering me, perform a few tests and then take the time to thoroughly explain what the problem was. I would definetly be recomending Dr. Zhao to my friends and family.

He's a very nice man. He seems very knowledgeable. He keeps it simple and straightforward, but he is still very kind. There was a very small amount of language barrier, as he has a Chinese accent. He worked to find a medication covered by my insurance. He also agreed to perscribe me 2 months worth because i wouod be out of state for 2 months, and my insurance only worka within the state. I am confident that i was thoroughly examined. He is a little slow on the computer processing side, and the wait time was just shy of an hour after my appointment. I think he is a very nice guy, and some doctors can be very cold. I wouod see him again, despite the wait time.

Queens Primary Care Doctors

A primary care physician (PCP) is responsible for providing initial and ongoing care to patients for a wide range of medical issues. They also assist in health promotion and maintenance. They usually work with specialists and surgeons to provide comprehensive care to their patients. As they are the initial contact for many patients, they are required to give an initial diagnosis, as well as preventative care, by referring to the right specialists. They are also well-versed in educating patients about making healthy lifestyle choices.

 

An individual completes a residency program in either internal medicine, pediatrics, family medicine or gynecology to become a primary care physician after obtaining their medical degree. It can take at least three years or more to complete the postgraduate residency program. Read more about primary care physicians on the American Academy of Family Physicians’ website.

Primary Care Doctor: MD vs. DO

If you’re visiting a primary care doctor, it’s possible that you encounter a provider with either a doctor of medicine (MD) degree or doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO) degree. Doctors holding both the degrees are eligible to practice medicine. However, there is a difference in their training and the way they approach their practices. According to the American Osteopathic Association, a doctor holding the DO degree is trained to view the body as a whole rather than just resolving specific symptoms. DOs are trained to take into consideration the lifestyle, nutrition, as well as the environment of a patient apart from the symptoms. For instance, if you’re diabetic, the treatment plan would include more than just medications, as things like lifestyle changes and nutrition also matter.
