  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Thank goodness I found her!

I had seen three doctors prior to Dr. Shakir. She was easily the nicest and gentlest. She spent the most time with and correctly diagnosed me. I had been prescribed two medicines before, to treat the same symptoms. They didn't work but the medicine she suggested works amazingly well and I can say, for the first time in months, that I am well. It is also the medicine with the fewest side-effects AND she made sure to prescribe me a medicine that is covered by my health plan (100%)
