    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.

spouse of patient

My spouse , 76 1/2 yrs old and has had many surgeries and has chronic pain; has been taking Percoset for 11 years and is the only drug that helps. She refused to write his prescription; ordered a Drug urine drug test which the patient and spouse were told, Positive for marajuana and valium; Pt does not use either. She recommended a drug for spasm and withdrawal from percoset. (1 wk supply)- Pt saw dr. the following day and was told that Marajuana was incorrect; no solution as why the valium... Pt has been off Percoset more than 24 hrs.. Was told to use tylenol...Dr also changed his blood thinner dosage. Apparently dr never heard the statement"if not broken, don't fix it."

A doctor for the dark ages. I just love family medicine doctors who attempts to play surgeon. She knows nothing about surgery needs.

Poor patient/doctor relationship - pre-determined

There is almost nothing good memorable about alberta's meetings. She was insulting and immediately went to prescribing pills that I know are not first defense. Older patients seem to get put into the category of all options that take a little work...off the table. Give'em pills. I found her demeaning and very unpleasant to spend the few minutes she alloted.

Disaster

I was seen by Dr. Laktonen 5 times during a 7 month period, not because I was terribly ill, but because she insisted on giving me 30 day refills on my blood pressure medication. I have been on this medication for ten years and as soon as I transferred care to this so called doctor I met nothing but trouble and overzealous limitations. She places herself on a podium of bad bedside manner and ill will for her patients. As I sat for 45 minutes in an exam room waiting for her 3 minute evaluation and 10 minute self involved speech, a staff member checked in, at this time I inquired about their thoughts regarding her care. Their answer, I would not recommend this doctor to any of my loved ones. SELF EXPLANATORY - even her staff think she is a controlling manipulative excuse of a health care provider.

Care Giver for patient

This doctor has a poor attitude and does not have the ability to listen to the patient or caregiver and make an accurate diagnosis in the best interest of the patient. Unfortunately her egotistical attitude prevents her from understanding geriatric needs and overcoming her shortfalls. example: The patient might be bleeding to death and if Dr. Laktonen decided they needed a sleeping pill, no matter what the patient says, they get a sleeping pill instead of treating the bleeding... Pathetic
