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.

Dr. Tolbert is an incredibly compassionate physician. This may be why her wait time is not always 5 minutes. She spends time with me and makes sure I understand my meds and my diagnoses. Her nurse, Veda, is unmatched in professionalism. Dr. T is bright, but communicates in a way I understand. Her office staff has always been professional to me and she has been very responsive to calls I have made to the office - even after hours. I have recommended Dr. Tolbert to many family members and church friends - and we are all very happy with the care we have received.
I've been a patient of Dr. Tolbert's for years. She's a great doctor, and I can usually get in within a couple of days if I'm really sick. Appointment times for new patients are weeks out. However, getting a message to her nurses or her is like pulling teeth. I sometimes think they fall into an abyss, never to be given to the correct person or seen again. Her office staff has, at times, been downright rude and unhelpful. Other times, you go and you MAY get a smile. Guess it depends on the day. Her nurses are quite competent, and are usually a great deal of help. Wait times vary...I've waited as little as 30 minutes and as much as 2.5 hours.
Any time I went to her office with an appointment I had made at least 2 weeks before that, I still would have to wait at least an hour in the waiting room before even being taken back. On top of the poor time management in their office, they are HORRIBLE about calling in prescription refills. Dr. Tolbert is very hard to get in touch with and doesn't seem too concerned with her patients' well being when I have to call the office three times to get any kind of response from them. She has never once followed up with me after an appointment and when I called to tell them I needed a refill called in after I had just seen her less than 2 weeks before that specifically to discuss my medication refills, they still expected me to come in for another appointment before they would call it in. Ridiculous and unreachable in an emergency.
