- 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.

Dr. Dhar has treated me for the past 6 years and I find her and her entire staff to be caring and compassionate. She always takes time to ask questions concerning my health needs and encourages me to eat a proper diet and exercise. When my labs come back favorable she gives me compliments but when I slip she is there to encourage me to get back on track. She is knowledgeable and I am proud to say she is the primary care doctor for most of my family and many of my friends.
Doctor Dhar does not need to be practicing medicine. She ordered an O and P to diagnose Pin worms. The pin worm in not included in an O and P. The test for pin worm is different. When the O and P came back negative she refused to treat my son for the worms even after she was told we could plainly see the worms. I had to take my son to another doctor to get him treated for pin worms. She also told me I could only talk to her about one thing at a time. She refused to listen to all of my symptoms at once. She told me I had fibromyalgia when I had two ruptured discs in my neck. She told me I had IBS and refused to find out why. She gave me unnessisary medication and I ended up sicker than I was when I first came to her.
I was mis diagnosied for almost 2 years! I would go in on several visits and she was not willing to look at all the symptoms as a whole. She said I could only talk about 2 issues on that visit and I would have to make another appointment. I actually had worms and intestional parasites for over 2 years! VERY SICK. She said i had fibromyalgia!!!
