- 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.

I have seen Dr. Sharpe a few times and was not sure if we were the right fit, but the last visit confirmed that I will change to another physician. I went to see Dr. Sharpe because I had some chest pains (tightness, hard to breathe of and on, feeling faint, wheezing a bit). Though she followed up with tests for chest pains she did not address this properly with me, she did not explain the possible reasons why I have this chest pain. My blood pressure was a little higher than usual, she didnât advise letâs check this again in near future, she said not to worry about it but didnât explain. I had to go get a chest x-ray and when I came back to see Dr. Sharpe (luckily chest x-ray was quick) she called me in the hallway from waiting room to briefly tell me results are okay, but didnât say what they checked for, for example bronchitis and Pneumonia, I asked to make sure that I didnât have that and she responded no to both. I was in hallway and briefly standing in a room because she had other patients to see. I know there are others waiting but at least take 5 minutes to call me into a room and close the door and address the concern I had. I had to ask why I am feeling this way if it's not bronchitis and she said maybe due to a virus (I mentioned that earlier to her) and then she said itâs Bronchospasm. Based on what I researched it seems it can be due to an allergy or possibly GERD related or can be asthma (surprise me since I donât have this). Since the beginning of the session Dr. Sharpe already diagnose with GERD ( I can tell with questions) because I had chest pain, but I knew I suffered from acid reflux already and advised this feels different and that I was light headed among other things. The Dr. can hear me as well via the stethoscope, this is why I went in for a chest x-ray but unfortunately Dr. Sharpe didnât tell me I hear this and just to make sure you donât have xyz we will have you go in for a chest x-ray, (though I knew why already). From the conversation I had with Dr. Sharpe itâs unfortunate I felt she dismissed my concerns and already came up with her diagnosis before all results were in etc... Seems when you speak itâs best not to say much, and thatâs not the relationship I would like to have with my primary physician, the service is not free and most importantly we go to the doctor for our well-being.
