  • 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.

Disappointed, Found new doctor

Each time I have had to wait anywhere from 30-45 minutes before ever getting to exam room. Then add another 15 minutes for the doctor. I like him personally but as a doctor he is not aggressive enough in seeking results through Rx or tests or whatever...He seems hesitant to use medications and rarely orders tests or lab work. He seems distracted and rushed to get in and out, if you are over weight(as I am) every problem or sickness is attributed to THAT! Also, his charge for a doctor visit is now up to $118.00, and this is the reduced price for us cash paying patients who do not have insurance to cover the office visits! After 15 years of being a loyal patient, I am moving on. I need my doctor to go the extra mile for both my money and my ailments.
