    These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured.

When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

Refused

Dr Smith refused to discuss my all medical issues on my first visit. I was told by the Dr and his nurse that he didnt have the time to discuss or even allow me to bring to the table my 5 medical conditions, all of which I take medication for daily, thereby allowing me to go without medication. He would not discuss medications for 3 of the five medical problems, one of which is a medicine that can not be abruptly stopped. When I made the appointment I was sure to tell the staff that I would need time to discuss my complex medical history. The total time the Dr spent the room was nine min. Furthermore dismissed a soft tissue spine injury based on an x-ray. A condition that was previously diagnosed by multiple Doctors including a spine surgeon using MRIs. He also refused to follow thru with the recommended referral to a neuro surgeon that was recommended by a spine Doctor. I would not and will not recommend Doctor Bill Moore Smith to anyone, and plan to change Doctors as soon as possible and file a Quality of Care complaint.
