    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.

Very thorough doctor, good bedside manner

I went to Dr. Soto over a year ago for some issues I was having. He was extremely thorough in trying to figure out my medical troubles and also very personable. I hadn't been back b/c I was pregnant and under the care of my OBGYN. Now that I have had the baby, I need to go back to see him soon for some new issues, and am pleased that although the practice moved from the previous location, he is still in the area!

Very disappointed.

He diagnosed me with Type 1 diabetes, which was a correct diagnosis, but the way he went about it was inexcusable. He came up to me smiling and very cheerily told me what I have. I freaked out because I was a skinny 21-year-old with no family history and he offered me no sympathy. He wouldn't let my mother drive me to the hospital so I rode in an ambulance 8 miles or so, which cost $600. Never again.

New patient

On my first visit I was very impressed with a minimal wait time. When the Dr came in I was immediately at ease because his bed side manner was great. The staff was very friendly and caring. I would and have recommended this family practice to friends.

I've been very pleased with Dr. Soto. I began seeing him after Dr. Alana Williams moved. Wait time has been 15 about 15 minutes. I never have a problem getting an appointment if I need to and he takes the time to find out what's going on without making you feel rushed.
