- 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 was not happy with my experience with Dr Smith. I called for appointments on at least 2 occasions and she refused to see me. My blood pressure was also high when I did visit the office but was never offered any thing to help with that problem I also requested that she contact me so I could speak to her directly regarding my concerns. She never called me. I have changed doctors and am now getting the care I need including low dose blood pressure medication. Although she was a very nice person I was not impressed with her.
I'm disappointed with Dr. Smith, as I've had some recent medical issues and she hasn't been available to make recommendations or answer questions. the nurse practitioner is great, however I would like to have some contact with me PCP, particularly when encountering a serious medical issue. I feel as though my only option is urgent care or the NP. I've been informed that Dr. Smith does not call patients, regardless of what is happening. the only way to reach her is through the portal and the response takes a very long time. It's difficult to even speak with one of the RNs in the office when you call; you're left to leave messages with the receptionist. I've met her a couple of times and she seems nice, but if you really have a medical condition that requires attention or recommendations, follow up and access are very poor.
Dr Smith made me feel completely relaxed, and I was so nervous to go in and discuss my problems since I never goto the doctor! She did not rush me, she made me feel like I was talking to a friend and she really helped me. The whole office staff were friendly and exceptional. I would highly recommend her to family and friends.
