  • 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.

In my case so far, no followup was necessary. This office gives personal care promptly and efficiently, and Dr. Cole is direct, knowledgeable and no-nonsense. He focuses on what is important and is careful not to over-prescribe since it is evident that he would like to teach/emphasize preventive care. I moved here from Northern Virginia and my health care so far has been MUCH improved here and at Martha Jefferson mammography services.
