- Hospice and Palliative Medicine
Hospice care & Palliative medicine specialists focus their practice on pain management, symptom relief and qualify-of-life treatments to relieve the suffering of terminally ill patients. These doctors have specialized expertise in the treatment of patients with serious illnesses, advanced diseases and conditions resulting from catastrophic injury. Though often they work within hospice settings, they prevent and alleviate suffering appropriate at any age and stage of disease and can work alongside practitioners providing curative treatments.
Hospice care & Palliative medicine focuses on depression, pain, fatigue, constipation, nausea, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and difficulty sleeping, among other conditions. They also alleviate psychosocial distress and other stressors that accompany terminal illnesses. They are skilled in guiding families through legal and ethical decision-making in end-of-life care and can address spiritual issues at these times. By coordinating care across settings by improving communication among providers, they improve access to information for families so that they understand the patient's condition and treatment options.
- 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.

Dr Valentine is amazing, though his staff is rude, unprofessional, disrespectful and condescending. His MA Kristy is a complete jerk, she could care less about caring for people. The man at the front desk send you to voice mail while you are talking...and then doesn't answer when you call back. I needed a referral and the Dr was not in till Thursday and Kristy didn't return a single call , I had to go in and speak to them while they jokes about me in the back office where they knew I could hear them. Would you treat me like this is Chris was in the office? So rude, I'll never come back. Chris Valentine your ana zing but your staff horrendous to deal with.
Dr. Valentine is probably a great doctor....unfortunately I never got the chance to find out. Like most of us, I had to change doctors because of Obama Care. I chose Dr,.Valentine. I called on a Monday, got a recording, left my message and a call back number, but never got a call back. I called AGAIN in the afternoon...left the same message and again, my call back info. Still, no call back. Called AGAIN last night. After listening to the recording 3 times, my husband and I were finally able to understand what the gentleman on the recording was saying and so we left again the call back info. Now, it's Tuesday....no call back. I finally gave up, called a different doctor and of course, actually got a person on the phone and made an appointment. I am a nurse and know how busy doctor's nurses can get....I've been through it! All I have to say is that Dr. Valentine either needs to get a staff that returns phone calls or needs to get more staff if his current staff is "burdened" by too many phone calls from patients.
This doctor is terrible! I had heard that Pioneer hospital was bad, but I went because it was so close. He treated me like a drug addict or a hypochondriac of something. He basically told me that it was all in my head saying that he could find no "organic cause" for my symptoms. He wrote some rude remarks on the referral for a neurologist. I went elsewhere, got a sleep study done, and found out I have sleep apnea. Thanks for wasting my money.
