Dr. David E Almond has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.<br>These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Unprepared for difficult cases
Self-verified patient of Dr. David E Almond - Posted on August 13th, 2018
I saw Dr. Almond for about two years. I have a difficult to diagnose condition. I went in with my records from the past three years of trying to find a dx. He attempted some basic bloodwork. At that point, things fell apart. His staff were so incompetent that when a specialist faxed and called 6x requesting medical record information they failed to do so. I complained that his staff's incompetence was interfering with care. He shrugged. As the case became more complex, he became more combative and unwilling to do diagnostic work. He has no comprehension of mental health issues, and even missed noting I had a mental health condition I was being treated for in our first three appts. It only registered when I told him a prescription was counterindicative for me. As more evidence appeared that the issues I had been asking about that he kept telling me were "nothing" and to live with it, he became more reluctant to do anything. Ultimately when I asked what I could do to help him see me as a person, with a body with many systems working together for health at more than a single point in time, he found it too challenging and refused to see me again. He may be great for splinters and pink eye, but avoid if you have any difficult medical conditions, things which affect mental health, or happen to be female. His is not trained or prepared for those cases.
