  • 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.

Quack

He doesn't listen to patient issues. He's always rushed and doesn't seem to care about patients. I'm glad I got a second opinion after leaving his office.

Leaving. Easy to schedule and confirm appointment times prior to visit but NEVER wait less than 45 minutes. He is competent but dry. His assistant has perma-frown. Very non-personal.

A hole

This guy really has no buisness being a doctor, he doesn't listen or even act like he is listening. He is a grumpy old man who treats patients like they are stupid. Everytime I have had to see him I have had to wait over an hour just hear him say "you really need to lose weight" I'm not even that fat, but that is the answer he gives for everything. You could have a broken arm and he would still say lose some weight. I tried to give this A hole a chance for two years thinking maybe I just caught him on bad days but his bedside manner is horrible. If you want to be treated like a person rather than a paycheck see someone else.
