    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.

One of the best.

I have been his patient for many years as was my husband. Dr. Talafuse is a compassionate doctor that listens to his patients and works with them to improve their overall health. Been very blessed to have him as my primary care physician.

Wonderful Doctor and friend.

Doctor Talafuse has been the family physician for my wife and me for twenty seven plus years. He also treated my Mother in St. Francis Nursing Home and hospitals before she died at age ninety six. By the grace of God and his skill he brought her back from the brink.

Five Stars

We have used Dr. Talafuse for over 30 years.....he is great and always has been. I haven't seen him in a couple of years and had the need yesterday. I was quickly reminded about how rude one of his nurses is, Sue Ellen, I believe is her name. She was rude when I had more of a need to call the office alot years ago AND yesterday was no different. She is still one rude lady.
