- 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.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

You can tell she went to medical school in India. She does not listen to her patients. She is always in a hurry. You can tell she is anxious to leave as soon as she enters the exam room. I have saw her twice and she is honestly one of the worst doctors I've ever seen. She does what she wants, not what the patient needs. It's like she doesn't want to be bothered. The PA I had before she came was a better healthcare provider than she will ever be. I have changed to another provider and I regret ever seeing her. It was a complete waste of time and money. I've had other doctors from India who were great but she is not one of them. I'm sure she bought her way into medical school. She is a terrible physician. One of the worst I've ever seen.
