- 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.

My daughter was skipped over for her appointment, I went to the desk to ask about it and none of the women signing in patients knew what happened. The blond woman went to find out what the problem was and politely sat back in her desk and went on with signing people in without informing us of anything. We left after an hour, I am sure that someone wants and appreciates my business enough to at least be courteous. We waited over an hour for absolutely nothing even though I asked. Dr Skinner is probably an amazing Dr., too bad the ladies in the front could care less about his patients or his business.
I was skeptical about getting "referred" by my health insurance. I asked for someone young and not too old. Alot of my previous drs were of the age of passing away of natural causes but when I went to Dr Skinner fove years ago he was a blessing. Not just for me and all my stupid issues but for my children and foster children as well. He is there for me and my children (including foster). Some people have left negative remarks BUT you cant always blame a doctor for ur problems and ending up in the hospital. I have never once had a bad experience with dr skinner. He changes nursing staff quite often but lacey has been there for quite some te and I can only continue to speak highly of them. Hes never given me false hope. With of medical symptoms they can mimic so many other things that its a gamble even drs have to play BUT I would recommend anyone to Dr Skinner. I have been very happy with him now for the last what almost five years
