- 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.

Our family also followed Dr. Hurst from a previous office. Dr. Hurst is more of a quiet type person which can come off as uncommunicative but it's just his personal style. Once you have been his patient for awhile you just know he cares about you. His diagnosis is usually spot on and he knows when you need to follow up with more testing. He takes no chances with your health. For a long time my husband I were self pay and he knew it and he would always take the time to research where we could go or pick up my prescriptions for the least amount of money. Our personal opinion is he's an exceptional doctor.
Our family actually followed Dr. Hurst to MVMG. I appreciate that he listens to you and works to meet your needs but will stand his ground when he feels it is medically important like a lab test or colonoscopy. He stood his ground and my wife had polyps that left undetected could have become something much more serious. Bottom line: he listens, takes your needs into consideration, he cares but will let you know when it is that important, after all he is the expert.
Dr Hurst diagnosed my Hereditary Hemocromotosis which is a serious condition that typically goes underdiagnosed. Wasn't having any obvious symptoms, but without his catching this, I could have developed permanent health problems. Seems like a serious, but nice guy. I've already recommended him to someone and wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
I came to visit to see a doctor about an infection. I was prescribed medicine that has severe side effects of tendonitis, and during my visit, Dr. Hurst never asked anything about my history, which includes ankle issues and carpel tunnel. When I called about the prescription, the office told me to stop and go see my regular doctor, who is still part of the same Strode Family Practice. I just wanted a different antibiotic.
