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.

I concur with the two reviews noted. Dr Palencia is outstanding. He has one of the best bedside manners of any Doc I have used and he really shows compassion for his patients. Even with the threath of "Obama" care hanging over his practice he is still willing to go that extra mile and talk with you about situations and problems. I highly recommend Doctor Don!

Love this doctor!

I agree with the other reviewer- Dr. Palencia is one of a kind! He is not only knowledgeable but WISE. Very compassionate, attentive and talented doctor. Our whole family sees him for our family care. I also recommend him for fertility and hormone issues - his NaPRO certification is a rare find!

He is a one of a kind special doctor that treats you as a person. He will take the time to listen to your symptoms and decide on the correct course of treatment. He is also specialized in NaPro Technology NFP. That is why I choose him, I am staying with him because he is great.
