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.

Best of the best

One of the most caring, smart and quirky doctors I have ever met. There is absolutely no doubt that he is personally invested in the positive welfare of his patients. He is extremely knowledgeable but doesn't talk above the patient. I feel like he is on my journey to improved health with me and not just when the insurance reimbursement clears :-) Truly an A++ physician!
