- 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.

I am unsure of which doctor the other 2 reviews saw becuase the Dr. E Handyside that I dealt with was EXCELLENT. There are chairs in the room for the patient or their family. Dr Handyside comes in, sits on one of the chairs and takes time to really listen to your concerns. His bedside manner was amazing. He was very polite, very professional and caring. I left feeling like he really cared about me as a person. I would recommend him to anyone.
He treated me at the urgent care in maumee, oh. HE WAS A TOTAL JERK and I'm being polite by saying that. I normally wouldn't go to an urgent care but it was Saturday and I was so sick, I needed to see a DOCTOR. I was coughing really bad and once I really got coughing, I was wheezing and felt very short of breath. The nurse had taken me back to the room and took at my stats including my temperature. She said that I had a fever. I told her all my symptoms, etc. When Dr. HANDYSIDE came into the room, he asked me if I had a fever without even looking at the chart! I told him the nurse took my temperature and HE said - OH I would barely call that a fever at all. - After I told him my symptoms he asked me to sit on the examination table where he checked my throat, ears, nose. He only told me to take 2 breaths in while listening to my chest. Didn't have me cough or anything. It took him maybe 1 minute to examine me. Then he sat down and SAID that HE didn't go to MED school for 14 years to diagnose the COMMON COLD and that the PUBLIC should know not to come to the DOCTOR for the COMMON COLD. He said that I, being a massage therapist, should know this. I then told him, AGAIN, that I was coughing so hard that my chest hurt, it was keeping me up at night, and the night before I was scared to sleep because I was coughing so hard I couldn't breath! He said that he would write me a script for codeine cough syrup and I didn't need anything like an inhaler or antibiotics. Then he went on the lecture me about antibiotics and how they aren't used for the COMMON COLD. My friend was in the room the whole time and she couldn't believe what she heard and how he was treating me!!Sunday I coughed so bad I threw up and was having a terrible time breathing, so I went to see MY REAL doctor on Monday morning to find out that I have ASTHMATIC BRONCHITIS! And I did need an INHALER AND ANTIBIOTICS! DR. Handyside is a joke. APPARENTLY He needs to be EDUCATED ON WHAT THE COMMON COLD IS BECAUSE HE DOESN'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THAT AND ASTHMATIC BRONCHITIS. Maybe he should go back to med school for another 14 years. I would not recommend him to anyone! Take my advice and go somewhere else!
