    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

Great Doctor, Staff Not Competent

Takes forever to get through by phone. Takes receptionist forever to schedule appointment. Communication skills are non-existant. Wait time is ridiculous. Medical Assistants, not LPN or RN 's are used, quality of visit is negatively impacted by this. Once Doctor gets to you, though, he is thorough, kind, competant.
