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.

The wait was literally two and a half hours long. My appointment was at 3 and wasn't seen until 4:30 then waited again for another 30 minutes after TWO minute visit with the actual doctor. Didn't get out of the office until almost 6 o clock and had a 3 o clock appointment. They were seeing walk ins over me and also had way too many people double booked. Very unorganized, the female medical assistant was very nice however the male receptionist is very rude and unorganized. He proceeded to say, "sup" to me when I walked in. The doctor herself isn't terrible but I only saw her for a minute because she was so over booked. There is also a strong language barrier if you are not fluent in Spanish. Haven't heard from the office since my appointment and was told we don't have room to schedule a follow up right now, call back another time. I do not recommend this practice to anyone.
Everything was fine until I needed a referral. (I believe his name was Lee). This man acted very condescending in his behavior. I needed an appointment with a specialist that was very important. A week later, still no referral. I went back to the office twice , each time he said he would get to it when he could. As a result I had to reschedule my appointment for 3 weeks later. This man is a problem for the well being of patients and success of this practice.
First let me say the male receptionist was so lazy and unprofessional that he could not even check my insurance to see see if was accepted. I called 3 weeks prior to my appointment. That gave him plenty of time to check the insurance. He waited till I got out of work early and showed up for my appointment to say, I don't think we take your insurance. Nice! Apparently they take my insurance just a different type. So he could have found this out weeks ago instead of assuming they took it and making a appointment. Very disappointed.
