  • 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.

Terrible Doctor

She is uncaring, unfriendly, and I can't believe she's a doctor. She actually told me that a patient only has 15 minutes with her, and wanted to know roughly how much I was going to take up of hers. She also didn't tell me an important part of a diagnosis. It is like pulling teeth to get her to give medical advice, because I believe she doesn't want to be sued. She has almost no medical advice, and asks me what I would like to have done. She told me to take my medicine as I see fit instead of telling me the recommended dosages. Overall, she is terrible.
