    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.

Single practice, very little involvelment with community

Not so hot, pretty much self absorbed. Superior attitude with patients.

A little different bedside manner

DeCrona genuinely wants to be a doctor to help people. He doesn't drive a fancy car or live in a huge house. DeCrona is a 'realist' and tells it like it is witout the smoke and mirrors and this often throws people off.. I appreciate it when we are discussing my health. I have been seeing DeCrona for over 15 years and would refer him to anyone I cared about.

Four Stars

The only doctor I've met who ends up taking way more time than is necessary (although he is very ethical and doesn't bill insurance for the longer time). Usually pretty accurate about what is going on and very encouraging of questions and concerns. Will always squeeze me in. Has had some issues with various office assistants. Current one is just kind of weird, former one made me feel like I was intruding if I called.

Wonderful Doctor

Dr. Decrona is a caring, attentive doctor. He takes the time to listen and is conservative in prescribing medication. He is well read and keeps up on the most current medical issues. It's been a pleasure having him as our family physician for the past decade and a half.

quite a character!

Gary (and it is Gary, not Dr. DeCrona) is an interesting guy. Very informal and likes to talk a lot about all kinds of things so you may find yourself thinking he's taking too much time with you, which these days is quite unusual. He really cares about the welfare of his patients and is very knowledgable and not into the whole doctor-as-expert thing. Kind of a dying breed as a solo practitioner. His receptionist, Christy, however, can make you feel that you are bothering her when you call. And it can be hard because as a solo practitioner, it can be hard to get in.
