    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.

Just wondering how it is possible to get an appointment almost immediately, have virtually no wait time for that appointment and when you see the Dr. you are given undivided attention with no sense of rushing and the utmost sense of caring and compassion. Don't know how Dr. Matson does it, just know that he does. And for years it has been the same way.

Wonderful doctor

I feel like he knows me, takes time to listen to me, explain things and he is very accommodating in terms of making timely referrals. I feel like I 'matter' to him. Wonderful doctor.
