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.

Recommended doctor in Arcata, Ca

Dr Alston has been my primary doctor for 10 years. He is very professional, courteous, honest and takes time to answer my questions. He has also responded promptly to any messages I have left for him. He doesn't have a great deal of experience when it comes to chronic pain management but is honest enough to tell you that. I highly recommend him.
