  • 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.

Good Doctor but in demand

Have seen Dr Marchal many times over many years. Always makes me comfortable and listens. Tries to give you his time but seems a bit rushed because he is in demand. That's something a doctor earns but regretfully makes it tough to get an appt with him right away. I will wait if I can because it's worth it to be treated with some care and thought behind his decisions and diagnosis. Just hope he doesn't retire anytime in the near future. Competence with a good bedside manner isn't easy to find...

Highly Recommend!

I was referred to this doctor when my last PCP acted uncaring about some pain I was having in my wrist. She pretty much told me to deal w/it. Dr Marchal recognized the problem immediately & was shocked that the previous PCP did nothing to correct it. I had this pain for 2 mos & after seeing Dr Marchal, it was gone w/in 1 week! It has never returned & that was several yrs ago! I love him! He has since become my regular PCP. He is a very caring doctor. Sometimes I feel like my time w/him is a bit rushed, but I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a new PCP. His staff is awesome & very professional! Plus his practice becomes an immediate care center after regular office hrs. Can't beat that! I love this practice!
