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.

I agree with what someone said previously that she is NOT a sugar coated just tell you what you want to hear doctor. She is a HONEST and high quality Doctor. She is not there to baby you she is there to get you better. She cares so much about her patients and is so compassionate. She has checked on me even after hours just to make sure I was still doing okay. She is great and just wants you better and not throwing 20 different pills at you like all other doctors I have seen. If you want high quality and a genuine Doctor then she is perfect.
Dr. Vassileva has been my daughter's doctor for 8 years and then I switched to her for the past 4 years. I think she is very personable. She knows my family by name. She is thorough when we have health concerns and doesn't hesitate to send us to a specialist if needed. She is honest and upfront and always listens to every concern we may have before she leaves the exam room. Dr V is an excellent family doctor and I would refer her to anyone looking for a physician.
Dr. V oversees the care of all of my family, including my elderly father and my two children. She is truly a doctor that can treat the whole family. I have never seen anyone work as hard as Dr. V. When my dad is hospitalized, we often see her in the hospital both late at night and early in the morning. I am very confident in her care and unequivocally believe that, without her care, my dad would have passed away long ago. My daughter has a very rare condition and requires specialized care. Dr V never hesitates to refer to a specialist and works closely with them to oversee her care. I have read some awful comments of her and here is what I have to say. Yes, she is busy. One of the reasons that she is is because she is an excellent doctor and cares deeply about her patients. Also, she always allows same day appointments when we call. So, when you have a previously scheduled appointment, you might get annoyed that she is so busy; however, when you need a same-day appointment because someone woke up sick or was injured, you will appreciate that she works so hard to see everyone. A few other things to know. First, she has a very sarcastic sense of humor. I do, too, so maybe that is why I understand her. Second, she is going to tell you like it is. There are two kinds of doctors: ones who sugar-coat and tell you what you want to hear, and ones who tell you the truth, even when you don't want to hear it. Dr. V is in the second category. And, there are two kinds of patients: ones who want a doctor to do what they want, and ones who want a doctor to do what is best. As you read down through the other reviews, keep this in mind. I guarantee you will "see" which kind of patients are writing the reviews.
Dr. Vassileva has helped my wife through Cancer 2X , a chronic pain condition, pneumonia, and knee replacement. Yes we have specialists but Dr. V. always helps me coordinate and she takes care of my wife on a daily basis. She is warm, friendly, knowledgeable and Funny too. she does take the time to talk to you and help you.
