Specialties

  • 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.

Dr. B is very thorough in his analysis of the problem and spends time with his patients to help them understand the course of action. He is courteous, prompt and has excellent bedside manner. I would recommend him to family and friends.

I just love Dr. B he is very concerned about everyone's health and he listens to you. I would recommend him to anyone. If I call in with a problem they either get his nurse, take all the information and tell the Dr. and usually he's right there to see you. When I first saw Dr. B I was in pretty bad shape but he worked with me and got me all the necessary tests I needed and I really appreciated it. when I went in with stomach pains he told me I needed to go to the hospital and they were calling for me, I told him I had to go home and take care of dogs and I had to PROMISE him I would call the ambulance as soon as possible. Here my appendix burst and I had to have it removed. Then a year later we had to go through the same thing, 2nd appendix surgery. Everyone at this office is very compassionate, caring and treat you like family.
