    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.

Best Doc I Have Ever Had

James Jernigan has been my doctor for just shy of 15 years now. Medically knowledgable doctors are a dime a dozen; the thing that makes Jernigan special, in my opinion, is his gift for communicating. He is not in any way pretentious or condescending or distant like some other doctors I have visited; he's a very likable, approachable, friendly guy. He sets a positive tone that encourages open, frank dialogue. I can give no higher recommendation for a doctor. As for the rest of the practice, I have read the comments here that the staff is less than stellar in the customer service department. This has not been my experience. Everyone from the nurses to the lab techs to the people at the front counter has been nothing short of absolutely professional and courteous. I have thrown a wide variety of special situations at them and have coming away completely satisfied each and every time. Once, when a discrepancy arose between what the doctor prescribed and what the pharmacy filled, the office resolved the matter in minutes. So, as far as I'm concerned, fine bunch of people at that practice.

Save yourself the headaches...

Dr. Jernigan is a good doctor, however, I could not, in good conscience, recommend this practice. Virginia Physicians is a very patient-unfriendly corporation. All you will need to do to confirm this is call their phone number. The message on their recording only BEGINS to tell you what they won't do for their patients. The unfriendly staff will tell you the rest...IF you can wait on hold for 10 minutes or more. This is truly a corporate run business - in it for money, not patients.

Great Doc...

But the office staff needs quite a bit of training in how to be more patient-friendly. They are completely unwilling to go the extra mile or even a little out of their way to help with a problem.
