  • 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.

Always positive

Dr. Paulson's first career was as a high school science teacher. It shows, because he is always patient and willing to answer questions and teach us about the relevant topics. He enjoys a patient who does research and brings questions and concerns to the table. Because of this, I always feel like I have adequate time to talk to him, and I don't feel too intimidated to ask a question that's purely for curiosity's sake.
