  • 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.

Five Stars

We have been patients of Dr. Tess for over 20 years. He is very friendly and spends the time to talk with you and work out any issues you may be having, and he will do additional research to find any additional information to help. He is very knowledgeable. He is a great doctor. His promptness of appointments may not be excellent but that is because he is not rushing his patients to get in and get out. He spends the time with his patients, so just because you waited an additional 15 minutes don't feel rushed on your appointment he may spend an additional 15 minutes with you.

They use an automated system to answer their phones. The wait to see Dr. is too long, over an hour. Making a same day appointment is difficult or impossible. I've arrived on time for appointments only to find the Dr. has not even arrived yet. I have a new Dr. now.
