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 have been going to Dr. Guyette for years and have always appreciated her - her thoroughness and wholistic approach. She is clearly very knowledgeable. But lately i have lost confidence in her and plan to shop for a new doctor. A year ago, she ordered an expensive MRI that turned out to be unnecessary and had even noted the wrong body area in the order, causing me to stop the radiologist mid-process to correct the order. Then any sort of follow up communication with her about my treatment needs was very cumbersome. I had to figure out my own course of treatment. Recently, I saw her for an infection and she was snarky and condescending when I tried to ask questions making me afraid to ask further questions. She is not usually like that, but the appt was very disconcerting. So these experiences have prompted me to look elsewhere now. PS. She's now practicing at Pacific Medical Group in N. Portland.
Dr. Guyette seems like a lovely and caring person. However, my experience with her has been less than stellar. Records weren't tracked, tests were forgotten and there was zero follow up on her side to actually write out the referral to a specialist that I needed to see. I have had to seek out test results, prompt her and her staff for results and referrals. Definitely not worth the hassle.
Dr. Guyette is a beautiful human being. She is soulful and gives you her full attention during appointments. Unfortunately, I decided to find a new doctor because Dr. Guyette is not very good about following up. I also felt that she didn't take the proper time to contemplate complaints or ailments to see if there was a larger issue or if I should be recommended to a specialist. After the same problems kept persisting, I decided I needed a different approach. As dedicated as she is in the 30 minute visit, its just not enough time to make a proper assessment.
my experience is that Dr. Guyette is most caring and also most astute in diagnosing any problems I have presented to her. She gives freely of her time and knowledge. She is very open minded and honest. I have recommended her numerous times to others.
