Dr. Jeffrey A Kons has the following 1 specialty
- 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.

Pros: Dr. Kons spends a good amount of time with the patient and explains things in detail that's easy to understand. He also listens when you tell you him what is wrong. Scheduling was easy online. Cons: Follow-up is non-existent and doesn't respond to left messages. Doesn't offer suggestions on next steps, expectations, when to go back in for a visit, or runs enough tests to help diagnose the issue quickly. Lack of communication post visit is frustrating especially when conditions haven't improved and communicated that to him.
Dr. Kons is the best family practice doctor, maybe even the best doctor, I've had. His bedside manner is excellent. I really appreciate how he takes time to explain things without dumbing them down. He takes concerns seriously. He also has great follow-up on questions he has to research. I have to switch doctors because we've moved, and I'm so torn as to whether I should just suck it up and make the drive to keep seeing him. I can't imagine finding a doctor as good as he is.
Dr. Kons is amazing. I've never had a physician spend so much time explaining issues, showing visual explanations and just basic listening to me. It's an eye-opening experience. He zeroes in on your problem, but not before really talking with you and easing your concerns with useful diagnoses. I've recommended him to several friends (including LGBT friends who find many docs unwelcoming) and every single referral has felt the same.
