    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.

Make sure your speaking their languages

If you don't use the buzz words you could die. "Shortness of breath" not " tired all the time "will get you the life saving stress test you need. I had triple bypass when my cardiologist said all I needed was a statin but because it was too late I had to be cut. Very bad for me.

excellent caring physician

i found Dr Carper to be caring and compassionate. He listens well and is not fast to push pills when other measures are appropriate. He genuinely cares and has made any wait to see him worth it as you know he will take the same time needed for you that he did seeing his previous patient. He also listens to guestions, speaks information in easily understandable terms, and offers pros and cons of proposed treatments.
