  • 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.

So lucky to have Dr. Ness in town!

I feel so blessed to have Dr. Ness as our family doctor. He is a true gem. Several years ago, before we were patients, we were on his waiting list, and it was well worth the wait! We had a home birth and he actually came to our house for our daughter's post birth check up, such a help not to have to put a newborn in the car and go to an office.He fully supports my parenting choices of extended breastfeeding, co-sleeping and no-vax.He is knowledgeable in nutrition and homeopathy and wants to treat the whole patients and find root causes, not just treat symptoms.Could not ask for a better pediatrician.

Because I'm a nurse myself with a holistic philosophy, his integrative approach was the reason I chose him as my doctor. On my first visit, he asked me about my philosophy of life. He cares about how I want to live in the world, & what matters to me. We are a team (along with his ARNPs) - in my health care. I trust him with my body/mind/spirit.

Dr. Ness is very patient and a great listener. He is open to ideas outside the mainstream. His style is cooperative, with the patient taking responsibility for him- or herself where appropriate. He is actually an extraordinary human being; the best doctor I have ever known from a human, caring perspective. He would be an appropriate doctor for anyone who wants an open-minded health care partner in their doctor, but not for someone who wants a medical mechanic. He does not act like God, and does not treat his patients as objects. In my experience, he is also quite wise in advising patients on the psychological aspects of health and illness, on the development of healthy attitudes and appropriate perspective.
