  • 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.

Very kind and caring!

I've been going to Dr.John Vela for over 35 yrs. He and his staff are fantastic, and they've taken wonderful care of myself and my family also! I highly recommend him! Sometimes I have a bit of a wait in the office, but that is because he PERSONALLY CARES about all of his patients and spends as much time with them as they need. He answers any and all questions, no matter how trivial. He always gives an accurate diagnosis. I couldn't find a better Dr. anywhere!

Worth the wait

My family has been trusting Dr. Vela with our health for a long time. He usually has a wait in his office, but he is totally worth that wait. Even when he is behind he takes as much time with you as you need, answering any and all questions with true compassion. With his experience, his diagnosis is always right on target and he does not hesitate to send you to a specialist if necessary. He has taken care of me since I was born and he now sees my two children, and we do not have one complaint with him.
