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.

Love Dr. Velky. Hate the office staff; they are rude and unfriendly. Now that Dr. Velky has had to join University Hospital to stay in business due to the ACA mandates, he is inaccessible for same day appointments for sicknesses. Some UH bureaucrat micromanages his office including staff, hours and patient access. Dr. Velky no longer has any control over his medical practice. He's a UH employee. There is a high turnover rate of his PAs and NPs, so if you get in to see one of them, it's a different person every time and no continuity of care. Then when you need a prescription refill, they will not do it if you haven't been in to see Dr. Velky in the last 6 mos. So you're screwed because you've been denied access when needed, and have to schedule an unnecessary appointment just for a prescription refill. Dr. Velky is one of the best doctors in the area, but UH has destroyed his medical practice and has limited patient access to him.
When I have a real problem I'm always worked in within 24 hours due to asthma and allergy problems; my only concern is weekend coverage - I do not like going to the ER - nor do I like the "hospitalist" that now have taken over in-patient care; I do all I can to avoid a visit to the hospital & ER; I think its a disgrace to the medical community that we as patients cannot be seen by our physician of choice after admission.
Dr Velkey is a good dr, been seeing him for 15 plus years. However the front office staff is terrible. first you have to leave a message and wait on them to call you back. When she finally called back her opening statement was " you do know that in the medical world we use legal first names" and the conversation went down hill from there! I will find a new doctor now thanks!
