Dr. Joshua M Hixson 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.

if you are looking for a Great doctor look no futher, Dr. Hixson is your guy. I have been a patient of his for 8 or 9 years now. I honestly believe if he wasn't my doctor I would be worse than i am. Dr.Hixson is very very knowledgeable, great with explaining what's going on and listening to my concerns and issues! Upon suggestion from Doc. I went to a specialist concerning my COPD, just to make sure i was taking and doing what needed to be done. After my visit to the specialist he advised me that Dr.Hixson had me on what i should be on and he wouldn't change anything. I believe it is AWESOME that a specialist tells you that your primary care doctor is doing a great job & no reason to come back to him. This specialist also stated no sense to see him again because it cost me more money. Very rare that doctors care about how much money your spending on their visits. Hey 40.00 copay for primary care doctor instead of 80.00 for specialist is a big difference especially when the primary care doctor is doing and prescribing exactly what the specialist would. Also want to mention the staff in this office: They Are All WONDERFUL, from office staff to the nurses!!!!
Our practice aims to deliver the highest quality patient care. We love to hear about these positive experiences. Thanks for sharing this feedback with us!
