    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.

One Star

Dr. Chism and her very rude nurse, Faith, like to give people who are trying to become foster parents a hard time concerning the medical record form that needs to be submitted to DCS. If I could give zero stars, I would.

Common Sense

I've been going to Dr. Chism for 5 years and she is very conscientious , thorough, and fair. She doesn't over prescribe for every symptom and always looks at the big picture using a healthy dose of common sense. She is not going to win the award for best dressed or miss congeniality, but you definitely want her in your corner studying your symptoms to figure out what's wrong with you. She listens to you and expects you to listen to her when she prescribes treatment.

Very knowledgable and thorough. If one method of treatment is not working, she simply doesn't just up the dosage or brush you off as an 'oh well'...she actually continues to research to find alternatives to help solve the problem.
