- 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.

I called the office today and mentioned that I was having symptoms of a DVT. The person answering the phone said Dr K could not see me for 3 days. They did not inquire as to the details or seriousness of the symptoms. DVT is a serious issue, which could lead to a pulmonary embolism and death. I am shocked that his staff shows so little knowledge and concern about his patients. I suppose I will go to a walk-in clinic or to the hospital.
DR. Kuenstler was the first doctor I had been to in years, simply because i don't usually get sick. I went in for pancreantitis which was diagnosed at the ER. He asked some questions did a little pushing on my stomach, had blood drawn and said they would call with results in a couple of days. That was on Monday, I never heard from them after calling several times and leaving messages with his nurse on Thursday, I finally got a hold of her Friday afternoon. Then she said "yea I tried calling you Thursday, but there was no answer". No you didn't, and if you did you should have left a voicemail. I went back in because of more pain in a new area and diarrhea a week later and had lost 14 lbs. which I was told is normal and it was still just the pancreantitis. I went in as a walk in so couldn't see Dr. Kuenstler instead saw Dr. Rodriguez. I was shocked at how much he argued with me when I asked if it could be something else that was causing the pain, and that all of this was new pain, and the diarrhea was new as well, but he stuck to just pancreantitis.. I have to go back to have a third set of blood work done and I'm pretty sure I will be finding a different doctor from now on. Dr. Kuenstler wasn't too bad but if I can't see him in an emergency then what's the use
