Specialties

Dr. Kurt J Brotherson has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

DR. B. takes the time to understand and properly diagnose

There seem to be endless Dr's in the area these days. Especially at hospitals and their emergency clinics. From my experience with them, if I want a different diagnosis, just go to a different clinic. Dr. B. is the one modern Dr. I've met, with the old school ethic of taking sufficient time, and asking the right questions, to solve whatever problems my family and I have had. Which is why we stick with him. Quality vs. Quantity.
