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.

While I was hospitalized and under the care of another physician, Dr Shan actually stopped by my room on his way out from visiting other patients a few times. Not only that, but he explained things to me that other doctors just hadn't bothered to talk about. His english isn't great, but he does a very good job of making you understand what he's saying, and listens intently when you speak. A very kind and detail oriented man.
I just turned 43 & am happy to report that after years of complaining on deaf ears, I'm happily shareing with whomever listens that I'm feeling better than I have in YEARS... Dr. Shan is truely someone who cares, always listens listening to every word about how one is feeling. You leave his office with questions answered and a gameplan on how to repair the years of damage and neglect one does to their body over the years.... Thank You, Doctor.
