  • 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.

My teenage daughter told me Dr. Church made her "feel very safe". She took a lot of time talking with her, explaining and answering our concerns. . She is a very compassionate and knowledgeable doctor, I recommend her to everyone. One of the best doctor I have ever encountered.

Dr. Church doesn't listen and responds with curt answers. Rude is putting it nicely...so rude that I actually got up and walked out. I could never have imagined doing that but that is how upset I was with how she acted. I saw her once in 2012 and thought maybe she was just having a bad day but when I returned in 2013, it was worse. I waited one hour and 15 minutes and when she finally came in the room, she questioned everything I said, typed the whole time onto her computer without taking a moment just to sit and listen. I would not recommend her.

Dr. Church abruptly left a practice which we followed her to her next. When we called for a follow-up appt. we were told by her staff that they "don't know where she is." She has since left her second practice abruptly. We felt stranded..twice.

great patient care! great check-in clerk too

What an awesome provider! Dr Church was so sincere and took every minute of her valid time to answer any/all of my questions. She went over all my lab results and what each lab was for what. I overheard her with another patient when I was at check out how she treated them as an elderly patient and how precious. It was like the patient was her own father! Many thanks for providing the excellent patient care and being so complete with my appointment. I live in Wilmington and drive almost 45 minutes to see my doctor! Don't you drive a distance when you find that someone you love cutting your hair!
