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.

Upon visiting dr. venugopal, it seemed fine at first when she was asking about my medical history. we spent about 20 minutes going over everything. I then explained to her that I needed to see a general practitioner to get the proper referral to specialist that the past pervious dr.s I have seen recommended to me. She apparently found this effensive and started talking down about the doctor that recommened me and wanted me to trial these medications before even giving me a diagnosis. after 15 minutes with her! I politely told her that because this was general practitioners office I would feel more comfortable seeing a specialist (neurology) for a proper diagnosis because when I was in the hospital all 3 doctors I saw and the nurses plus the urgent care doctor I had to see recommended this because of my special kind of migranes. she got offened started slamming the keys when she typed and said she would put in my file Only wants to see specialist and doesn't want any other treatment. I was completely shocked by her childish behavior. everytime I tried to explain she would cut me off to start telling me that I don't need a specialist and I should trial some medication! uh, no thanks I don't want to go on meds without even KNOWING what it is! horrible doctor, rude, pretentious, and childish. I literally had to just walk out of the room because I felt that disrespected. STAY AWAY
The office staff seem like new trainees that barley know how to take vital signs. Then you wait for an hour to see the doctor who come strolling in with her computer, which she focuses all her attention on instead of the patient! I find her to be lacking in communication skills and diagnostic skills. She had made errors in prescription doses causing Weeks of discomfort and alarming symptoms, which were verified as incorrect dosing by another, well respected Dr. when confronted, she was dismissive and just kept typing on her computer. I do not feel safe under this doctors care and will not return. Be aware, this is not a trustworthy physician!
