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.

Life saving Dr.

She takes the time with you and is not hesitant to order any test necessary. My husband was scheduled for surgery he went to Dr. Launder for a pre check up- he had never seen her before-- she saved his life by finding both his arteries were 99% blocked. He would have died on the table.

Patient

Where are you???? I want to keep you as my primary doctor. Ashame ,a contract with Bay Care makes patients have no choice. Shame on Bay Care. Patients should have the choice of if they want to follow their doctor not being able to find you and Bay Care keeping a secret is totally crooked politics. Again shame on Bay Care for not putting the patient first.
