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.

A number of years ago, my Mother was in the Nursing Home at the Louisville Hospital. Upon visiting her one afternoon, I found she had had a catheter installed. I was concerned about mobility, long term dependence as well as infection from a permanently installed catheter. I went to the nurses station and asked why this had been done. They allowed me to see the her chart. The chard stated this was ordered by Dr. Ard. I confronted him as to why he would have done this. He told me told me the family had requested it. I told him that was not true, neither my brother, my sister or I had ordered this and that was the only family she had. He became belligerent and told me we just needed to take our mother somewhere else. I contacted Dr. Suttle's and he agreed to be my mother's doctor. He was until the end of her life. He orded this procedure unnecessarily and it could have been life threatening to his patient. He lied when confronted. I did not file a formal complaint against Dr. Ard for his action't because my brother and sister did not want to. However, I have always regretted not doing so. The people of Winston County deserve better than this man. Jimmy Halfacre
