  • 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.

TOP RATE AND FUN FILLED

I was truly impressed with his knowledge of psychotropic medications. In fact his recommendation worked better than the psychiatrist.

Sneaky with meds. Watch out.

Not my mother's official doctor but has been responsible for some of her medicine prescriptions. Twice now this doctor has deliberately switched her over to extremely expensive versions of her medications. First with a temporary blood thinner that she needed following a surgical procedure. Hip surgery #1 she had Warfarin (coumadin) which worked well for her and was affordable. 2nd hip surgery he prescribed one of the most expensive on the market-- Xarelto-- which was about 5 to 600 dollars for a 30 day supply. Oh, and it was NOT covered by her insurance. GEEZ! Thankfully we got it switched by her surgeon back to Warfarin. Just recently after CVS contacted this guy for a blood pressure med refill we found out he'd done it again. He switched her Metoprolol Tartate, which has been working GREAT and was very cheap, with a MUCH more costly version of Metoprolol (Succinate I believe) without even seeing her. I'm sorry but you don't just switch someone's meds like that. BTW...the difference in price was about 5 to 7 for her Tartate vs about 40 for the other. This is for about a 2 week supply mind you. Honestly, I'm almost willing to bet that this guy (or his office) is gettting kickbacks or something from the pharmaceutical companies to promote certain meds. It happens a lot in American medicine. It's a really sucky practice especially when you're talking about the elderly. My mother doesn't have a lot and THEY keep doing this. It causes her stress, worry and a loss of cash she doesn't have. Why are they allowed to get away with this? Just shows that you have to pay attention to your doctors, prescribers, etc. to make sure they're not screwing you over.
