- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.
- 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.
- Sports Medicine
A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.

Wait times are not the worst all the time, but the staff routinely screws up the follow ups, calls us days later, can't give us and appointment in a reasonable time period. I have never had such poor service from a doctor. Poor bedside manner, is in and sees you in 5 seconds and is out. Patient care can't be much work than this - I think Dr. Kernan needs to stick to teaching and other things. We have given him well over a year of trial and he and his staff have failed.
My doctor has become emotionally removed from his practice, and his nurse left, and was replaced with an inept disorganized person. Just getting a prescription called into a mail service took several calls, getting physical results for my school, including vaccines, and permission for sports took about 8 phone calls. Ridiculous. Last visit, the resident handled the entire visit, and the doctor came in toward the end, and left abruptly
