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.

I would not recommend this doctor, he was very nice but I was disappointed. I was a new patient with a list of medications and questions that I had for him about my health and he asked me, "Are any of these were urgent, because we don't have a lot of time." He answered my 2 questions knowledgeably but if a doctor is not concerned about my health and doesn't give me enough time to voice my concerns, then it is not a family doctor I want to revisit.
I went to see Dr. Poinsette to "establish" with his office, as one of his colleagues was recommended by a friend of mine. He interrupted me while I was talking about why I was there. My primary concern was some moles I have, as there is a family history of skin cancer. He was more interested in my former doctor (his former partner?) than he was with my concerns. He never even looked at the moles. He prescribed some pills for my back (not my primary concern), shook my hand and said he'd show me where the door was. I've never seen such an arrogant, disinterested doctor as this. I could not recommend him to anyone.
