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.

Love my Doc !

I have been a patient for nearly 30 years. Love him. He listens , he remembers EVERYTHING, besides your medical records. He asks about my grandson by name , and other family members. He truly cares about his patients. He makes you feel like your the only patient when he is in the exam room with you. Only drawback is the wait time. But he is worth the wait. The girls in the office are Great too. Always a pleasure to visit the office.

Run... Will diagnose you with everything!

This doctor thinks he's high and mighty. Diagnosed me with all crazy things. Gave all this ridiculous amount of medicine. When I went to my new doctor he knew right away what is was. Dr. Napola wouldn't listen to my complaints instead told me my aches were from poor posture and lack of exercise. Turns out I have a neuromuscular disease. Dr Napola gave me so much meds at one point e thought I was a junkie trying to get narcs from him and even called my pharmacy to "warn" them about me.....seriously???. He's nuts avoid at all costs.
