  • 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.

Dr. Banks was very rude . I was running a high fever he said in a rude manner why are you sweating what is wrong with you. Before I could say anything he walked out of the room came back ten minutes later and said you have a virus you can go. Then left the room never even hearing my symptoms. I would never go back to him again I don't know why he acted like he did maybe a bad day not my fault.

Worse Dr. I have ever dealt with

This Dr. Is a complete idiot, he knows nothing about his patients on their conditions. He is rude and unprofessional along with his staff. He is forgetful and is cluless on a lot of procedures. The office lets every department voicemail get full and dont answee phones or return calls. Everytime i went his rude ignorant front desk staff is talking personal buisness.
