    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. Thomas has been my primary care physician for 30+ years. He is a very caring doctor, one who takes time to listen to you in order to correctly diagnose your health problems. His staff is very caring and professional as well.

Three Stars

The Doctors themselves are very good at what they do. It is their office staff that makes the experience horrible. They will nor deal with faxes from insurance companies, they will not speak with your insurance company over the phone to handle issues, and they will talk to you as if being sick is your fault. I love Dr. Thomas but his staff drives away patients. Especially patients under forty.
