- 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.

He is not an advocate for the patient, but only for himself. I would not recommend using him as a doctor. If you are injured or need help getting medicine, he is not willing to help you. I was dropped as a patient after he made a mistake on my lab work. This was after 2 months of doing lab work and doctor visits, paying for it out of my own pocket. Doctors should not be allowed to discriminate like this.
Excellent Doctor, however be sure to discuss prescriptions thoroughly with his staff because they can issue the wrong type if you don't provide them with details such as requiring liquids in lieu of pills or caplets, so you have a responsibility also. Paul is the best Family Physician I have had in over 70 years. I'd give him 5 stars if that were possible. He is not only conscientious regarding his patients but careful, in follow up care and tests to be sure all possibilities are considered. Highly recommend him.
This is a group of siblings. I continually kept going to the doctor for allergies and they continued to give me prescriptions with no changes in my symptoms over the period of a year. At the urging of my wife, I changed doctors and my new doctor immediately referred me to a ENT doctor who performed surgery immediately due to a large cyst that the primary discovered following an MRI. He felt like if my condition could have been picked up on sooner surgery could have been avoided and I would not have been in so much pain.
