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 am skeptic and picky when choosing a doctor. I was referred to Dr. Moniz. My first visit I was immediately impressed. They are flexible with appointments and go above and beyond what their jobs are to try to help you and work you in. If you cancel they don't charge you. They realize things come up. This office works as a team and really cares. The office staff bends over backwards to help you with insurance and educating you. They are very supportive and remember you by name. I read the previous reviews and feel they truly do not reflect this doctor or his staff. They are patient and kind. THEY ACTUALLY LISTEN. On my first visit I complained about breathing and chest pain. Within 5 minutes they were doing an EKG. I am a large person and they never judge you. They treat you with as much respect as they would a family member. They referred me to a cardiologist, set up the appointment and I was seen immediately. Dr. Moniz takes the time to really communicate with you and does necessary tests to really find the root of your problems instead of just treating your symptoms. He always greats you with a smile and believes in working with you to get to the root of your illness. He refers to good specialists when needed. I have seen him for an array of issues and I feel better than I have in years. I have lost weight, managed my stress and blood pressure, got my back pain under control, I can sleep now, I am a happier person , and I know no matter what I throw his way this doctor will do everything in his power to get me well. The fact that they have invested in having an onsite lab, sleep lab, ekg, clean office, kind staff, and convenient hours make this place #1 to me. I have been to offices that virtually do nothing. They incorporate all the factors from your medical history, family history, mental well being, physical well being, and go from body system to system to treat you. He is very thorough. His nurse calls you with lab results the same or next day of appointments and takes the time to discuss all your labs good or bad. These people really care. There is not one person that I have encountered that was not kind, thoughtful and did not do their job to the best of their ability. The woman who takes care of referrals works diligently to find good specialists quickly and helps you to make sure your insurance covers the services. I have always resented most doctors. I feel most of them see you as a number and could care less. I feel like when I go there they are all one big team on my side to help me become the strongest healthiest person I can be. They make medical care convenient. If you want a great doctor who cares with an amazing support staff who cares chose this doctor. You will be well if you listen to his wisdom and Follow his advise. they go way beyond any other doctor's office I have ever encountered.
I saw Dr. Moniz at Midwest Healthcare, and after two visits, I'm transferring to another doctor. He seemed to be a good doctor and a nice enough man, but the entire Midwest Healthcare operation is a nightmare. On my very first visit, I was subjected to extensive drug testing which appears to be a requirement for his patients. Aside from that, he also recommended an endless list of additional blood work which ended up costing me $250 out-of-pocket. My feeling was that he's all about the money since they run their own lab facility. In addition, it's nearly impossible to get through to his office, get phone calls returned, or get refills on medications. On several occasions, wrong medications were called in. I would never recommend the practice, and as previously stated, I've transferred after two visits.
Dr. Paul and his staff are the Best professionalsthat You can have by your side in a time of medicalneed or when you need someone to confide in. Ihave put my life in his hands for over 10 years now.My family and i could not ask for a better Physicianor a better friend. He is devoted to his craft and isa man of faith who is the best of the best to have asyour Family Physician.
my overall impression of this office was very untrained staff and very unprofessional. they also have a "lab" department, my blood was lost and my name was added to some other persons blood. i had my blood taken again by my doctors office and everything was way different. he said the first set must not have been from me at all. how dangerous is that!
