    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.

Unfortunately condescending, not compassionate

Unfortunately my interaction with Dr. Ross was not positive. I attended several appointments with my ill mother, and tried to patiently observe the visits. Each time, I could tell my mother was confused and didn't understand Dr. Ross' recommendations. During the final two visits, I attempted to ask clarifying questions and both times I was rudely brushed off. She gave me the impression that I had no business questioning her, and that she didn't have time for my interference. From reading the reviews, I don't believe she is this way with all her patients, but we gave her several chances, and the interaction with us was consistent. She seems to think very highly of her knowledge and skill, and I guess she would rather not be challenged. We moved on, and my mother is very happy with her new physician.

First Woman to work in the Study of HIV

Like her predisessor Elizabeth Blackwell Dr Ross has been a trailblazzer in North Carolina in the research of HIV. To me she is a significant person especially in the feminist movement.
