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.

If anyone is looking for a family doctor, see Dr Athalye. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and kind. My family and I recommend him very highly. And to add something about him as a person - our children won't see any other doctor without a fight except Dr Athalye. We are grateful to have him as our family Doc.
The Best Doc
Self-verified patient of Dr. Rahul S Athalye - Posted on September 21st, 2016
Extremely happy that we could establish our medical care with Dr Athalye. Very patient and very caring. But most importantly, this doctor knows his stuff. Our medical history is quite complicated and he patiently sat with us and went over everything. Made sure we understood. No one else has done that. Only thing is, it seems like he only accepts a limited number of new patients a year. We were fortunate to be one of those. If you need a really solid doctor, I would highly highly recommend trying to get an appointment with Dr Athalye.
Number 1 Doctor.

I generally do not review doctors. But Dr Athalye is hands down one of the best doctors I have met in a while now. I was seeing another doc at a clinic in north Scottsdale and was unhappy with the care I was receiving. My GI doc recommended Dr Athalye. World of difference. Right off the bat, labs were done and I was contacted immediately with the results. Apparently, I've been taking wrong dosages on a few meds! I was taking higher than needed. A bunch of stuff was corrected. My health is much much better. Also, Dr Athalye sees you in the hospital too. My wife was admitted and he was her hospital doctor. Not some random doc assigned by the hospital. Turns out, he sees his patients in the hospital if they get admitted. Whoch makes all the difference since he knows you and your health history. He took care of my wife till her discharge. Honestly, we knew we were in great hands with him and that was the first worry free hospital stay my wife has had. All I'm saying here is, this is one awesome doctor. No question. You can rest easy in his care. He knows his stuff, smart as a whip and most importantly is kind hearted and patient. 10 stars here.

Dr Athalye is a very busy doc which at first concerned me. But took him 2 minutes to diagnose my sickness which 3 other doctors were unable to. These other doctors completely missed what I have and told me that I just have to live with my symptoms. Dr Athley not only figured it out quickly, he made me do the correct tests and now I am doing much better. My health is much much improved. I had lost all faith in medical professionals but now i do believe that there still are some great doctors out there. If you need a really smart Doctor, see Dr Athalye. Brilliant guy. But not arrogant in the least. You may need to be persistent for an appointment with his receptionists because it's a bit hard to get in.

We recently started seeing Dr Athalye for our medical care and we are thrilled to have finally found a great doctor. It's hard to find a really good, trustworthy primary physician these days. Dr Athalye is kind, patient and really knows his stuff. He will tell you like it is and walk with you through everything. He is amazing with children and our kids adore him. If anyone is looking for a top notch doctor, see Dr Athalye. You will be in amazing hands. I generally do not like to write reviews but we really love this doctor.
