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 went in for back pain and immidiatly got asked if i was seeking narcotics. The girl in check in did not know what she was doing kept chit chatting with her co worker, the medical assistant was joking as if he knew me and with no respect the dr took less than 10 minutes with me and i was a new patient denied anything i suggested made faces of dislike and kept grunting as it bothered him to do his job. at the check out the girl was very serious no charisma whatsoever. I will not go back to that office again , dirty small and rude
