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 went to Doctor Hart because a family member thought highly of him... or was high when he recommended him. The office was very dirty, The shelves containing medical equipment and medicines were disorganized, and it looks like it hadn't been updated since at least the 1970's. There was one person (who I am assuming is the secretary) working the desk. She seemed like a good person, but overall she was over whelmed and very disorganized. Often times she seemed confused when dealing with either myself or other patients. When She took me back to see the doctor, she asked me to provide a Urine sample. Instead of providing me a sterile container for my urine, she told me to go to the water cooler and use one of the dixie cups that were covered in dust on top of the tank. I thought about walking out just then, but I had an issue that I felt needed to be addressed promptly. I went into the back and waited for Dr. Hart to come back to the examination room. When he arrived he did not introduce himself, he simply said "Well what's wrong with you?" I started to explain to him my symptoms and sat there and randomly nodded his head and said "MMMM HMMM, MMM HMMMM, YEP, MMMM HMMM". When I realized He wasn't listening to a thing I was telling him, I said "You aren't even listening to me are you?" Which flew right over his head. I practically had to beg him to look at a lump below my rib cage that was moving up and down. He pushed in and pulled up this lump up and said "thats your rib my friend". These were the only words he really spoke to me. when I asked him if he thought my rib was broke or out of place, it went right over his head and finished the examination. he ordered an exray for my chest and rib cage, and put me on anti inflammation pills. No explanation given for the anti inflammatory subscription. I feel as a patient I shouldn't be left to infer the reason a certain drug is going into my body. About a week after the I had the Xrays done I still had not heard from Dr. Hart's Office. I decided to call and see if they received them yet. The lady working the desk was very rude this time without getting my name or phone number she replies "No we don't have your Xrays yet". I asked her if she could check and she said "SIR, I KNOW THEY HAVEN'T COME IN YET". At this point I decided enough was enough, and cancelled my follow up with the Doctor. I scheduled another appointment with another Doctor who was very prompt and Immediately got the Xrays from the local radiologist. I recommend not going to Dr. Hart and I should have heeded the warnings from the other reviewers on this site. Its not a case of people nit picking or looking to hate bash, this is a case of someone who simply does not care and its shown through his interaction with his patients, the staff he has hired, and the condition of his Office.
I have been a patient for well over 20 years. This doctor has taken care oy myself and many other family members. We to have lost one family member. This loss was not due to his lack of knowledge or skills. It was due to a person not wanting to go forward with a recommended treatment. The doctor did his best to convince him to go to a specialty hospital however he continued to refuse. Dr. Hart was a able to keep him comfortable until his passing. He has also been supportive to all family members through this horrible time. He has a policy that all patients that say they are ill must be seen that day. People therefore may need to wait when he has said for an ill patient must be squeezed in. As to the people that complain about the others not being seen due to lack of copayment I to have seen this however i have heard these people brag about having never paid a penny on their account. They have also said the person in charge has set up a payment plan that they signed and agreed to which is usually insurance required copayment plus five or ten dollars on the balance. People must remember this doctor has signed contracts that say they must collect the required copayment or they forfeit the agreed rate with the insurance company. When the patient is sitting outside smoking and eating snacks they can afford the copayment. I personally have knowledge if this office treating many patients for free. Many of the people that unfortunately lost employment due to closing of plants have received quality care. I agine the person who must ask for copayment many times in a day to be called nasty names and spoken to in. Rey vulgar language and not permitted to respond . Many times I have seen them call to get permission for a patient to go into the back to see the doctor even though they have " forgotten" the agreed to copayment plus past due payment. Each time the person on the other end has allowed the person to see the doctor and remind ded them to please mail tre payment. Never a Thank you to the person who has helped them. Courteous people are treated couteously, rude behavior, and vulgar language is never responded to with anything but did you need another appointment. I would and will continue to recommend this office to people who are courteous and want quality care. I as a patient fill uncomfortable with Nasty people in the office. Meet the doctor and staff and judge for yourself. Being ill doesn't give a person an excuse to be nasty all the time. I have watched these people i the office going to cars to bring people inside because they need assistance and don't want to wait in the office because they don't feel well.
