  • Family Medicine

    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.

wrong diagnosis

A doc should never just assume a diagnosis on a persons age. Not willing to listen to family members concerns without getting very defensive. Now his patient is in serious trouble with colon cancer.

He demonstrated poor communication skills, lack of caring and was defensive when asked about treatment options. He did not follow up on problems and did not remember what tests he ordered or the results .
