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.

Dr. Hightower has been my primary care provider for 12 to 13 years and I have never had an unpleasant experience in his office or with him. I have recommended him to friends and some have gone to him and had the same experience.
