  • 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.

One Star

Runs late, interrupts and doesn't seem to listen, have required returned visits to get appropriate medication and proper diagnosis, can only handle 1-2 medical problems at a time, does not act very caring nor compassionate, seems distracted all of the time and have to repeat the story often to get him to understand, awkward interaction.
