Specialties

Dr. Richard M Shivers has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Fantastic Doctor/ Worse Referral Desk in Country

He is a fantastic doctor. I do recommend him. However, his staff really stinks especially on referrals. They will sit on your referral until you call them about it. You can never actually talk to any of them either. It is beneath them.
