- 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.

I have been a patient for a long time,and have been thinking of finding a new doctor for a few years now. Zachrich rarely lets you talk to describe why you are visiting, and rambles on a lot, and ends your appointment abruptly without making sure that all your needs have been met. All times I have visited, it's a 30-40 minute wait in the office, with an additional 30 minute wait once you get into the exam room, and then he only spends 5 minutes with you, after making you wait nearly an hour. And I cannot rely on them at all for referrals, as every time they tell me they will send a referral out and promise I should have a call within 48 hours, the referral never is sent, and the doctor whom I was told would be receiveing this referral has no information about me, or have had any contact from Zachrich's office. They are also impossible to get on the phone and you end up waisting days playing phone tag to get an appointment.
Dr. Zachrich is the most selfless and compassionate doctor I have ever been to. I have been seeing him for nearly five years now and I have nothing but positive things to say about him. He has always made time to see me or my family when we are sick and he understands if we need to reschedule our appts when things come up. He is brilliant and always does a thorough work up. He and his staff work hard to help get me or my family members into specialists as needed. I feel grateful to have him as my doctor.
I have been a long time patient of Dr Zackrich and loved him. After leaving Santa Marie he refused to refill any of my medications that were vital for me to be able to function day to day, until I could get settled in a new area. The office is very nice, but getting through to them on the phone is next to impossible.
