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.

Nobody likes going to the doctor. Dr. Waks absolutely makes the experience like going to visit an old friend. Thorough yet relaxed, engaging, and never makes you feel like you are taking up too much of his time. He discusses options for test results, pros and cons of taking more tests, and will listen to your concerns and address them in a down to earth manner.
