  • 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.

Two Stars

Dr. Caulkins refused to treat me for pain, despite being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. He actually said "I go to the gym every morning before work to help with my pain." Totally unacceptable to tell someone how he treats his own pain. He referred me to a pain clinic and then told me stories about some of his other clients and how they were addicted to opiates. Again, not appropriate to compare me to other patients. He would rather his patients go to the gym at 4:00 a.m. and ask them to suffer rather than customize an individualized treatment plan. He's pretty full of himself too, another privileged white doctor. His staff rarely returns phone calls, and they act like teenagers, most of them are immature and act blonde, for lack of a better description. I've seen other providers in his office and they were way more professional and thorough. It's time for him to retire.

Patient

Excellent doctor very caring, however the front desk staff and medical assistants don't have a clue on what they are doing. I will call and ask a simple question and they don't understand, I have to explain myself 3 or 4 times before they get it then I get inaccurate information from them, I called to let them know and they get very rude and nasty. I have gone in for an appointment stood at the front desk for 10 minuets while they are all laughing out back. I had a physical and had to tell them how to code my blood work to get it paid. I am in the medical office field for over 10 years and never seen a office ran like this.
