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.

Waiting period long, attitude changed, loved him for a while

I saw Dr. Thornquist for years...the last time, after many years of being prescribed medications for back pain and headaches, he suddenly said, "I'm not a pain doctor"...now, this was sprung on me when a disc had bulged in my spine and was laying on a nerve. The leg didn't work, but felt as if a tractor was on it..and suddenly I'm told he's not a pain doctor? No, he was not, but he had been treating my pain all along..it led me to wonder if he had gotten into trouble for his prescribing method, always 100 pills at a time. I sent a letter asking for a pain mgmt. doctor referral. No response, in fact, I had an almost impossible time getting any response from faxes in letter form, or phone calls. He went from being a good listener to getting out asap, probably because he was three hours behind schedule.
