When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

Cha Ching, Cha Ching...Expensive and unnecessary

I thought this guy tried to run me to all his pals that were specialist without necessity. I had 2nd and 3rd opinions and they just smiled and said, "You're okay, don't worry about anything" I guess each followup adds up to quite a bit in the long run

Been to same practice for 11 years

My overall experiences are all great. He takes the time needed to hear me out and get to the stated and unstated issues. His staff gets me into see either him or his associate practitioners quickly,when unexpected medical appts are necessary. He has a great bed-side manner and I appreciate the care he has provided to my entire family for the past 11 years.
