- 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.

This doctor will spend tons of time with you talking about everything and will remember things about your family but when it comes to your medical care he doesn't even touch you. He will go months/years without doing blood work etc on you and he will also forget what he has told you was wrong with you from one visit to the other. He needs to retire!
Most patients do not want to complain about their physician. Even when its supposed to be private, we are reluctant to express negative opinions. Some fear the physician will withhold their care from them. This dr. Was judgmental of the medice I was taking day one. He did not value my previous Dr opinions or plan pf care and was not bashful to say so. My thyroid had not been checked for very long time or if he ordered labs,there was very little follow up. As it turned out, I suffered with low thyroid, and most problems improved with just a tiny pill each day
Dr. Brownfield is one of the most dedicated doctors (along with Dr. Shy) I have ever met. The illness that I suffered from in 1996 almost claimed my life. If it hadn't been for these two men, I would NOT be writing this today! I just want to thank them for giving me a chance at life again. For meeting and marrying my wife, and for seeing the birth of my son. Thank you for all the hard work and unyielding passion to try and cure an almost incurable disease. Thank you for everything! Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
