    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.

Office Needs To Improve Patient Service

Dr. Porter is a very good doctor, however I always feel we are in a race with time. Nurse Aid for doctor does not return phone calls, medical issues are most recently communited by letter not a follow-up call, getting a referral to a specialist is so slow nearly impossible. I'm thinking of finding a another doctor, the administration of this office needs to be overhauled.

Dr. Porter is an excellent doctor, he spends time listening to me, so I have no problem waiting for him because I know when its my turn he will give me the time need. However trying to get a response from his office on a question takes forever if at all. My Pharmacy and I have both left messeages for him and after 4 days have not had a response.
