- 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.
- Sports Medicine
A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.
It is the responsibility of sports medicine specialist to clear athletes to return to the playing field when they are deemed fit. These doctors also advise athletes on how to avoid injury through proper care of their bodies while training.

Dr. Scott Mial is the best doctor I have had yet. He actually takes time to try understand what is truly wrong or the problem. Most doctors are quick to prescribe medication. I had left him as a doctor because I moved out of the area approximately 8 yrs. ago. I am truly dissatisfied with doctor's I have had after him. I really use him as a measuring tool for quality in a doctor I seek out. To be honest I goggled his name to see if he still practiced in the same location because despite the traveling distance, I want to return to him as a patient.
Dr. Mial is in a league all his own. Although I am middle-aged and have seen more doctors than I can remember, I have never experienced the level of care that I received from Dr. Mial. His bedside manner is superb, but even more exceptional is his concern in hearing the whole story, looking at the problem from every possible angle, and continuing to track down answers until a suitable one is found. His concern is for the whole person, each person, at every visit. In short, he genuinely cares and you can't escape noticing that he is probably taking your problems more seriously than even yourself. I can't rate him highly enough!
