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.

I am a patient at Dr. Wiggins office. I have never had a bad experience there. The staff makes you feel comfortable, and both doctors are there for the needs of the patient. I have see the office turn people away if they are only seeking drugs. These doctors, like all others, are trained to know the warning signs of drug abuse.
First, Dr. Shannon G. Wiggins, DO, is a mid-40s FEMALE, Not MALE and graduated in 1997 from MSU's School of Osteopathic Medicine.I feel she is a very caring n compassionate physician overall, who truly does care about her patients. Her problem, to me, is that: she overbooks her appointments/appts. It's a min. of 3 patients to 1 appt time slot, with having only herself to cover all these appts and those who walk in for urgent treatment, as walk-ins are allowed. -Even though she does employ another physician, she does have 2 offices to cover, so there's just 1 physician for each. -This creates a backlog of patients to be seen and one easily ends up waiting an avg of 2.5 hrs before finally being seen by her or her associate.*I've even waited up to 4.5-5 hrs to be seen and have been sent to her other office so I could be seen, after a 2.5 & 3 hr wait at her downtown office. The fastest I've ever been seen is still after 1-1.5 hrs of waiting. -She does check me out thoroughly, this is probably due to my past extensive history in the medical field. PLUS I write everything down to talk to her about for an appt, to make sure my appts with her are thorough and everything is covered until my next monthly/4wk appt.-I think if she cuts back on her patient load or employed the staff she needs be employing to handle her patient load, this will give her more time to spend with her patients, et al.-She also needs to renovate her offices to at least have comfortable + adequate seating for all (its SRO sometimes & she just has hard plastic chairs to sit on), and needs to have adequate heating & cooling, as there's no a/c in the summer time at either office and offices are cold in the winter, except for a portable electric heater, at times. -I believe her overall rating would improve greatly as again, she is very friendly and I feel she does care but is greatly overworking herself to the point her quality of care seems low, as she can't get everything done in a working day.
