- 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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Piers from about the time he started practicing. He has been brilliant from the beginning and grows in knowledge constantly. Keeps up on everything, and if he doesn't know something or feels the need to check with another dr he doesn't hesitate to do that. His beside manner is beyond any I've ever been associated with. He is kind as well as knowledgeable and always makes you feel like you are the only patient in the office. Never rushes you! I have had the occasion to get a rude person on the medical staff but that is rare. I can't imagine ever going to a different doc. I hope I die before he does because it would be devastating to me to have to change docs. Had to do it for a couple of years while out of the country and it wreaked havoc on me!
Dr. Piers is an excellent doctor. He listens to the patient's needs, schedules labs and or xrays, and is excellent on follow up. I am very confident not only with Dr. Piers treating myself but I feel extremely confortable with him treating my parents. I feel Dr. Peirs is second to none when it comes to his bedside manner. When you leave from visiting him at his office all questions are answered and a plan for your recovery is explained to you. I would refer Dr. Piers to anyone in need of a Dr. they can trust and feel confident in the treatment he suggests.
