    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.

Doctor who only cares about money

We have been a patient of Dr. Lovelady for 7 years . He has now become a concierge doctor. If you don't want to pay the $1600/year bribe money you will need to find another doctor. And if you are seeing another doctor in that same practice be prepared to pay just to have a prescription written. I guess medicine is no longer about patient care, it is about the money!

great doctor not so happy staff

Dr. lovelady is incredibly understanding and really tries to give answers. The problem is the front desk and receptionist are sometimes rude. The phone is rarely answered and messages rarely returned. The nurses are friendly.
