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.

Very nice and personable. He listens to my concerns and always has an answer for me.
I have been seeing Dr. Heintz since 2008 as my regular physician. He is very thoughtful and listens to your concerns when you see him. His bedside manner is excellent and he dose not push things on you and will even relate if he can while talking to you when it comes to any concerns or wats to even slightly or slowly work on becoming healthier. It is rare these days you can find a regular Dr. that dose not push their views or what they think is best for you down your throat key alone one that remembers even idle conversations you had in the past or show concerns about your mental health when you experience certain types of trauma. Every one needs a Dr. like Dr. Heintz.
This is my PCP, and after having another PCP before Dr Heintz I wish to share that he is the most caring, personal doctor I know as a persons family MD. He is thorough, he cares, he takes his time with you. He oders tests if he feels they are needed in helping him treat you. He will refer you if he feels you need someone other than him which makes a person a better doc vs a worse. Who wants a MD that tries to treat everything while you suffer. Ask if DR Heintz is accepting new PT's, for you'll be very glad. When he is not available, Dr Miller is great if Dr Heintz is out of the office. When he is out, he's usually attending eductional seminars to better treat you.
