    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.

Saw this man for twenty years so glad I don't anymore

I got so tired of having to beg for tests when I knew there was something wrong. I got tired of wondering if or when his office was going to call back. I got tired of waiting forever in the waiting room just have the doctor spend 5 - 10 minutes maximum with me. Got tired of being treated like a whiny old woman when I rarely went in and never for anything that was not an actual problem which only we only found that out after months of begging for simple things like xrays and then he seemed to be pleasantly surprised there was a problem. Made swear of doctors for the most part. Saves me and my insurance company money.
