    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.

Do NOT use DR SELF

I've seen this physician for over 20 years! After I got a new cell # & called in to change it the receptionist didn't change it so when my next appointment time came I didn't receive the reminder call. From missing 1 yes 1 appointment they released me from the practice with no explanation! I have a health issue I need medication for, now I'm trying to find another physician who will see me but I'm not having luck seeing as I just lost my job & health insurance. After seeing someone every 2 months for 20 years I think I deserve an explanation. Dr Self wouldn't talk to me only her very rude office manager. I'm filing complaints & filling out reviews so no one else gets treated this way! Her nurse Nancy, is really judgemental & rude, her old nurse, Leslie, was amazing! To be honest Leslie should've been the doctor! She took care of me more than Dr Self. So sad such a thing could happen.

I have been seeing other doctors who would simply not listen to me and what I felt I needed. She listened to me and my concerns and made me feel comfortable . Sometimes doctors can make you feel like another number they have to see and can also make you feel like a druggie and that's not always the case. Patients know their own bodies and we know what we need . Other doctors simply don't care about what you think you need to be treated with. Dr self is not like that and her nurse is awesome as well. Very happy I chose to switch to a new physician ! Would recommend to anyone!

Excellent MD! Brilliant, caring, very knowledgable!

I was having out of control tension headaches & cluster headaches. Before I made an appointment with her, I had to visit the ER twice and then decided I needed a MD. I used her in the past and she is very knowledgable. has great bedside manners & her staff is very impressive. When you need to call & leave a message, they return your call quickly & answers all your questions you may have. I do not have health insurance, i find her charges to be very reasonable. After a week, my headaches are subsiding but of course it does take about a full 2 weeks for the prevention medication to fully work! She is in A+++ doctor in my opinion.
