  • 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.

Great office

I needed to make an appointment and got one within a day or so. Dr. came in and didn't waste any time. He got right to the point and got me a prescription. The staff was very helpful with getting the referral I needed.

Won't be going back. Not recommended at all

Not a very good experience here. First of all, although the staff is very nice, they are incompetent. I must have visited this doctor on 3 occasions, but he was never around, even though I specifically made an appt to see him. I understand, if you are using your nurse practitioners to draw blood and go over results...that's fine. But at least stick your head in and introduce yourself would be a professional gesture. I never saw this man's face. On top of that, the staff charged me $0.25 per page for my blood test result...which is fine. But when I gave them a $5 bill, they couldn't break it. They were running around the office for 5 mins before telling me to go get change at the pharmacy store outside. What?! How about just letting me have the 3 pages for free, people?? But instead, I had to go downstairs to an adjacent building to get change since nobody could break the $5 bill for the 0.75 cents they wanted to charge me for 3 sheets of paper. On top of all this, I specifically asked for an additional test to see what blood type I was. I clearly remember the nurse practitioner writing that down and getting an extra vial of blood for that test. Guess what? When I came in for my test results, a second nurse practitioner said that was never requested. Horrible experience. Incompetent staff...and never present doctor.

Terrible experience

This was our first visit, we filled out the necessary paperwork and sat down. About 15 min later the office manager calls me up because the Dr. had been called in to an emergency and couldn't make it. She said she could "squeeze" us in the following morning at 9:15. We arrive at 9:10, the office is closed, I call the office, goes directly to the exchange and they tell me they should be in within the next 5 min. 20 min later the office manager is finally opening the door. We go in, sign in, pay my co-pay and have a seat. They call us in about 10 min later (we are now about 30 min past our appt time). We are seated in the exam room and told the Dr. will be in shortly, which is completely believable since there is NOBODY else in the office. About 20 min later we are still waiting for him to come in. I go out and ask how much longer it will be, she goes to the back, comes out and says he'll be in within a few min. 5 min later, nothing. The office manager comes in and says he'll be in shortly, and I ask her why she gave us an appt for a time when their office isn't even open, she apologized and said she was running "late". Another 5 min pass, still no Dr., I go out and tell them we are leaving this is ridiculous. Then I ask, is the Dr. even here? The office manager says, he is in his car, on his way to the office! It is now past 10, our appt was at 9:15 (she "squeezed" us in) and he's not even physically in the office?! I was livid! Sidenote: This appt was for my 5 year old daughter, when filling out the paperwork they ask for her social security number, I left it blank. I felt there is no reason for them to have that information. The office manager insisted they needed it because of insurance purposes (even though she has her own insurance card, which I gave to them).
