    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.

Dr. Fountain-Ellis has been the best Dr. I've ever dealt with. She takes her time to ensure the patient understands everything and answers whatever questions you may have. I've never felt rushed by her. I am saddened because I am no longer able to go to her as my insurance changed and her office does not accept it. If they ever start taking it I'm certainly going back to her!
