  • 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.

Dr. Shani saved my husband's life!

Dr. Shani has been our family doctor for about 30 years and we all are going strong. My husband came to her over five years ago with what he thought was a minor ailment and she discovered that his heart was failing. She rushed him to ER where he had a pacemaker implanted on him and he is doing great. She has always given accurate diagnoses to all of us, and if needed, she would refer us to the appropriate specialist. I love Dr. Shani, and I recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great and caring family practitioner. She definitely saved my husband's life and me from becoming a widow.

One Star

The receptionist are the worst I have ever seen or heard of in any kind of office. There are more rules written on the walls like “Cash only”, “we don’t give Pain meds”, We don’t have a fax or e-mail” etc. they have been rude to me and everyone that goes to that office every time I have gone. The only reason I have ever gone there was because my usual Dr was out of town. DO NOT GO TO THIS DR!!!!!!!!!!!!!
