Dr. Valerie M Small has the following 1 specialty

  • 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. Small is wonderful!

Dr. Small just not just treat the physical symptoms..she also treats the whole patient. If you have any issue, she addresses it in a caring, compassionate manner. Her treatment of my daughter was very caring and took the time to talk to her on a one to one basis. I would follow this doctor forever.

local patient

Set to have test done. She does not get back with results.If you call she said there was nothing wrong in test.Spends time with you but is combative if you ask questions that challenge her actions. Favorite word when you express your response to the way she treats is "miscommunitcation". Her office is on Durham Rd in Guilford not Boston Post Rd
