- 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. Driggers has saved my life not once but twice! From a terrible experience at a local nursing/rehab facility where I was given to many different types of a certain drug which caused my body to shut down and I went into a sort of phychiatric dilemma and went into a coma and was put on life support. My husband was told I would probably never again be the person he knew. To the rescue with his wisdom and faith he guided my husband through some very tough times. The Dr. said it was a miracle that brought me back however my husband and I would never have made it through without him. The second time I went to him for Gastrointestinal issues. He thought better and sent me for some tests. Long story short I had an 85% bkockage in my main artery , needed 3 stints of which 2 were sheathed also had a leaking valve. The cardiac Dr. told my husband I had been "sick" a very long time and he was lucky not to have come home and found me dead. D &' staff are the best of the best I love them all very much. Great practice!!!!
My husband and I have just recently moved back to this area,and though we search and search cannot find a physician of Dr. Driggers caliber. A few weeks ago, this writer was in Port Orange Hospital and though I was not a patient of Dr. Driggers, he came to visit me in my room. It was then I knew I would be ok(my husband and I were his patients priorly). Just to see his smiling face! The saddest day of my life was when we had to move and I lost Dr.Driggers as my physician.I have to say to all of you who are lucky enough to have him please treat him right as he is not only a wonderful person who is kind and very compÃ¥ssionate,but is TOPS in the medical field. I know, because I am a medical professional myself! One of the most important phrases he ever said to me was "Don't lose sight of those things that are really important"As far as I am concerned Dr. Driggers is not only a very gifted man, but an awful wise one as well!
