  • My husband, daughter, sister and family and several friends all see the same family practitioner. Yes, they treat just about everything. Make an appointment for an interview; make sure that the doctor's medical philosophy is a great fit for you.

  • Most of the time a family doc can do general practice items (which include male/female physicals) but for the more intense treatements you will be refferred to a specialist.
