Meet the family medicine practitioners

Dosher has more than 100 physicians and other professional providers on the Medical Staff of the hospital. In this issue of Dosher Heartbeat, we feature family medicine. This is the branch of medicine designed to provide basic health care to all the members of a family. The family practitioners below have general medicine or osteopathic medicine training and see patients in their offices. (Alphabetical by name of practice.)

Editor's note: Family practitioners are one kind of primary care physician. The other, internal medicine, appeared in the March-April edition of this newsletter. Read about all members of the Dosher Medical Staff at Dosher.org/Doctors.
