Choosing a Primary Care Physician

Hello. My name is Cadence Flowers. I am married to a wonderful man, and we have three children. When our kids were young, they had a pediatrician. All three are teenagers now, and we all have the same primary care physician. There were many things I had to consider when looking for a primary care doctor. We wanted someone that would be able to identify with our children and us adults. Some of our family have health issues that need to be watched and managed.

I hope what I share will be of benefit to you when it comes time for you to seek a primary care physician.
