I've being going to Capital Family Medicine for over 25 years and find Dr. Forsyth to be one of the most though doctors I've ever met. He takes his time and talks with you to make sure he understands your concerns or problems. He cares a great deal about my health and yes he fusses at me about my weigh but I deserve it. He only wants the best for me. I would never consider going anywhere else for primary care.

Dr. Belcea and his staff are the absolute best. We left a wonderful 'small practice' doctor when we moved here from Florida. We looked for months to find something similar here and finally found Dr. Belcea. He is very attentive; following through on any concerns or problems we are having. He has a great, accommodating staff. I am thrilled we found him!

They're friendly and it's easy to schedule an appointment in a reasonable time period. They have however given me 3 different doctors in a year so I have to explain my symptoms again every time.

The nurse practitioner I see there is very helpful, however the receptionist at the front desk are rude and are of little help.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
