I think that Dr. Steven Stewart may possibly be the finest family practitioner that my sickly 87 year old mother has ever been to. My mom first met him when she was deathly sick from pneumonia. She was sent to Dekalb Medical hospital where Dr. Stewart saved her life. That was many years ago, and my mom still see's Dr. Stewart as her primary care doctor. Not only is Dr. Steven Stewart an expert in his field; training numerous Emory medical students, but he always treats my mom and I with the utmost respect and compassion. He spends a lot of time with my mom, who has heart and neurological problems, and we think the world of him. He is a great family man as well with the highest morals and ethics. If you are looking for a family doctor who is honest and knowledgeable, please go see Dr. Steven Stewart in Tucker, Georgia. You will not be disappointed.

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.
