An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Do not go to see this doctor ever! He came to my appt. and told me "I didnt even open your chart to see what's your medical condition or your lab results, procedures etc. and Im not going too". Dr. Provenza is Unprofessional, Inaccurate in diagnosing a problem, doesn't know what he is talking about! Save your money and see someone else!
Pick another doctor if possible

I saw dr. provenza for problems with nausea and vomiting. He barely spoke to me (less than 5 minutes) the first time I met with him. He did tests and barely explained what he found in the report, I found out everything from the nurse. I know that he is busy, but you would think he would at least spend 2 minutes explaining the results! If this is the best shreveport has to offer then I believe I should move elsewhere!
