  • Internal Medicine

    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.

It's all about him!

Went to Dr. Dykstra for a year or so. In that time he told me how much weight he had lost and all about how he did it but not once did he listen to my heart, lungs, or do any physical exam other than check my feet for a diabetic response. He spent the whole time philosophizing on how blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and weight are all interrelated. He seldom seemed to know about my chart or blood work and his staff seemed unorganized and not well informed. He was obsessed with signs of nonexistent illnesses but paid little to no attention to a basic physical examination. Not pleased with the level of care I received and will be looking for a new internist.

Not a good fit

I was looking for a regular family doc, not a specialist - someone to go to when I'm sick. Dr. Dykstra thinks he needs to see me every 3 months (controlled asthma). He has ran numerous tests on me and enough is enough. The last time I went, he made me feel like he was a bully. He answered a text message as I sat there during MY CONSULTATION and had the gall to excuse himself after he was finished. His nurse has had her cell go off during my prep time. She always apologizes because she's never ready with test results or has a clue why I'm seeing the doc...unprofessional, read the chart and have my test results ready. I don't like Dr. Dykstra's bedside manner or his pushy tactics to have expensive tests run and then when they come back clear - he's on to the next episode, am done with him. I'll be seeing a specialist for the asthma and as needed, not as dictated.
