    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.

DR. CHEN FAILED TO CORRECTLY REVIEW THE LAB RESULTS, FAILED TO EXPLAIN THE LAB RESULTS, FAILED TO REFER PATIENT TO A SPECIALISTS, FAILED TO CONTACT THE PATIENT IN A TIMELY MANNER ABOUT THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE LAB RESULTS WHICH RESULTED IN INABILITY OF THE PATIENT OT MAKE INTELLIGENT, KNOWLEDGEABLE DECISIONS ABOUT THEIR MEDICAL CARE. GOOD LUCK WITH DR. CHEN.

Dr Chen did a psa on me in 2009, it was elevated, he gave me high blood pressure medicine to take for the urinary complications I was having. He never ordered follow up psa to see my level. Now, it is 2012, I have switch PCP's...low and behold I have stage IV metastatic prostate cancer. I spend 3 years going their complaining of problems that I now know are related to metastatic prostate cancer...but this is pure neglect.
