  • 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.

Frustrated

I left Dr. Owda's office as frustrated and confused as when I arrived. He seemed thorough and confident in his diagnosis, but was not good at communicating to me what was happening and why he was choosing this course of action.

Awesome Physician

Dr. Owda, was very sensitive to my situation. He was able to not only diagnose (a new term I learned from him). But give me direction in my diet understanding my cultural background and my thoughts on removing all salt from my diet.... He basically tailored my life to his diagnosis.
