    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.

overbooked, uncaring office, poor service

I was referred from a primary care physician. Office staff never answers the phone, you must leave a message and then wait days for a call back. First available appointment was 7 months out. I booked the appointment and planned to wait for Dr. Rizvi only to receive a letter 2 mos before the appt saying appointment had been rescheduled to a different date and time and with a new doctor to the practice. Unacceptable. Good luck getting into see him and expect poor customer service from the appt bookers and office staff.
