  • 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.

Completely unavailable to patients

I spent 7 mos waiting for my initial visit to establish with, only to have her office cancel me 4 days before the apt, after I'd gotten an interview by her, several botched earlier appointments that her staff misscheduled and gotten a list of lab work ordered by her done. Now I am going in to see a nurse instead of her. The staff said the nurse does the same thing as the doctor, except won't give out narcotics. I understand she is having babies now and doesn't come to the office much. Don't you think her staff ought to sendsome of her patients someplace else, esp. new ones, instead of the royal runaround. I can only imagine that her huge group practice's owners won't allow this. It is ridiculous and I have much worse symptoms now than seven months ago when I tried to get to see her and establish there. Avoid doctors in Venice if you can; they overloaded with elderly snowbirds and don't seem to have much to offer anybody else.
