    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.

Uneducated Endocrinologist

Run!! Dr. Basa is a horrible endocrinologist. If you disagree with her or if you complain about symptoms or side effects she becomes highly offended and defensive. She acts this way even if you respectfully disagree with her! I had high levels of androgens (as shown on blood test) and visible symptoms of a hormone imbalance. She had the nerve to say it was normal!!! Really...so its normal for women to have facial hair and male pattern baldness? Then she gives me a prescription. Meanwhile I'm feeling worse. After my 4th visit I immediately found another endocrinologist and he easily diagnosed me with PCOS just based on my appearance which he later proved by doing the CORRECT BLOODWORK! I am now doing much better and no more freak of nature appearance issues. I believe Dr. Basa knew something was wrong but she just didn't want to treat my particular condition so instead she just downplayed and derailed the situation. This is unethical. All she had to do was refer me to someone else if she didn't feel confident enough to treat my situation. Dr. Basa is not capable of treating a wide range of endocrine disorders. PCOS is a common condition in females of childbearing age. Any trained endocrinologist knows to look for this in young women who are symptomatic. I did notice that most of her patients are elderly, and doctors love elderly patients because they are cash cows and they don't challenge the doctor. Poor souls! They come into the office with a bag of pills that they usually don't even need. Also she hires receptionist and medical assistants who are recent graduates. They are totally inexperienced and when you call regarding appointments, labs, etc be prepared to be annoyed and irritated. Its a revolving door each week! She hires these young untrained people because she is cheap! She only has one regular, I believe her name is Brittany. The wait time is entirely too long. This is her own practice and she is the only physician so keep it movin! If you have insurance you deserve better. And if you don't have insurance and forced to pay cash then you really need to run to another endocrinologist! Be safe guys :)
