- 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.

I have been a patient for almost 8 years now. When I first started going to his office the staff was very efficient and responsive to requests for medical information. I have seen a steady decline in the office staff. Examples are many: 1) Dr. Talieh ordered a special test, the office staff failed to follow through and did not put the order through to the lab. It took 3 phones calls and multiple trips to Dr. Talieh's office to get them to contact the laboratory where the test was to be performed. 2) Dr. Talieh changed the strength of my thyroid medication. The office staff was supposed to call me and inform me of the change, they did not and because they did not I went several weeks taking the incorrect prescription dosage. 3) The most current problem happened today and caused me to write this review. My insulin syringe presecription was up for renewal. The pharmacy called Dr. Talieh's office and the prescription was renewed. I picked up the syringes and I did not look in the bag to verify the type of syringe (my mistake - although Dr. Talieh's office has detailed information on the type of syringe I use and has had this information for the entire time I have been his patient). I was alerted to the problem when I received a phone call from the pharmacy telling me I had a prescription to pick-up. I was told that the doctor's office had realized they gave the wrong information to the pharmacy so they had contacted the pharmacy and given them a new prescription. So, off I went to the pharmacy to return the wrong syringes and pick-up the correct syringes. Imagine my disappointment when I got there and looked at the box of syringes that Dr. Talieh's office had called in for me, they were the wrong ones again. So. the pharmacy now must contact Dr. Talieh's office again in order to try and get me the correct syringes. Meanwhile I am running low on syringes and must now tap into my emergency supply. Unfortunately, there are more problems then just this that I have experienced with his office staff. I am now seriously considering changing to a different doctor. So, if you consider going to this doctor you must realize that you will have to make numerous phone calls and trips to the office to try and straighten out the inefficiency and what I consider to be incompetency of the office staff.
I had 2 appointments with this doctor. First appointment 35 minute wait. Second visit 45 minute wait and I just left at that point because he was seeing another patient and it was apparent that it would be another 15 minutes minimum. On the first appointment he spent 10 to 15 minutes with me and was very perfunctory. I will not return.
