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.
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Dr Jayaweera is a very nice, help thoughtful Doctor. He really seems to care about my overall health, and it seems that it is important to him to help me avoid invasive surgery unless absolutely necessary, even though I'm sure that would make him a lot more money. He helped me a lot to understand better "natural" ways to help take care of myself, from diet and exercise, types of foods to eat, helpful drinks (teas, etc). I have had to reschedule sometimes because he is called in for an emergency or whatever, but I really like his staff and himself. One thing though, is the office is very simple and basic. But now that I think about it, that probably reflects his desire to just focus on taking care of patients, rather than having a fancy office in which treats patients in a more like a factory line. He'll always answer any questions that I have, even those based on internet research I've done re. my condition. Clearly, I trust him with my life, and highly recommend him.
