    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.

Should NOT be practicing medicine!

I would NEVER recommend Dr. Weckesser! He ordered a serious procedure, an arteriogram of the kidneys, which after the procedure Dr. Weckesser’s staff discovered this procedure was meant for ANOTHER patient whose report was filed in my medical records. When he found out, he stated it had happened before and apologized by not charging for the office visit. Also, the other patient had not been informed of the needed procedure. Medicare and secondary paid twice! His staff does most of the care with him dropping in for 5 minutes. He does not stay in the room during stress tests. There are also OTHER issues with this doctor including several diagnoses in my medical records that are NOT factual! Dr. Weckesser should NOT be allowed to practice medicine.
