    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.

Physically assaulted by the receptionist. Avoid this office.

Dr. Bella Sandler was my primary care physician for over two years but I switched as her receptionist literally and without exaggeration assaulted me over a billing dispute. The dark-haired, 20-something lady who works as Dr. Sandler's assistant refused to give me her name when I asked for it as I wanted to speak with Dr. Sandler about the unbelievably rude way I was treated. So when I took a picture of her to make sure I could show the doctor the correct person, this young lady lost her mind. She grabbed and crumpled the papers I was holding and tried to yank them out of my hand, then came from around the desk and physically pushed me to the door of the office--all over a silly misunderstanding of billing that didn't need to escalate. She then called me twice on my cell phone as I walked home saying she was going to report me to the police for sexual harassment. I said to go ahead as I was heading to the police as we spoke. I spoke with the doctor about this unbelievable and inexcusable physical touching and, although she is very nice, I didn't get the impression she would discipline her receptionist at all as she made excuses about how the receptionist was "probably scared" and "has never done this before". So although I like Dr. Sandler (in spite of her being perpetually late in getting through her patients), I have been forced to switch providers as I don't want someone with such anger issues as her assistant privy to my private information. Perhaps it's a culture thing as the entire staff are Russian-speakers but in the USA, count yourself lucky I'm not suing that she laid hands on me.

Dr. Sandler has been my primary care physician for several years now and I can say that she is an excellent doctor indeed who always listens to me and addresses my concerns. I have a great experience every time I go to her office, she is more than attentive and thorough during my visits and her staff is very friendly and highly professional. I would definitely recommend this doctor. My father also visited Dr. Sandler and he felt very comfortable and cared for.
