Specialties

  • 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.

He is just a wonderful doctor. He found my mother's cancer and was so helpful getting us to the oncologist and answering our questions.

He's a lousy excuse for a physician.

This so called "doctor" is so unaware of resources in his practice area that he presents a hazard to patients. His (the so called "doctor's") response to a patient who came back after being sent on a wild goose chase and who politely pointed out to him that he'd made a serious mistake, was to to project his (the so called "doctor's") rage onto the patient and accuse the patient of "making a big thing out of nothing," and being, "hostile."If you get this unfortunate excuse for a doctor, just ask for another one. He doesn't want to take care of you anyway. Especially if you are a minority.
