  • 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.

straight out of the 1950's

Dr Bruce Cowan announced that he is "an old fashioned authoritarian doctor", related in a defensive manner,made statements that he perversely thinks wanting to have a really good doctor, affiliated with an excellent hospital or medical school strikes him as incomprehensible and/or unjustifiable...huh?He was disparaging toward me for having had specialists who are considered outstanding in their fields.This is the 21st century. Who goes to an internist expecting him/her to be as qualified in every subspecialty as an actual specialist, and who would agree to a doctor/patient relationship that divests the patient of all reasoning capacities, presuming ignorance and encouraging totalitarian dependence on a suposedly all-knowing omniscient Godlike paternalistic figure? He was Marcus Welby without the interest or compassion. A relic. He thinks a barium enema is a realistic option instead of a colonoscopy.If you want to behave like a 5-year-old child to his "authoritarian" medical persona, this is the doc for you.
