    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.

Not follow up - very quick to dispense Anti-biotics

Nice enough doctor. No follow up what so ever. Ladies in office vary from nice to exceptionally rude. Ask a question, get attitude from some (Sylvia). I have been told repeatedly that the office or the doctor tried to follow up with me (no phone calls) and could not get me. Kim, the nurse practitioner (and Rachel) are okay and you usually get to see the doctor unless you insist. My Complaints about sore throat were met with look at my throat, no feeling it...nothing just talk. Want a partner in health, so maybe fit is not good for me.

Staff is absolutely amazing. They make going to the doctor a nice experience and they are so helpful and sweet. Lauren at the front desk is amazing and all the nurses are caring and have wonderful bedside manner. Whether it has been over the phone or in person, I have NEVER felt rushed and my questions are always answered thoroughly.

No following up

Have been seeing this doctor for many, many years.I did switch to another and SO happy I did. NEVER follows up on anything. Should have been in hospital as she did not diagnose my common illness, mix medications that can not be taken together - thanks to the pharmacist who caught that mistake.Has lost most of my records and all lab work.Most off all I do not trust this doctor to follow up with anything or trust anything this doctor says ! Beware !
