  • 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.

Carol Bates has been my and my husband's physician for more than ten years. She is fantastic: thorough, follows up on every issue or problem, takes time to answer our many questions, explores with other doctors any issue about which she is not already deeply informed in order to get to the root of our various health concerns. She also knows when pills are NOT the best solution! Sometimes it's a matter of exercising a lot more, or avoiding certain foods, or dumping the 8-pound shoulder bag that was causing me terrible shoulder and neck pain for months. After she pointed out that I should get a smaller, lighter briefcase, I did -- and the pain faded away!
