- 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.

Charles Syrjamaki has a kind personality. He welcomes you by name and shakes your hand. He gives you a warm trusting smile and proceeds to the questions. You start to see his true colors showing when he begins to pull a few tricks on you. I came to visit him as a result of a back injury. I wasn't aware of what an IME was at the time and assumed he was here to help me or provide me with a proper diagnosis as my current company-hired doctors were unable to find the source of pain. I answered questions honestly and volunteered additional information to help with our cause of setting this problem straight! Several months later I was told to return to this doctor as the law permits the defendant to their own examination. I was well aware of his twisted wording after reading the last report from months prior. I answered all questions honestly and did not volunteer any information. I did however noticed the physical examination was done improperly as he avoided putting pressure on important spots and disregarded my direction to where the pain was. His methods of testing were improper and will not result in any diagnosis such as pressing on one's head to determine a back injury. A few of the tricks he pulled was dropping his pen to see if I would bend over to pick it up, causing a loud noise to see how quickly I turned and pretending to mistakenly skip a step to have me quickly change direction. My tips for anyone dealing with this doctor: 1.) Be kind and courteous 2.) Do not volunteer information 3.) Do not fall for his tricks. Regardless of your inability to do something, he will take advantage of your natural human tendancies to help someone and pick up their dropped pen. 4.) Understand that he is not here to help you. He is hired by insurance companies to belittle your injury in order to minimize a settlement. 5.) Understand that he uses psychology to manipulate you and writes twisted reports that will misquote you and belittle your injury. Answer truthfully, but try to say "Yes", "No" and "Maybe" instead of adding details that give him an opportunity to write a wrongful report. 6.) He is intelligent and will do false tests in hopes that you will say "it hurts". Only tell him it hurts if it does, do not lie! 7.) He will avoid making hurting you so he can "honestly" say you were not in pain during the physical examination. Be adamant and direct him to the pain. If it hurts, tell him. If you're not sure it hurts, ignore it. As a doctor, he is trained to pick up on subtle hints of pain, such as slight body twitches. Do not be dramatic or set yourself up with a false character. Best wishes.
