    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.

This dr. Will not give you a referral to a specialty doctor. He thinks he is a specialist in all fields. So if you are willing to put your life at risk, he is your doctor.

Chnse to anged initial Vitals reso
Five Stars

The staff here is so friendly. They really know you and take care of you. Dr. Willey and the nurse practitioners spend at least 30 minutes with you at every appointment, and I was even able to get an appointment and test on the same day.

Beware

Willey was my elderly parents main physician. My 85 year old father received the worst medical care in his long life with Willey. The treatment of six weeks of antibiotics, without the usual gut care resulted in my father suffering toxic bloat, acidosis and what little bit of health my father had left was destroyed. Willey prescribed methotrexate for my fathers psoriasis which can cause lung damage to even the healthiest lungs, which dad did not have. The only consistent visits between Willey and my parents (it was almost always a nurse that tended my folks) was when my father was given his terminal diagnosis. I don't think that his condescending bed side manner was lost on my parents. In the end my parents, siblings and myself have the impression that Willey really could care less for his patients quality of life but more on their death. Before employing Willey you may want to do a little research.

Doctor's Response

Death of a loved one is difficult in any circumstance and a not uncommon initial response is anger. Sadly, the statements and inferences in this review are not correct. ======When folks make it into their 80s, they can have persistently uncomfortable chronic illnesses, such as COPD, CHF, or cancer, often with home O2 or loss of mobility, and other irritating or painful diseases such as psoriasis, arthritis, etc. They may choose to forgo treatments as it may only buy some months more life at best, and at worse, make life more miserable in the interim. =====At Innovare Health Advocates, we take the time and risk the candor in helping patients and families honestly understand these difficult dilemmas, but sometimes there is conflict between the patient’s wishes and family’s. ======Clostridium Difficile Enterocolitis is endemic at even the “best” healthcare facilities, especially hospitals. Potential complications are why we sometimes have to discourage elective procedures for the, chronically ill, though sometimes patients and families may be disappointed. ====Methotrexate lung disease is rare at these doses and the relief in cases like this were well worth the risk as there was misery without. Methotrexate does not lead to lung cancer, but a lifetime of smoking certainly does.
