    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.

possibly worst walk in visit ever If I could give zero stars, I certainly would

Dr. Shields is appalling. She talked AT me for over an hour and then did absolutely nothing to treat the medical condition which brought me to her. I will NEVER go to the MGH walk in again [and I work at MGH]. Frankly, I was horrified that she is allowed to work there. I thought MGH had much higher standards.

Abrasive and rude, often interrupting conversation. OK medical knowledge, but with an attitude and unwilling to listen to the patient.

Rude

I was her patient for several years. She is very knowledgeable about medicine, but her rough and rude manner do not compensate for her medical background. I was very dissatisfied with her when I had a serious medical scare and needed reassurance, not brashness. There are too many excellent doctors who are both medically savvy AND caring.
