  • 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.

Worst practice

When I started going to him, he was a decent doctor. After years of him growing to big for him to handle his patients, I was there for a couple of years and never saw him. As far as the last review that spoke about the office manager, she is an evil, sarcastic, snotty woman. I dont know if she is the office manager or the billing manager but I mainly left the practice because of her. The fact that I had several bad experiences with this nasty woman and that I never actually saw my doctor were my reasons for going elsewhere. I am now thrilled with my new doctor and would never go back to Southgate Medical.

Although Dr. Sy is a relatively good and average to above average doctor, he is at the mercy of his office manager who directs him on how to treat patients. I worry about a doctor who cannot think on his own and lets a glorified secretary tell him how to treat patients. If you can avoid his office manager (almost impossible) Dr. Sy can provide adequate care.
