- Infectious Disease
An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

- 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.

This doctor is a joke. Instead of sending what he had listed in the computer and what the blood test confirmed to be the correct dose of medicine he sends in an incorrect dose. After calling his nurses about it and sending him a letter about the mistake he sends the correct dosage. Two weeks latter, I receive a certified letter stating he will no longer treat me. 1. The letter proves he is only concerned with trying to cover his tracks and not the patient. 2. He and his staff is extremely rude and pompous. 3. He is quick to prescribe new drugs that haven't even been fully tested. 4. He obviously doesn't take the time to check his computer and blood test records.
