    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.

Diabetes got much worse

Diabetes got much worse of the year I saw him. His bedside manner was terrible, sat with his back to me, didn't really ask questions. When I shared that I was concerned that things were getting worse, he ignored my comments, wrote a prescription and left. It felt like he was just biding his time there.

Dr. Peterson is great. He is able to help me to switch from insulin injection to just oral medication. Since then my blood sugar has been well maintained and under control. The only downfall is the wait during my visit. Even though I have make appointment, at times I have to wait for over an hour before he is able to see me. So plan your visit accordingly, if you are in a rush for that day, make sure you allow an extra hour wait.
