- 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.
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Doc T is a wonderful doctor But his staff doesn't call back or fax my paperwork to offices I need them to I have read other reviews and it has been blamed on his wife . Which I believe But, also I believe Doc T is responsible himself Which is why I am leaving and not seeing him , anymore He may be a excellent Doctor , he is also responsible for how his wife treats people and his staff not doing their job He runs a very unprofessional office
As indicated by the title I've been a patient of Dr.T's for almost 14 years now. He now has me on a number of prescriptions for my failed back surgery pain. Dr. T himself is a very good pain mgt doctor and it took a couple of years of trying different medications until we found the exact mix that works and allows me to at least be able to do small tasks a little at a time. Before I was incapable of even walking my dog around the block. However, as you've seen with other reviews the office staff is horrible. They refuse to call back when you leave a message. And when you call (if you are already a patient) you will have to leave a message because they will not answer the phone. I agree with the other reviewers that this is probably due to the wife situation. She is rude, yells at staff even while the patient is standing right there. The office does have a high turnover and uses unpaid (slaves) interns to do the initial information such as blood pressure and weight. They now use these portable blood pressure monitors that never give an accurate result. Even after you tell the intern that can't possibly be the correct figures you are then informed it does not matter! If it does not matter than why even go through the motions. When you need paperwork done or your claims examiner is requesting a narrative report by his office is like pulling teeth. You are absolutely thwarted from talking to Dr. T over the phone about what your Office of Workers' Compensation is requesting in order to still be considered an injury on the job by the office. You can call & fax till you're blue in the face which makes it very difficult if like me there are time limits to get the requested information back to OWCP. That is why I gave 0 stars for promptness, courteous staff(what a laugh riot) & follows up after visit. It's really too bad that Dr T's wife is involved at all in his business. Good doctor, but if you have to deal with an on the job injury that requires by law certain paperwork be done in a certain time frame you are now playing Russian roulette.
I have been a patient of Dr. Teicheira's for many years. He was on J Street near Sutter General, then he moved his office to Scripps Drive. Dr. Teichera is a soft-spoken, gentle and sensitive man who unfortunately is married to a very difficult wife. I believe she over-books patients as I have waited for 1 hour for him to see me, but the wait is usually 45 minutes, so plan for that. Unusually high turnover of office personnel, everytime I go in for an appointment I plan to wait for at least 45 mins, ( this is the norm) and am seen by inexperienced medical assoc. students. I help them with proper med. procedures often. Doc T. himself is wonderful, I believe the high turnover is directly related to his wife who is an absolute shrew.
Really appreciated Dr. T's advice about managing pain. This is a doc without a sign of arrogance . . . human, caring and very very knowledgable. I got relief from severe back pain and didn't require surgery. Dr. T's counseling enabled me to manage pain and get my life back. Can't say enough good things about the man and his staff.
