Dr. Diane S Pine has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

A few years ago I was admitted to the hospital because of weight loss and Extreme pain. At the time I had no insurance so I was assigned to the hospitalists I can say that all the doctors I dealt with we're very professional but had no clue what was going on with me. This was very difficult for both the doctors and I since I worked at the hospital I was admitted to. I knew a lot of ask Dr. not only has a patient but also professionally. I can tell you in all honesty's not all doctors are not the same. You have that very case when a Dr. truly cares as much for their patient as they would about one of their own family members. I can tell you Doctor Pine is that doctor. I've seen her hold a patients hand that came from a nursing home and who we all knew was going to pass Dr. Pine stay with that person until they passed away. She later told me that no one should pass away alone. That has ALWAYS stayed with me. The compassion Dr. Pine has is remarkable. She is truly a gem and when I got sick and was put on her service she did everything in her power to find out what was going on with me. When we finally figured out what was going on with me she called numerous hospital and doctors to find one that would take an uninsured patient. She saved my life. I was transferred to a hospital and was in surgery two days later. The doctor that performed my surgery told me if we waited any longer I would have died. I was in a coma for over a month after my operation and between the two hospital stays I was in the hospital for almost approximately year. Dr pine even called the hospital numerous times to check on my progress. Dr pine is also an amazing diagnostician, She is the rare few that truly care. Dr. Pine is what other doctors should strive to be! I owe her my life. I know that my experience is from a few years ago but I feel it's important to give praise even if I'm a few years late. ð
Dr. Pine's hospitalist group at ORMC are easily the most incompetent group of physicians I've ever had the misfortune to encounter. Poor knowledge of both medicine and patient, very condescending nature. Overall horrible treatment by a group that you are stuck with when you come to the hospital without an attending. Stay far away from ORMC if you value your health and well-being.
