  • 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.

One Star

Pathetic excuse for a doctor! If I could rate him with no stars I would! Didn't even know his name, because he didn't introduce himself to my 12 year old daughter or me. My daughter felt disgusting after he open her tshirt and put his stethoscope down to check her breathing. Then claims she has some disease because she is not breathing comfortably. Announces said diagnosis without any bedside manner and sends 12 year old and 9 year old sister into tears; and walks out of the room without another word. The staff apologizes for his behavior multiple times; while I get needed form and ask for his name; since he didn't provide it. Staff is in tears over his behavior and clearly embarrassed. Simply reply it's not their fault for his behavior and you did nothing wrong; I need his name so I can report him. All this after an almost three hour wait. Nope definitely would not recommend him and have already started the process to have him removed.
