    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.

Excellent doctor in Punta Gorda, FL

Dr. Chezia is a competent and extremely helpful doctor. She takes the time to thoroughly discuss blood work results and answered all my questions. She assured me and put my mind at ease regarding previous diagnoses, which had been false. All the staff were pleasant and accommodating to me. Prescription refills were taken care of immediately.

First Visit

Dr. Chizea was very attentive to my concerns. Unlike many other physcians I have encountered, she was genuinely concerned, patient, and knowledgeable. My first visit was a positive experience.

No good experiences

Have used this walk in clinic twice first for myself in 2014. I think we also saw a PA. First visit I told the PA I thought I was dehydrated from taking a cruise 10 days prior. She agreed after I told her. Not good experience. Gave me steroids and told me to drink more liquids. In Florida for the winter of 2016. Husband got symptoms of a upper respiratory rather quickly. He just kept feeling worse each day and we noted fever. Why I am not sure but I guess desperation we went back to the walk-in clinic because it is the closest to us. PA told us we had influenza. No test. No real good work up. Gave me a anti-viral med and my husband amoxicillin. That was it. Three days later he was not better and was having difficulty breathing. Knew we had to do something else so I took him to the Punta Gorda ER. They took one look, took him right back to the triage, immediately did an x-ray and a test for influenza, He was diagnosed with pneumonia in both lungs. Breathing treatment, much stronger antibiotic was given and they followed up with us by phone in 48 hours. I went back the next day and was diagnosed with Bronchitis. Appropriate meds given to me. Do not waste your time with the Walk-In clinic. I see where some reviews felt they were overcharged. Our experience was that they took our Medicare/Insurance Info and we paid nothing that day. I am now wondering if we will be getting bills in the mail very soon. I agree there is something "just not right" about this office set up.

Appt. needed for Dr. Chizea, but stall available for walk-ins. Convenient Punta Gorda location.

Dr. Chizea's assistant, Mrs. Byrne (P.A.?) will often see you if you don't have an appointment. She has been very helpful to both me, and a Mom with advanced dementia.
