A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

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.

Self-verified patient of Dr. Douglas R Adler - Posted on January 19th, 2019
I've had colonoscopy done for 3rd time in my life and while 2 previous times everything went normal, this time when a procedure was performed by Dr Adler, next day I felt pain/discomfort by annal area and rectum and I confirmed this with nurse from a center where procedure was done when I received a follow up call next day. I thought it would go away but it didn't and I scheduled appointment with Dr. Adler few days later to have him look and see what was wrong. At appointment, he checked me and said that everything was just fine and that I had nothing to worry about and he also became a bit defensive by saying that he didn't anything to me except for inserting a flex tube which was normal. I left but pain, burning and discomfort persisted and I called him again a week and half later and made another appointment to see him. At this appointment the first thing he said was:"I'll try to help you with your unique case". When you see a doctor especially when you had absolutely no issues before colonoscopy he performed and by the way according to results of it no real issues either, you start wondering why are you in so much pain and you definitely would like to hear a little more confidence than this from a your doctor than saying "I'll try to help you" especially that after procedure he performed, it's 1st time in your life you started experiencing pain and burning in the area where he entered his surgical instrument. When he checked me this time, he said that he now recognized where pain comes from - a fissure which he said potentially happened from PREP taken before procedure. That's totally not the case because I was up at 4 am to finish PREP morning of procedure and didn't experience any paint until after procedure. He prescribed me cream to treat fissure but failed to explain how to apply it, when to come back to see him if issue doesn't go away, etc. I'm still in pain and hoping that one day it will go away but as far as Dr Adler while I'll not challenge his experience and expertise because I have no grounds for it, I can say that he is careless, doesn't hear patient, doesn't ask or answer enough questions and certainly doesn't feel like he is really interested to help you.
