- 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.

My mother was a patient and so I took my business there too.i drive from another state to see her. The doctors wherei live are morons and get my husband and I mixed of the time. The pharmacy gave my husbands information to Dr. Eichler and she sent her nurse to tell me she would no longer be my doctor. She accused me of seeing another doctor where I live. I did when we first moved and then didn't like him so went back to driving out of state to see her. She didn't even have the decency to speak to me, she had her nurse dump me! She is,a horrible,human being! Im on medication that will make me sick just going off of it. She has a wonderful staff but is so greedy she doesn't take care of them. Stay away!!!!
Thank God for her front office girl that runs the whole place named Mandy. I'm sure a lot of patients stay just because of her and getting their rx, appointments, etc right/fast. I have a rare chronic illness that the dr has not educated herself on or take into consideration when problems arise. Really am in pain and have enough to deal with then a new primary. So frustrating.
After my beloved doctor retired I went to see Dr. Eichler for a problem with chronic migraine and vertigo. The wait was long. She did a work up and drew blood. She then prescribed 3 medications. The one for vertigo made me more dizzy and exhausted and it took 36 hours to get it out of my system. Others did nothing to touch the headache. I got the labs back and no hormone tests. 47 year old woman with new migraines and vertigo. When I asked to have my hormones checked she said "well what are you going to do when you get the results?" I was dumbfounded. She told me that she doesn't feel hormone therapy is safe. So rather than arm her patient with powerful knowledge about her health, she didn't even check the hormones. I got the results and I had zero T and negligible Estrogen and I took the results to a naturopath and 2 years later I am in great shape.
After making an appt with Dr. Eichler one week in advance I had received a conf. call from her staff. Then I got another call from a different staff member telling me they had to cancel my appt because the Dr. had a meeting. I had tried calling the office back after getting this message the day of since I was leaving work early and losing hours to see if they could get me in at a later time. The phone went to voice mail and I never received a call back. Went into the office and was told that nothing could be done the staff members at the front were sincerely apologetic and tried to schedule another appt. No need to since the wait time for a scheduled appt. is a hour past the appt. time and this Dr. has no respect for her the time her patients time.
