- 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.

SOUNDS SO WONDERFUL, BUT HAS ANYBODY TRIED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT OUT OF STATE LATELY? I WAS TOLD TO FORGET ABOUT IT UNESS I HAVE SOME TYPE OF RARE CHRONIC PAIN DISEASE HE IS RESEARCHING. AFTER BEGGING AND PLEADING TO NO AVAIL, I WROTE THREE EMAILS WITHOUT ANY RESPONSE. SO MUCH FOR 20 YEARS OF PAIN. WONDER HOW MANY MORE I WILL HAVE TO ENDURE BEFORE I CAN' TAKE IT ANYMORE. I AM DOING EVERYTHING KNOWN TO MAN TO HELP MYSELF ,INCUDING DECOMPRESSION THERAPY, COLD LASER THERAPY AND PLATELET INUECTIONS, ALL WITH MINIMAL MEDS WHICH I PROBABLY WON'T GET NEXT MONTH. I AM AT A LOSS WHAT TO DO NOW. I HAVE NO PROBLEM TRAVELING AS I AM RAISING A 12 YEAR OLD AND WANT TO SHOW HIM A LITTLE OF THE WORLD BEFORE I AM TOTALLY BEDBOUND. I HAVE BEEN TOLD I HAVE SO MUCH ARTHRITIS AND BONE SPURS, AMONGST OTHER IMMUNE DISEASES, THAT N0 NEURO SURGEON WILL TAKE A RISK FOR SURGERY. SO HERE I AM, WONDERING WHY IF HE'S SUCH A GREAT DOCTOR, I GET TREATED LIKE I'M INVISIBLE. I CAN IMAGINE THERE ARE SO MANY TRYING TO SEE HIM NOW BUT AT LEAST ANOTHER RECOMMENDATION WOULD HELP. MAYBE IF I BEG ONCE AGAIN...THE ONLY SERVICE I GOT FROM THIS DOCTOR WAS TO BE TURNED DOWN SO I WILL MARK THAT.
EXCELLENT down to earth. He is a Dr. who understand QUALITY OF LIFE and strives to individualize treatment so that YOU can work to increase your quality of life. He is using methods that make sense and that are not the usual ineffective treatments that I have received over the past 20 years of treatment.
I've been a pain patient for 14 years now! I can honestly say I don't know what I would have done without a doctor understanding what my life is with chronic pain. It would be unbearable to live with day after day. I spent the first 2 1/2 years in Er's every night or hospitals. I found and doctor who finally realized that I needed diffrent medication than most people. He finally got me out of the ER's and hospitals and that was wonderful no more being poke with needles 15 to 20 times with bruises all over my arms, legs and feet. For 10 whole years I didn't go to a ER or hospital! Then my doctor siddenly died and I couldn't find a doctor that would even look at my case let alone take my case own. I just couldn't understand it! I ended up back in ER's and in terrible pain. Why? When there was help to prevent it.. I ended up in an ambulance and a 13 stay in the hospital. I left that hospital in stable condition but still no doctor to manage my pain. Then finally I found Dr. Tennant who was willing to take my case. He was very compassionate and understanding! I've been seeing him now for 2 1/2 years. He's the best with his patients and helps them fight for their rigjts as patients and with Insurance companies that don't want to pay for their medical costs. He has even started testing his patients with Cytochrome testing. This is special testing that analyze DNA enzymes named cytochrome. The enzymes control how we change (metabolize) medication into metabolites. If we have a genetic deficiency you may need to take your medication by a diffrent route like a patch..or take more because it much too fast and kicks out of the body before it can do much good. This has been something that should help patients with the cost of their meds or why they can't take a particular medication. Dr. Tennant is always looking for new trials or tests that can help his patients. These kind of advances and research will only help his patients.
