    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.

Over medicating put me in the emergency room

I ended up in the hospital and was told that I was very fortunate, and the new specialist I was seeing was surprised, that the dosage prescribed to me didn't put me into cardiac arrest. I tried calling Dr. Alvarez prior to being rushed to the ER to let them know I was having terrible side effects, but no one ever returned my call. The nurses seem annoyed when they actually have to work, and the doctor seems to be annoyed if I asked questions about conditions or prescribed medications. My advice is stay away from this man and his staff, because their lack of genuine concern for your well being is beyond ridiculous.
