Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.
- 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 father was in this hospital. Not sure if this Dr is afraid to tell the family bad news of what he knows, or just doesn't care. We have to get all our information from the nurses. Although the nurses are great, they are not Dr's, they can't answer the questions we have. This Dr would rather leave the hospital and go spend time with his family. Or is it inexperience, why do we need to find out other information from the on call Dr. After one review he tells us more information in 10 mins then 1 week with Dr Wegman. I would have rather sent my father to a training hospital. Ask for a different Dr, save yourself the aggravation.
My friend was a patient in Unicoi County Hospital and his wife could NEVER get a visit with his doctor who happened to be Dr. Wegman. He never informed her that her husband had staf infection and his medication had been changed. What is his problem that he is not professional enough to speak to the patient family. I would never recommend him to anyone who is looking for a doctor. All of the information that was given came from either the nurse or social worker. Can Dr. Wegman not speak or does he think being a doctor he has no time to spend with the everyday person.
