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.

My heart valve was replaced with a pig valve. I guess they last 18 years. We never discussed the condition of my heart valve or the amount of blood that passes by when the valve is in the closed position. I thought I was going to get a stress test for my fibulation. INOVA injected me with chemicals to force stress. The force stress lasted about 2 minutes. I know nothing about my fibulation. The analogy between doctors in the civil war amputating limbs and modern doctors who simply do not make the effort to care is all too evident to me. Lynn called me today to schedule a series of stress tests. Thank you for that.
