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.

So appreciate the old school approach Dr. Wasser takes in providing in depth explanations for my symptoms and the medication he prescribes. He really does look at the "whole picture" and not just one area as my MD does. I'm getting good results so far and hope to continue. By the way, the staff today is very professional and polite and the office is very pleasant and homey.
Referred to 2 doctors for thyroid biopsy. Other Dr. Had a 3 month wait. I made appointment and then called Dr. Washer. My biopsy turned out to be benign. He put me on medication to shrink nodule. Couple months later I didn't like how rtf he medication made me feel. I knew I had appointment Trent coming up with other Dr. I faced over a release for them to send a copy of ultrasound and biopsy over. I went to new appointment and they did not receive copies from Dr Wassers office. My general practitioner sent over original blood work. I was taken off medication because it could make me hyperthyroid. Came back and had ultrasound a month later and now compared it to Dr Wassers biopsy. The ultrasound showed 3 nodules but only 2 were noticed. My new Dr. Noticed a 3rd nodule that had cancer markings. Within 3 days, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. New doctor was very upset as was I.
This is the last time I will go to Dr. Wassers office because the receptionist was rude to me. I showed my insurance to her and she said we don't accept this and droped my card on the counter. When I said I was referred by my doctor she said who are you. She said I don't know who you are. Barking like a dog at people is not the way to greet people.
