    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.

Attitude

I only saw him once. He was cold, unkind, rude and does not listen. As other reviewers have said, he has a massive ego issue. He would ask me a question, then start to talk over me and would not listen to a word I said! After 15 minutes of this I was in tears. He is SO off-base in what he thinks and says it is astounding Kaiser allows this person to practice. I have never had depression and am not depressed but he insisted I was. I heard he does this to others. He chastised me for a medication I have been taking for over 10 years ("you should try to handle it without drugs" he said), then he pushed antidepressants on me that I do not need!! He is also famous for making patients wait up to an hour in a room for him. He says it is because he wants to spend enough time with each patient, when it actually seems highly passive aggressive and controlling. This should NOT be allowed to go on at Kaiser.

Best MD ever

Takes time listens and explains everything. Patient and understanding and very kind. He was able to give an accurate and a difficult diagnosis. While you might wait a few extra minutes to see him he always takes his time and I have never felt he was rushing through my visit. Best MD I have ever been to.
