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.

I went to see Dr. James Hurst today, and I am highly impressed with this doctor!!! Not only is he highly intelligent, he has the best bedside manner and professionalism I have encountered to this date. His nurse was very kind and professional and it was just such a positive experience I have to say hats off to Dr. James Hurst at Summit Medical Center in Halls and if you need a great internist go see him!!
Just moved into the state of Tn from the west coast. Didn't know many people in Tn nor doctor referrals from anyone . Found summit medical group office because of proximity to my residence when searching for doctor. Had to wait a week or two for initial new patient apt. I had been off my meds completely due to office waiting time for accepting new patients and insurance acceptance . I was having flu like symptoms , sweaty, headache , emotional because I felt so terrible. Doctor hurst Jr. diagnosed my illness from side effects of being off my medicines and possibly flu and I should feel better once I restarted my meds . Five days later I was in emergency surgery for five bypass open heart surgery . If I was given an EKG in office because of all my symptoms related to signs of heart attack my heart attack could have been avoided . If your having flu like symptoms , feeling depressed , irritable , without energy , headache , sweaty ask for EKG I answered all new patient questions Family history of heart disease , heart attacks etc. , but didn't get an EKG which may have prevented heart attack and emergency open heart five bypass surgery !
