    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.

Independent third-party evaluations

Not independent, not competent to perform evaluations for substance use disorders (he is an alcoholic in 12-step recovery, he is frequently used by professional licensing boards to diagnose substance use disorders in return for more board referrals -- and for a lucrative fee charged to the patient, and he is incapable of impartial determination of alcoholism/addiction in others because of these facts).
