    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.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Terrible doctor

Dr. Danowitz was callous, dismissive and condescending. I was stunned. In the very few minutes he allowed me, I mentioned that I have been plagued recently by severe, violent suicide ideation. He chuckled, asked if I'd like to see a behaviorist at some point then said I didn't have to if I didn't want to. He then opened the door, pointed me in the direction of the lab, (where I was going to have blood drawn for all of the tests I had asked him to order,) and he walked away. Astounding, really. If possible, I would not even have given him one star. I never do these ratings, but this was such an awful experience, I feel compelled to warn others away.

Poor Bedside Manner

I've never felt quite as dismissed by a health care provider. I am generally healthy, don't like going to the doctor and don't go very often so when I do it's because it's serious enough to warrant a visit. I felt dismissed and judged. I've never left a negative review of anyone but I'm prompted to do so because I think this man should not be working with patients unless he gets some lessons in how to treat people. We don't live in an age where e a physician can assume that the people he sees are ignorant and condescend to them. Even if you spend 5 minutes with someone if your basic paradigm is one of respect that person will feel it.
