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.

I've been going to Dr. Engel for about 5 years and am very happy with him. He spends the time necessary to be thorough and has a friendly demeanor that makes it easy to talk openly with him. The one downside? It can take as much as a month to schedule an appointment...a task that isn't facilitated at all by his front desk assistant. I don't think she has EVER answered the phone when I called, forcing me to leave voicemail. Sometimes, it is a full day before she calls back. But in spite of that, I give him high marks and have every intention of continuing to see him as my internist.
Dr. Engel has an exceptional ability to use limited time well and express interest in an individual situation. Always surprised at how much he remembers from previous visits, as long as 3-4 months ago. Gives strong advice re life-style (e.g. weight loss) but doesn't badger. Is both supportive and challenging in dealing with your health issues.
Dr. Engel and Adria Fishkin are top-notch. I respect them both highly and couldn't recommend them more. Their referrals are outstanding. Dr. Engel may seem abrupt at first, but he is very sharp, smart and compassionate. He is actually a keen listener. Aria is his nurse practitioner and is the ideal NP. She is truly superb, smart and compassionate.
