- Internal Medicine
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.

My mom is near death due to your lack of compassion and inability to adequately take the time to identify simple infections that lead to sepsis. You are simply put a joke. You lack any professionalism and simply use your rounds at local long term care facilities as a means to pad your pockets.We have consistently tried to contact you during the three times she has been admitted to the hospital over the last month and a half. You would think a man with conscious would at least address the family of the shortcomings and lack of care for my mom. She has been consistently over medicated and ignored by a man who is the shining example of a so called caregiver using the field of health care not to passionately care for the sick and disabled but simply use them as a prop for potential lifestyle afforded through his current position.Its easy to go on rounds st a nursing home and go through the motions when most of your patients can't care for themselves let alone ask a dimple question in reference to dosage of meds etc. You on many occasions have had my mom virtually comatose on many occasions. We have reviewed these issues at length with staff and they have also addressed our concerns. However, you have also ignored their advances to address their concerns.With all that said, my mom lies near death and guess what...you still have not reached out to my family. You sir are a weasel and I will make it a lifetime achievement to make sure you lose your license to practice medicine.Get your popcorn ready the show is about to begin. Are you ready? I know you're not because medical records don't lie. We are coming for your license! Trust!
Very frustrating when phone calls and attempts to communicate about a loved one's plan of care go months and weeks without a response. This doctor's patient returned to the ER and was hospitalized, never once saw or bothered to speak to the patient or family. If you are looking for high quality care, please look somewhere else. Too bad this site doesn't allow zero stars.
