- 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.

I have beeen a patient of Dr. Pelfreys for 18 years. She has always spent time with me and a pleasure to visit. I fell down the stairs last month and needed stitches and rehab so I was unable to work for about a month. Two weeks into this injury Dr. Pelfrey orders sterioids. Unfortunately I had a very severe reaction with anxiety and had to go to the ER. She was unable to see me. The only person I was able to talk to was her assistant Jonie. She was so rude to me. Told me Dr. Pelfrey would increase my antianxiety med for 4 days, then" I had to get my act together." She was angry to handle my FMLA or short term disability. She would raise her voice to me and make me feel guilty I was feeling so bad. I finally received some help from a family friend that was a doctor- Thank God for that angel. Just when I was starting to feel better and back to work I get a letter on Thanksgiving that she has terminated me as a patient. Stated no explanation was required by law. The sadest part is she also terminated my daughter who just turned 18 and was diagnosed with pernicious anemia and vitamine D deficiency by her a couple of months ago. Her lab test were canceled for next week. I always thought she was a caring doctor. We had a good doctor/patient relationship. I think I deserve an explanation, but it take 6 months just to see her. I believe she was at her prime 10-15 years ago and has been steadily declining. She only works part time at the office and manages an extended nursing facility. She basically has her office aides run her office and then at the end of the day she will call in a prescsription without even examining you. I have been a nurse for 30 years and trust me I can see a doctor's decline a mile away. Be careful. A patient deserves a doctor that will see them more than 2 times a year if need be. She did me a favor and will be finding a new family doctor that still cares and hasn't "bitten off more than she can chew."
Dr Pelfrey only works 3 days a week, so it'sdifficult to make a appt between sched. appt's. Lab reports don't seem to be read promptly, even if something is wrong, patientdoes not get a call and has to wait for next appt to find out what the results were. DrPelfrey is friendly and knowledgeable. Theoffice staff lack the same.
