    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.

The doctor will determine whether an allergy, which attacks our immune system, is present. They'll also determine the cause, whether it be environmental triggers like trees and pollen, food-borne like peanuts and dairy, the venom of insects like bees, or a medication like penicillin.

DID NOT LIKE

The doctor does not touch her patients, take their blood pressure, weight or vitals. All she does is consult, charge insurance for pulmonary tests for which she does not perform etc. Does not follow up on her patients.

I been looking for a doctor for some time, I was hospitalized and needed to follow up with a doctor, I called my insurance they. gave me three doctors. I pick her because her name was Joan. My first impression was warm with a free spirit and most of all the doctor related to my problem in a personal way. I felt relieve to find someone that I liked and I felt she knew her tools and would be the right fit for me.

Dr. Lehach is a very nice lady who is willing to listen to the patient once you enter her office. However, the problem lies in that the patient has to wait until the salesman leave her office and that can be endless. This demonstrates a lack of professionalism and making the patient first. Other than waiting for what seems an eternity, she definitely knows what she is doing. I like her.
