    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.

Dr. Cavanaugh is the most understanding, kind, and usefully and well-informed doctor I have had (possibly in my whole life). He has current knowledge; he can encourage but also gently guide, and he clearly cares about his patients' health and well-being. I am grateful.

treats lab results

This dr only treats lab results. If you are "in range" then you are out of luck. I saw him after three out of range blood tests and many hypo and hyperthyroid issues. He was referred to me by my pcp. After my results were in there was no follow up visit, just a phone call from his nurse saying I was fine and to return to my pcp. I had many questions about my tests and how I was feeling but I was only to give my questions to the nurse and she would relay them to him and only she would get back with me. I couldn't believe he wouldn't even see me! I would be completely ecstatic if I was fine, but why do I keep having all these symptoms with normal lab results. And why does his lab have a "normal" tsh range of 0.35-5.50 when the AACE lowered the range to 0.3-3.0 in 2005? All these are questions I have that will go unanswered. I am definitely getting a second opinion, and only wished I went to a positive patient reviewed endocrinologist first!
