    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.

annual exams

He is thorough, but orders too many tests. Many unnecessary. He can be rude, arrogant, demeaning to patients. For example, he assumes patient know nothing about their own health and will dismiss you if make comments about it. He actually said, "oh, what do you know about it?" and "what would you know about statistically significant changes...?" This directed to a patient who took 4 statistics classes in college/grad school! And to a person married to a medical spouse. The list goes on...He will find what's wrong with you and is diligent about preventative care, but his attitude needs an adjustment. Bedside manner needs work.
