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. Franceschina is a good physician but the experience of going to see him requires a 3-5 month wait. Danbury Hospital requires excessive booking and he has little to no time to do anything. I don't know how the man can endure the pace he is required to take. If you can, find a doc who actually can see patients and not just a blur as he flies by.
Dr. "Joe" is the best internal medicine doc I have had in 10 years. I have several fairly complicated health issues and had been seeing someone else in the same practice for years. One appt i needed to be see and couldn't get in to my primary care so i saw Dr. Franceshina. I was beyong impressed. He took over 20 minutes with me and made sure to fully understand my problems, based on what I alone told him. He was professional, empathestic, and the right mix of business-like and casually humorous! ! :) Looked at a few of my issues and providing new insight that has made a huge difference in my quality of living. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. even his staff talks about how nice a man he is...he treats everyone with respect. love him
