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 came in for a physical before surgery and the guy never even got out his stethoscope. He tried to sell me on some special insurance and when I declined he got up and left the room and never came back. His nurse was a nicer guy than the doctor. I received a huge bill for my visit which I have tried to dispute but all of this stuff was in my record that never happened but he says that it did. The only thing in my record that was true was my name.
Dr. Shehan took care of my husband back in the late 90's until 2006, when he passed away from a heart attack. my husband was a diabetic and had worked many years with physicians as an administratior, so he knew what he wanted to look for in a doctor. Dr. Shehan won him over completely and my husband and I trusted him implicitly....my husband knew many doctors and he always said the only dr. he would refer to family and friends would be Dr. Shehan (he had always been wary of referring doctors, because so many people are different and look for different things in a doctor.) He would never hesitate for a second if someone asked him who they should go to. Very outgoing, and a wonderful bedside manner in this day and age when you go to a hospital and have hospitalist taking care of you. He was always on top of things, and my husband went faithfully every month to see him...he had that much confidence in him and did everything Dr. Shehan told him to (which my husband was not known for following rules when it came to doctors) : ) I have referred many friends and family to him.
I think Dr. Shehan exhibits respect and knowledge. He is also concerned about your general well-being. I have full confidence in him. The staff at the front desk always seem either too busy and/or abrupt. The female who draws blood was extremely rushed and jabs the needle in without warning. It was the most painful draw I've ever had. The male has a much better technique; which I feel is really important. They do seem to be thorough at documenting your information and suggesting wellness ideas for you.
If you are looking for the best doctor, Dr. Joe Shehan is it. He's kind, caring, thoughful & he actually listens. I just adore him & how he took care of my husband. His staff is also excellent. I highly recomend this doctor.
