- Internal Medicine
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.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

I too had Dr. Cekleniak suggested to me by an internist within the same medical group. I was dismayed to leave the physician I had been seeing for years but immediately found Dr. Cekleniak to be relaxed, engaged, and attentive. I appreciate that she is able to conversationally sift the wheat from the chaff and suggest appropriate paths to pursue any and all medical issues. I have never felt rushed and believe this this doctor would be 100% on top of it if anything serious were to arise. And, I am an older man.
Dr. Cekleniak as amongst the best Dr's I have ever had. She is very proactive, stays current and absolutely works to be part of the solution. She is terrific at listening and allowing you to self advocate. As a man, having a female Dr. seemed like it might be inconceivably awkward. I decided to work with Dr. Cekleniak, because I was referred to her, and I decided my awkwardness was sexist. As a human, it's a little awkward, but much less than I thought it would be because of Dr. Cekleniaks professionalism. She is a true pro.
