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 am so surprised to see all of these negative reviews of Dr. Nwachukwu and her staff. I had such a bad experience at my first endocrinologist and when I moved over to this practice I had a great experience. The front office staff was extremely friendly and prompt and the wait time was practically nothing. All the times I have interacted with Dr. Nwachukwu I have found her to be friendly and informative. She explains why she is doing certain procedures and what she is looking is for. When going over test results she explains them in a way that you can understand so if you see something on there that might be scary, she is able to ease your concerns. I feel for the people that have had poor experiences, but I would recommend this doctor to anybody!
She switched my medication from one to another, a medication which I told her I had issues with in the past, essentially cutting my dosing in 1/2 without me realizing it. Ended up so ill and out of work. In just over a month my TSH shot up over 17 and I wasn't to see her for another few months. Went to my primary because I felt like I was close to needing to go to the ER and they found out that she incorrectly dosed me. Wouldn't let me explain my history to her and she kept interrupting me. Spent more time going over how to pronounce her name than how to help me. If you have thyroid issues with hormone conversion problems you need to look outside the box for treatment, which she refused to do, treating based on numbers (which can vary for each individual and even though in range you may not be well) and not how you feel. So glad I never went back to her.
I went to this Dr Nwachukwu a few years ago and she berated me so horrifically that I still bear the emotional scars. She made me cry, told me that my questions were wasting her time and gave no hope, instead told me that my sugar numbers were causing my blood vessels to experience symptoms akin to shards of glass lacerating them! I actually read that same terminology in an article that was not professionally written. Reading these other reviews has helped me to see that I shouldn't have taken her tirade personally. I was afraid to see her again and her PA adjusted my meds, which helped tremendously. I explained that I would not put myself through her abusive manner again however I needed help right away. She was very kind and almost apologetic. My internist and I work together and I feel confident in her care. Living with diabetes is hard enough and sometimes very sad. We don't need to be treated like idiots or second class citizens!
I can't say anything good. Just stay away. Thinks she knows everything and will talk like you are in school or something. She and other Endocrinologists need alot of manners on how to talk to people. I have been to 4 or 5 different one's and run into the same thing. I am leaving her office and don't know where to turn to next. Wonder why I see so many bad write up on these type of Doctors.. I think they better start doing something quick on how they do things.
