    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.

The worst

I agree with the other reviewers. She is a horrible doctor. Heartless. Cold. More interested in trying to get family to allow patient to die than to help patient improve. Our experience was some years ago. Sorry that other people were subjected to her care and lost a loved one as we did. Hope she is retired so she can't harm more people. Assigned to us by head of critical care who was also heartless and incompetent. They should call her Dr. Death.

heartless horrible doctor

our parent was under her care while critically ill and died. she was more interested in trying to convince us to let our parent die than anything else. she was assigned to our parent's care due to her supposed expertise in working with critically ill patients. she was cold, heartless and incompetent. she displayed a horrible bedside manner to our parent and was disrespectful to our ill parent and our family. do not entrust your loved one's care to her. you will be sorry. I was saddened to read that other families had the same experience with her as our family did.

She should retire

She was in charge of my Son's care at MCH and he died under her care. He had poor nursing care as well as he lax attention to my Son when he was very ill and needed help.

Mead and her staff on the 5th floor at Highland Hospital don't care about their patients. They leave them in bed soiled with themselves..staff is too lazy to change them..its just easier to medicate them to make them sleep..Mead doesn't order the proper test and is too busy to talk to you..Retire Mead..its time!!
