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 had suffered a broken ankle & while on the mend (within the 1st week) I had developed what I thought was a severe chest cold. I had assumed that my grandson had passed along his cold to me, as he has in the past. I couldn't shake it for 2 & 1/2 weeks & I called Dr. Anderson to see if she'd write me a 'script' for an antibiotic to knock it out. She insisted that I come in for an X-Ray which I reluctantly agreed to. She then told me that I was at risk for a blood clot and wanted me to get a CT Scan. I told her "no" and that I was sure it was a cold. I didn't want to pay the $3500 cost and I fought her on this. She won, I got the scan and right after getting the results, they rushed me to the hospital because I had multiple blood clots in my broken leg and in my chest, INCLUDING a Saddle Pulmonary Embolism which was Very serious. If I had "won" my argument with Dr. Anderson, I probably wouldn't be here today. Thank You Dr. Anderson!
