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.

A very bad experience: Dr.Finch practice is totally dysfunctional. Not only are her office staff the more rude and unpleasant I have ever seen, but it is clear that the patient health comes second. She wouldn't prescribe tests that my previous physician (out of state) was having me do every year. And for two years in a row, no routine blood tests were given to me (I am 50.). When I finally got her to prescribe me a control MRI (after having my previous physician sent her a motivated letter), she wouldn't extend it after I had to cancel the appointment from being sick that day. She was arguing it was too much paperwork for her staff to renew the insurance authorization, with no consideration for my health. If practicing medicine is overwhelming Dr.Finch that much, it's probably because she is well past retiring time. Save yourself time and do some research to find someone that will care about your health.
Dr. Finch is a very nice person but only an average doctor. She is so busy typing into her laptop computer while I'm in the exam room and hardly makes eye contact at all. Her office staff is the rudest most unprofessional group of people that I've ever had the displeasure of being around. Don't waste your time by going to this doctor!
For almost 3 years we have been patients of Dr Finch, and in the past year, we have never been able to get in to see the doctor. The PA even signs all the doctor's orders and prescriptions. For more than a year, I have had a non-healing sore that may turn into a very serious tumor growth and they have never been able to get me in to see the doctor even one time. The office staff is rude and uncaring, often does not return calls, and when we have needed prescriptions for acute problems, they have put us off for days in pain with no consideration whatsoever. They cannot say when the doctor may be back...maybe next month, maybe 2 months, maybe not...Is there even a doctor in the practice anymore at all??? Maybe she died. We would never know.
