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.

Dr. Kristi Prockop is an average to less than average physician, at best. She has bad bedside manners and is arrogant, which is not a shock when it comes to medical doctors but if that's how a doctor is then she better have extreme talent to back that up... she does not that I saw. Lastly, she has an unannounced policy that requires that you reschedule your appointment if you are more than 7 minutes late, yet when it comes to the patient waiting in the lobby I had to wait much longer than that.
I saw her after waiting 3 months to get an appointment as a new patient. I had blood work done at my Obgyn that showed hypothyroidism which threw me into post -menopause at 40 years old. She ignored the hypothyroid issue altogether and told me I was in the post menopause age range of 41-51. I explained to her that I was in my early 40s ânot within the âage rangeâ- when my period stopped and I had my period very regularly until one day it just stopped. I was told by my Obgyn this is likely due to my hypothyroidism. Also, it coincided with a 10 lb weight gain in one week for no apparent reason! I was told by my Obgyn that I had to see a GP to get medication. I told Dr. Prockop all of this. She ignored me and gave me a look like she was annoyed that I was questioning her. Then I asked her about permanent dark circles under my eyes that my daughter also has and she told me to take Claritin. She makes it so obvious that she doesn't care and just wants you in and out. I also told her about a dull pain in my shoulder. She told me to stop moving my shoulder! She told me she had to get additional paperwork from my Obgyn and would call me by the end of the week. Guess what? No call. I will never go back to her. What I need is relief, not stuff that is obvious, that I already know or can read on the internet. The staff is also rude. I stood there for 10 minutes waiting for them to finish up a random conversation before they would even talk to me. Very unprofessional and a waste of time and money.
Before becoming a new patient I spoke with Dr Prockop's nurse who assured me that she saw patients with my health problems and does write RX's for all the meds I was currently taking. However, after I was seen twice by the doctor. I come to find out she will not write and or follow pain management cases. Which is a complete contradiction to what I was told. So the doctor billed my insurance for a condition that she does not treat. FRAUD!!!!!!
I went to Dr. Prockop for a sinus infection. I had a fever, I was dizzy and my ears were clogged. She told me to use a Clariton and a nose spray which I was already doing. She told me to go find another Doctor if I wanted an Antibiotic for a sinus infection. I have never been treated this rudely from a professional...
