- Internal Medicine
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 can hardly ever get an appointment with Dr. Connors and usually get pushed off to a nurse practitioner or other covering doctor who is not familiar with my history. I recently had an extremely bad case of influenza which lasted two weeks. When things turned for the worse and I repeatedly asked for an urgent care appointment, I was turned away while I was driving to see her. The nurse told me I was "toxic" and should go to the ER. This was after they said they had no openings but would squeeze me in. I have an underlying condition that should always necessitate closer looks when I report trouble breathing. Weekend coverage is almost non-existent. I eventually demanded to see her and was not offered any immunizations such as the flu shot or pneumonia shot which I should have yearly. The appointment with her lasted two minutes and felt like I was shoved out the door.
Dr. Connors is the best listener, which is so important for a primary care physician. She never rushes you or hurries to make a decision. She is great about referring to specialists and picks out the most appropriate specialist for you as a patient but also for you as a person. She has helped me with some major difficulties in my life (some physical, some not), and although it is a hike for me to get to her office, I wouldn' t dream of switching doctors.
