  • 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.

The Best

I can not imagine a more competent, compassionate and caring physician. She combines cutting edge medicine with old fashioned dedication. All my extended family have come to her, and she applies our shared genetic profiles to our care.... she is absolutely the best.

Miss Diagnosed

Miss diagnosed on two occasions even after I insisted with her that I knew what the issue was regarding both illnesses. I soon switched to a different physician and couldn't be happier after leaving her firm as a patient. Poor communication is a common theme with her and her staff.
