- 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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Adler for 4 years. Most of my office visits were for yearly physicals. Several months ago I went for my annual physical. Dr. Adler was nice and professional. I had blood work done and was told that I needed to schedule a "follow-up" to get my results. When I went for my "follow-up", I waited for about an hour to see Dr. Adler. He looked through my results, told me all was well, and the appointment was over. Several weeks later I received an explanation of benefits for the followup. My insurance was billed $150 for a followup that I was told I "needed" in order to get my test results. I'm not sure what the insurance companies think about this, but to me this seems shady. Why couldnt' the doctor make a two minute phone call to tell me all was well? During that same visit, Dr. Adler realized that the lab did not perform a certain test. He ordered the new test. It has now been 40 days since that test was done and I still don't have my results. I called three times and was handed a different excuse. I finally decided to go to the office to get a copy of my results. I waited for 50 minutes. Apparently the lab never faxed my results to the doctor, and no one at the office cared enough to call the lab for 40 days. To me this is not patient care! I will never go back to Dr. Adler. The moral of my story: unless you are willing to pay $150 for an office visit just to get your test results, no one there will bother to call you.
Receptionists have trouble speaking English and were very rude. I requested an itemized receipt for insurance purposes, and the receptionist handed me a piece of paper that had one line reading "Patient Payment." When I asked for something with a little more detail so that my insurance company could see what exactly I was paying for, she said "We can't print itemized receipts; we have no way of doing that, and the system won't let us." She never offered to get the doctor to sign the receipt and write a quick description of the care given. She was also very rude throughout the ordeal. She then got back on facebook and continued to waste her time and mine.Dr. Adler is great, though. It's probably worth dealing with the god-awful receptionists just to have him caring for you. He's smart, well-spoken, and seems genuinely interested in you and your health. He listens to what you say rather than looking down at his clipboard the entire time like most doctors I've visited in NYC.
