- 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.

Unfortunely, I think Dr. Harris has been quite dismissive about the issues I share with her. I just seen her the 3rd time this yr for what I believe may be a serious problem. She makes me feel that I making up my symptoms and that they are not very important. She always says I'll be back and she doesn't come back to tell me next steps or to see if I have any other questions, nor to ease my concerns. A nurse ends up coming in to let me honor do bloodworm, and I leave still feeling concerned. I have tried finding a better pcp but I have contacted 2 other referred pcp's and they are not taking new patients. I can't help but to worry, about if she will truly focus on what could be going on with me. I use to think that I would recommend her, but I feel that when the convo gets past surface level, and a real problem arises she does not seem to focus on what could be the real issues and seems to get distant. I would not recommend.
Don't feel she ever really 'heard' me and focused on what she decided was most important. Left exam room before I was finished with questions and when I told nurse that heard her say she was going to see another patient first before coming back to finish with me. Needs to learn the phrase 'did you have anything else you wanted to discuss' before walking out. Ended up wasting 20 more minutes of my day waiting around for her to decide to come back. Will be finding another Dr.
