  • 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.

One Star

Dr. Linda Makdesi was not helpful in determining what was wrong with my body. I honestly felt like she thought I was lying about the pain that I have. I kept going back hoping that she would help. I never did receive the help I needed. She was un-personable and overall it was not a good experience for me. I'd say go somewhere else that actually cares about you and you don’t feel like you are just a number.

Awful!

I strongly disliked my experience with Dr. Makdesi and will not be seeing her again. She took 2 seconds to ask why I was there, didn't tell me what she thought was wrong then handed me a prescription and sent me on my way. She was supposed to get back to me within the hour on two different issues, but I didn't hear from her until the afternoon the following day. She never wrote me a scrip for the meds she was supposed to and was extremely rude when I asked any questions.
