- 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.

Production-line medicine. You might get 10 minutes with Dr. Zweig. He seems to be in a hurry and is not interested in you as a person. He will give you a quick cursory exam which is superficial and nothing more than a pretense. Then he sits in front of a computer screen and prescribe medications. As with most men over fifty years of age, I have a prostrate problem. In addition to the standard drug for an enlarged prostrate, Flomax, he decided to add a drug that caused me to not be able to ejaculate. This condition is a side effect of the drug and the condition is irreversible, it is a permanent condition. He knew this, I am sure. This drug is prescribed for hair loss, not for prostrate problem, there was no reason for Dr. Zweig to prescribe this drug. Did he get money for prescribing this drug? I have no way to know. Is he incompetent? He prescribed a medication that was not suitable for my condition and did me great harm. So, in my opinion he is not only incompetent, he is cruel. I trusted him, never again. Dr. Zweig did harm to me. Do not trust him.
He is professional and knowledgeable. When giving advice I had difficulty following, he was insistent and firm, but professional and polite about it. He takes the time to explain what my body goes thru and why it is necessary. I took one star off for promptness because I had to wait 20-40 mins several times, even for the first morning appt. If they needed to delay my appt., then they should have told me because I must take time off from my job.
Dr. Zweig is pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable. He is approachable at a human level and does not seem overly impressed with himself. Moreover, his ego is under control and he does not exhibit any of the symptoms so frequently encountered of a doctor who thinks he is better than his patients. He listens and thinks, then talks. He is thorough and I never feel rushed when I am with him. Highly recommended.
