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.

Working at the University myself in the medical field, I have plenty of experience with specialists and their wide arrange of personalities but this was the first time I can say that this Doctor needs a class on bedside manner and sensitivity. Not only was she condescending and abrasive but the entire appointment I felt as if I was on trial. I went in for help with regulating my thyroid issues and came out feeling horrible about myself and without hope for the future. I would STRONGLY suggest to reconsider seeing this woman for any endocrine issues. She needs to stay in research away from patients.
Lynn examined meÂ and advised me she had aÂ polyp . Lynn then went on to say IVF cannot be done until the polyp was removed, Lynn advised she could do the procedure but to us it was atÂ a hefty cost , so we had agreed with Lynn that we would undertake the surgery thru the public health system. After surgery was undertaken we were advised that were was no polyp by staff there.So Lynn had misdiagnosed me and I had done undertaken invasive surgery for no reason at all.
Dr. Burmeister was referred to me due to her "expertise" in my cancer. Throughout the course of my treatment, I developed underlying cardiac issues which were being aggravated by the medications she was prescribing me. I repeatedly notified her that my heart felt off and that my heart was facing. Her response ALWAYS was that I must be dealing with anxiety rather than a serious side effect of the medication she put me on. She refused to take me seriously and gave me a referral to a psychologist rather than a cardiologist! I decided to go to a cardiologist on my own, who put me on a heart monitor and captured my heart beat hitting close to 200 BPM multiple times a day while I was resting! My cardiologist immediately recommended that I see another physician due to the reckless attitude of Dr. Burmeister, as she refused to listen to serious symptoms and was ignoring serious heart symptoms that were extremely out of control due to lack of monitoring my cancer medication properly. I needed to be on heart medication to counteract the cancer medication and not see a therapist like she was insisting. She is not a good cancer doctor because she ignores serious warning signs of complications that can turn deadly if left untreated. I cannot even imagine where I would be now if I took her word that my heart racing was "all in my head" and saw a therapist instead of a cardiologist. She simply is dangerous and I would not wish my worst enemy to be under her cancer care, as they simply would not be monitored correctly and would be lead to falsely believe that they are receiving excellent care. There are other endocrinologists in the system that will actually monitor you and will keep you alive by taking your symptoms seriously! Dr. Burmeister is not one of those "experts."
Worst physician I've ever seen. Not only is she rude, but she is not helpful! If you have Hashimoto's, she does not believe in any T3 meds. Bedside manner is the absolute worst. No suggestions for improving my health and I was almost suicidal. A family physician at Mayo helped manage my symptoms and was much more knowledgeable than she was. Avoid this doctor at all costs..
