- 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.

Dr. Risbud has been my Doctor for many years now, and I've been happy with the care I've received from her! Last year, I made a same-day appointment when I began experiencing a severe pain up and down my left side, and the Doctor I saw told me that it was shingles, which I'd had a few years before. However, when I saw Dr. Risbud a few days later, she told me that it was not shingles, and referred me to a specialist, who discovered that I had a bulging disk in my neck. Dr. Risbud would take the time to find out what your problem was, and if she couldn't diagnose the problem, she would refer you to a specialist who would figure out what the problem was. After you saw the specialist, she would follow up with you to make sure whatever treatment you received was working and provide any other medications, etc. you needed to speed up your recovery.
I have been with Kaiser Permanente for some time, however, it has been a while since I have seen a doctor. I decided to change doctors and chose Dr. Risbud as my sister and brother-in-law are patients of hers and they continually tell me how they really are impressed with her and the care she has provided. I went for my office visit and was, myself very impressed. She made me feel very comfortable, asked me what my needs are, scheduled some tests and we just talked for a while, getting to know each other, which I was very thankful. Most doctors do not do that, they want to know what you are there for, treat you and move on to the next patient. I am having an issue with plantar fascitis and she explained 4 steps that can hopefully help alleviate the pain. I also want to add that even though Dr. Risbud has an accent, I did not have any problem understanding her. I am glad I chose Dr. Risbud for my primary care doctor.
