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.

I've been with Dr. Elia through breast cancer and then 8 years later with anal cancer. I don't think I would have survived either if not for her kind reassurance and always letting me know the truth about what was going on and what I could expect. She is a very special lady and doctor. I feel very fortunate that she came into my life!
I suddenly found myself in a serious health condition caused from a reaction to an antibiotic. I was diagnosed with ITP and had virtually no blood platelets to clot blood and could have bled out or had sudden internal bleeding at any time. Dr. Elia tried various treatments but my body either didn't respond, rejected or I had a type of bad reaction to. After a few months of trying treatments it came down to possibly losing my spleen, yet she remained proactive about many possibilities and scenarios. At the same time, she understood that I had so much anxiety that Dr. Elia went back to research and tried one more thing, and that one more thing has had me in remission for 3-4 years. She made sure I knew to call her with any questions along the way, made me feel comfortable, spent time with me, made sure if she were going to be out of the office that everyone knew my case, what to do, when and where to contact her and more. She represents what all doctors should be and I wish she were my doctor for everything. Just because I was in remission didn't mean my ITP was gone and just in case anything happened, she did not want me to be without a doctor and has kept me on as a patient and sees me 1-2 times a year to make sure everything is still on track. She doesn't just care about her job, she cares about the person and their family members. She is an amazing person and doctor, and she is truly an angel. The world needs more doctors like Dr. Elia who care about the end result while caring as well for the patient personally. Her bedside manner is unbelievable and I don't think I have ever had a doctor with her work ethic, bedside manner, caring and compassion in my 50 years.
