    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.

Caring and thorough

I have been a patient for years. Dr. Sankaran is very caring and wants you as a patient to be healthy and take care of yourself. He doesn't try to over-diagnose in order to get more co-payments. He takes his time during your appointment. He has diagnosed all my ailments correctly the first time. His staff is friendly and professional. I never have to wait to get an appointment when I am ill nor do I have a long wait in the office.
