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 seen Dr. Wishingrad a few times since moving to Los Angeles from NY and every visit has actually been a pleasure. He is bright, funny, wonderful to talk to and immensely approachable and sympathetic.I cannot give him a high enough recommendation as one of the great doctors in LA if not the USA.
Dr. Wishengrad has treated me and my elderly Mother a few times over the years and I have always been very impressed with him. He is very present when speaking to you, listens well and has a good bedside manner. His practice is well organized and you can choose to have your proceedures at St.Johns Hospital or at a nearby surgery center. I opted for the surgery center and it was as pleasant as it could be given the circumtances. All the associated costs are very clearly stated upfront after they determine what your insurance covers. As some of you may know, many insurers will not pay for anesthesia for colonoscopies(which is rediculous). My husband went to another Dr. who failed to disclose this bit of information and then 6 months after the proceedure we were hit with a bill for $800.00 from the anestheiologist. THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN TO YOU WITH DR. WISHENGRAD.In addition to being well skilled and organized with his procedures he is open minded with his treatments. My elderly Mother came to him suffering from 6 months of chonic diaherria, resulting in incontinence. Her GP had hospitalized her several times in an effort to treat her with antibiotics, but none of that worked. Dr.Wishengrad suggested Mom try a pharmacetical grade probiotic and, believe it or not, that protocol stabalized her within a week. 5 years later is still going strong at 90, and still takes the probiotics every day. Sometimes physicians get so programmed by thier disipline that they fail to try to the simple option. I feel confident recommending Dr. Wishengrad to anyone needing good GI.
