- 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.

I became a patient of Dr. Pesquera when my long-time primary care physician left the area. She was recommended to me. My wife, who also lost her previous doctor, also became a patient of Dr. Pesquera. Our initial reaction after our first appointment was generally positive. She seemed to listen to our individual health concerns and answered our questions. However, subsequent experiences have been very disappointing. It is often difficult to get an appointment (she seems to be out of the office very often), and when we do have an appointment, she is unwilling to discuss issues other than the specific reason for the appointment. For example, my wife scheduled an appointment because she had experienced light-headedness and was worried that it might be related to her blood pressure medication. At the appointment, when my wife asked about swelling in her legs, Dr. Pesquera told her that she hadn't come for that reason and therefore would have to schedule a separate appointment. Previously, when we went to her office for a flu shot, we asked whether we could have our blood pressure taken, and we were charged $20 for that service. I do not get a sense that this doctor really does have our best interests at heart. She seems much more interested in maintaining her schedule than addressing our medical concerns.
Dr. Pesquera is a very good and caring doctor but her office staff is the rudest I ever encounter. They do not pick up the phone, letting go straight to voice mail, do not respond to messages left, including messages left by the pharmacy. Overall totally unprofessional. Unfortunately Dr Pesquera ratings will be lowered by association.
Dr. Pasquera, She is an outstanding physician, she really cares. She takes her time, listens and answers questions. She is the best thing that ever happened to Prime Care. I must also add, it is great that she has Dr. Lemansk i as her back up when she is out of the office, he is a great doctor also. Keep up the excellent work..!!!
