A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.
- 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've been trying to get an appointment set to see Dr Galler for 3 weeks now. Something is fishy here. A lady named Caty promises to call back but she never does. First time I called 3 weeks ago, I was asked and gave all the information, details, including, SS, everything and I was told I was gonna get a call back within a week. Never happened so, I called back and I was told they have no records of that information been taken. My bad I never taught about asking the name of the lady on the phone the first time since I wasn't expecting it. Second call, I get the name of a lady Caty, and same thing happens. Called back, asked to talk to Ms Caty this time and I was told there have been no availability and that I will get a phone call back within 2 days. Five days passes and nothing. Called back and I am being told that the doctors runs something at the hospital and that's the reason they couldn't set anything. I then asked how long what ever the doctor runs at the hospital takes? I was told about another week or so. That means I have to wait another ... forever, cause if this has not happened until now, it will never happen. All I can think of is that they may have something to do with different insurance companies they work with since I was asked all that up front with the details, ID number etc. and then the decide. I get health insurance thru my employer and as I know I have a decent coverage which I am paying money every month for. I was never denied by anyone, different doctors, specialist, medical institutions providing services. If that's the case in this situation, these people don't deserve to be around us. When someone is seek and needs help, they should get it unconditionally, not to mention that we, most of us pay hard earn money and in return we get things like this happening because sometimes money is not enough for some greedy people.
