    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.

Terrible doctor

Do yourself a favor and find another doctor. Dr Epstein is an embarassment to the medical profession. He loves the kickbacks he gets from the pill companies, and its probably the only reason he still practices. His attitude is simply to take pills. He minimizes diseases like depression and anxiety and dismisses them as character defects (you just have to be more positive about things). If you come from a family with addiction, expect no sympathy from him. He'll prescribe a pill and tell you to concentrate on the good things in life. He really should be a pill salesman, not a doctor. And PLEASE don't page him off hours; his attitude is it can wait until office hours. Horrible to say the least.

Basically a pill pusher....

Dr. Epstein is really just a glorified pill pusher. His diagnosis in my case was incorrect, and he is not a believer in the trauma effects of dysfunctional families. His attitude is "take this medicine and forget about the past". Overall, just a script writer. During an ear wax cleaning, I became very dizzy and his response was "it happens" and left the exam room, while my head was still spinning and needed to sit down.
