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 am and have been wonderfully happy with Dr. Michael Bean as my primary care Doctor since I met him 8 years. He's unique in so many great ways.... Always on time....Always happy, always a great listener... always the healer. He makes sure everything about my health, both inside and out is covered.... Meaning physically and mentally. His ability to diagnose is outstanding. His ability to squeeze me in when I'm very sick is terrific, and unexpected. Best of all is that wait time is simply non-existent when I go to see him with new and severe symptoms. Dr. Bean consistently follows up with calls and letters. His staff is also wonderful. Anne, who recently left the practice because she moved, was his gatekeeper and a priceless addition to Dr. Bean's staff. She was just amazing in ALL ways, and instinctively knew everything about me, my health and my needs. I'll miss her but so far her replacement Kiara (sp?) has been great. Dr. Bean's medical assistant Sara, is a star. Always smiling and so smart, she's just great! Sara is immediate about getting back to me, and she makes sure everything that I'm supposed to do (referrals, other appointments etc.) is done. If anyone were to design the prototype of the perfect family Physician, they'd choose Dr. Michael Bean as the Alpha. He's simply the brightest, most educated and kindest man I've ever known....not just as a Doctor, but as a person. I am incredibly fortunate to have found Dr. Bean. He's literally one in a million, and I'm grateful to and for him.
