- 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.

This review is strictly about my experience when I called to see if doctor was taking new patients. I was first asked was I trying to get pain meds. I told her no. She then took my name d.o.b and placed me on hold. When she returned she stated that he will not see me. When my name was searched it showed I had been prescribed pain meds in the past. I told her yes because I have a pre existing condition that I see a GI doctor for. Currently I am not on any pain meds nor am I trying to get any. I understand that it may sometimes be an issue with some patients but as long as they tell patients up front that they don't take patients that's looking for pain management that should be good enough. That was extremely discriminating and rude. Especially when I just need a local PCP to help monitor my BP and for general health.
Every time I visit Dr. Justins office I am greeted with a smiling friendly face from their front desk lady Kathy. Dr. Justin is thorough and extremely knowledgeable and understanding regarding my health issues. I left my past doctor due to her horrible bedside manner and the terrible attitude from her office staff. I am pleased to say I've found a place where I feel heard and cared for at Dr. Justins office.
As a nurse, it is important for me to have a good relationship with my patients, family, and their health care providers. When choosing Dr. Justine for my PCP I was forced..last minute to use him when I was told, At the time of my appointment, that the Nurse Practitioner I had been seeing, no longer was working there. My appt with Dr. Justine went fine, over all he was polite, listened, and was capable of maintaining the same level of care my previous provider had done. The problem I have had, and the reason I will NEVER return to his office, was his front office staff. My spouse, who is in the military and stationed in another state. I often travel to and from my home state in Ohio to where he is. I have am currently being treated while out of state for a left kidney partial blockage and need to see a specialist. I notified the office the day of my E.R visit (approximately a weekand a half ago) I informed them that I would need INSURANCE approval and a INSURANCE referral in order to see the specialist that the E.R. doctor had refereed. THIS MUST BE DONE BY THE OFFICE & DR OF MY PCP. I am now one day from my appt to see the specialist, have been in horrible pain, and most likely, will need surgery, (As I have had in the past for the same issue) and the incompotant staff has still...even after DAILY calls to Vickie, Lisa, Christina, and some lady who refused to give her name (Ethnicity sounded African american) Have given me so many run arounds... demanding, insisting that it was not their jobs to handle the referrals, or to deal with my Insurance, I have even had my Ins company call them directly to assist them to get this expedited and they put the company on hold for over 15 min. When returning, the insurance rep asked if it was normal procedure to put their clients on hold, and the lady (African american woman who refused to give a name) stated... "I will get to you when I get to you "... In my line of work as a nurse. If I were to put off my patients needs, or their care, it would be considered NEGLECT. I would lose my nursing license and would be fired. Here I am...their patient...and all I needed was a form sent to my insurance...requesting permission to be seen by a specialist...it would take 20 min to call, complete, and fax to all parties involved. Yet days later...I STILL DO NOT HAVE AUTHORIZATION TO SEE SOMEONE!!!! I will miss my appt tomorrow with the Urologist due to their NEGLECT to process my insurance referral in a timely manner. IN my PROFESSIONAL & PERSONAL opinion. Dr. Justine needs to FIRE his entire staff...hire new ones...and make it a point that his patients needs are addressed in a timely fashion.
I went to this PCP because they were the only office that accepted my insurance and could see me ASAP, which is a plus about them. The office overall is older, but not dirty. It could use some updating. The receptionist is not friendly or welcoming. Being a new patient you want to feel welcomed and you do not get this here! I went and got some tests done and when I called a couple days later for the results like I was instructed to they stated that they did not have the results in the computer. But they did not even offer to call the hospital to ask for them, so I went out of my way to get the hospital to fax it to them. I called the office and let them know that the hospital would be faxing over the results and to call me when received. After no call an hour later I called back and the office had closed. I was livid, obvious after 3 calls in one day my results were very important to me! When I called the next day and told the person (who did not give her name or title) what had happened she did not say sorry, only gave me my results and then hung up. Being a nurse personally I can say that the NP and MD are good at what they do and are willing to help but their staff is TERRIBLE. I will not be back unless I am DESPIRATE!!!!
