- 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 have been a patient at this clinic for 15 years. My original doctor whom I loved and trusted is no longer there and I was referred to Doctor Arce. I have now been a patient of Dr. Arce's for approximately five years. I have always had a hard time getting my regular daily prescription(s) refilled as needed. When I call for refills or my pharmacy calls for refills there is never a response in a reasonable amount of time. Numerous calls must be made by me as well as the pharmacy I use delaying the prescriptions by days. I was scheduled for an outpatient surgery with my Breast Cancer Surgeon but ended up with bronchitis days before surgery and called Dr. Arce's office for an appointment in order to get started on antibiotics as soon as possible. I could not get in soon enough and ended up at Urgent Care one evening as I could not breathe. After being treated by a General Practitioner at Urgent Care for Bronchitis I rescheduled my surgery. Two days before surgery my lungs were heavy(I also have asthma), I could not breathe and I had thrush in my mouth from the antibiotics. I called Dr. Arce for an appointment once again. I was able to get in the same day. During my appointment I spoke to the doctor's MA about calling in for refills and leaving messages with her (the MA) and getting no response or call back. She stated she was new, had been there for two weeks which was also the timeline that the pharmacy and I had been calling but made no apologies or excuses why there was no response. When I spoke with Dr. Arce I told her the same thing, asked her if it was her or her MA who was accountable for the lack of response for refills of medication and I still received no response. It is now two days later and I still don't have the medication for thrush which is very painful and I am unable to eat because of the pain. The pharmacy states that the Dr. was not clear on the quantity or frequency of the medication to be used and she or her MA did not respond yesterday or today, correcting the dosage so I can get the mediation needed. I called and left a message for the MA at 2:30 this afternoon. It is now 3:40 p.m. on a Friday....Do you think I will have the medication I need before MONDAY?
Been going to her for about 15 years. She is pretty accurate in her diagnosis of illness and takes time to explain things to me. She has ordered tests to verify things and follows up on your progress. I have had options to change doctors, but like her a lot.
I am generally satisfied with Miriam. she is reserved, very business like and serious, not overly personable. sure more satisfied with her than i was with walmer. she will spend time with me, doesn't act like she has no time for me. doesn't feel like she is a fee based doctor, run you in, run you out.
I found Dr. Arce to be diligent in gathering my medical info but very lacking bedside manner and empathy. She did not show any current medical knowledge or awareness of my major concern. When I described my back & nec pain from Fibromyalgia, she quickly said Oh, there's no cure for it -you just have to live with it! I felt this was very insentive & ignorant response to a modern day medical problem. She did give me a script for physical therapy after I asked, but I don't plan to follow-up with her. I will keep searching for a doctor who is more current in modern medicine and sensitve to my needs.
