- 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.

Dr. Vizel-Schwartz is board certified in internal medicine, hematology, and oncology -- a true triple threat to a huge spectrum of health challenges. Please note: She is always busy. Given how many horrible and "meh" doctors there are in NY, you can see why the good ones have lines out the door. Plan on sitting in her waiting room for a while, no matter what time you have an appointment. This is because she spends quality time with each patient. She is worth the wait, however, because when it's your turn to go into the examination room, she will attend to all of your healthcare needs, and will not be in a rush to get you out the door in five minutes or less. I find her very affable, and her years of experience make her an outstanding diagnostician.
In a world where so many doctors increasingly process patients as cash cows, minimizing time spent with them to see as many as possible in as short a time as possible, ordering unnecessary tests to fatten their income and considering time spent explaining things to their patients as time wasted, Dr. Vizel-Schwartz is the rare exception. She is warm, caring and actually wants to get to know her patients and develop a plan for the best care possible. Dr. Vizel-Schwartz is approachable on every level, even providing an e-mail address for questions or concerns that arise outside the office visit and I have never had my inquiries left unresponded to. Would that all doctors were that accessible and had her bedside and deskside manner. At age 73, I have seen more than my fair share of doctors for various health issues. Some have been awful, some "meh", some satisfactory. Dr. Vizel excels in every way. I highly recommend her and have treasured her as my internist for many years.
