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.

What a fantastic doctor. She is really sharp, listens extremely well, is thoughtful and friendly, has terrific bedside manner, and is very knowledgeable (well beyond her 4-5 years of experience). What's really nice is she never seems rushed either. The most important thing is she's willing to dig deep and work hard to find a diagnosis where several other doctors have given up after just a try or two.
My first few experiences with her were excellent, but some appointments weren't as stellar. I don't know if she was in a bad mood sometimes or irritated with me for some reason, but it wasn't communicated. Overall, she seems very knowledgable and smart, but it would serve her well to have some more experience and professionalism.
My experience with Dr. Appelle is always thorough, courtesy and very professional. She is a physician who wants to heal you, and help educate you about your about concerns. Her office staff is always pleasant and prompt to attend to you. Your time with Dr. Appelle will not be wasted. Her total attention is about you, and what concerns you. Believe me she a excellent internist.
