- 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 saw Dr Martin for the first time about 3 weeks ago. I had been to an urgent care and by the time I left there I was so scared I had something terrible. When I saw Dr Martin she took the time to ask me about the details of what I had noticed AND she let me tell her without interrupting me constantly like some doctors do. Her assistant got the tests reports from the urgent care right away so Dr Martin could review them (and avoid duplicating tests- thank you Dr. Martin for being so cost conscious because I have to pay a big portion of my medical bills myself). Dr Martin talked to me about what might be causing my symptoms and what needed to be done to figure it out. I did need one other test , just a blood test, and when the results were back in 2 days she called me. She diagnosed me and fortunately it wasn't the thing that the doctor at the urgent care told me I could have. I plan to keep going to Dr Martin and I am very happy to find such a good primary doctor.
This physician does not seem friendly, caring or concerned relative to ailments, etc. Very difficult to talk to, she makes you feel like you are insulting her. I am presently looking for another physician who I feel is more capable, can provide more accurate diagnosis, is more courteous and willing to listen. You are also charged additional if you ask a question not relevant to your visit. BEWARE
arrived a few minutes late for my appointment still waited in the office for only about five minutes. Filled out paper work they sent me before I arrived so all I had to do was turn it in. When I got back to see this Dr. for my wellness check up I asked her if she could talk to me about my chest cold. She stated that because I was a few minutes late and I was scheduled for a wellness check that she would not talk to me about my chest cold. She then proceeded to tell me she did not think we were a good fit. I asked her if she was not going to examine me. She said why don't we just talk about your chest cold. I said actually I have gone through allot of trouble to be here and had waited a long time for my wellness check up so I insisted she give me my exam. Needless to say I never will go back to her for anything. She sent my paperwork with the tests results in the mail with little to no explanation of the results. No bed side manner what so ever.
