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.
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

Been seeing Dr Varunok for ~10 years now. He diagnosed a mass in my intestine during a routine colonscopy. I remember the surgeon tell me how lucky I was to have had Dr Varunok as my gastroenterologist, as "even a good doctor could have easily missed this, Dr Varunok doesn't miss anything". He's also personable, and encourages questions. Great Doctor
I'm sure he's very knowledgeable but unless you have Hep C, he's seems to be bored. Always a long wait. I one time sat in the waiting room for 90 minutes, got into the exam room, nurse did vitals and I then waited at least another 45 minutes while I heard the doctor in the hall talking to someone about vacation locations. I had a 1:00 p.m. appointment and didn't get out of there until 4:00 p.m. I was there over 3 hours for a visit with the doctor that lasted about 5 minutes. Not even an apology for keeping me waiting. Nothing. Very disappointing. And his secretary is RUDE. So after dealing with this for a couple of years, I'm moving on.
