    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.

Two Stars

dr ku is pleasant, courteous, an all-around nice individual. I have been asked to make separate appointments to address each health problem. Although reports from specialists are received Dr. Ku does not come prepared to integrate results into viable care plan. In my experience Dr. Ku prefers prescribing pharmisuticals before lifestyle changes or natural supplements. His medical assistant is pleasant. You might want to ask her to restate your request to you before she speaks with the doctor to ensure correct information is communicated. Care has become fragmented because of communication between all members of my care providers.

Dr. Ku is a bright and personable physician. I am always very pleased with his demeanor when I go in for an office visit. His staff for the most part is great, except for his medical assistant who can be quite cold and impersonable. Everyone else in the office is wonderful!

Amazing and great!

Dr. Ku is a wonderful Doctor. He listens and keeps very good notes. If he can't help he will refer you to a specialist, but in most cases he is just as accurate as a specialist. Only one problem - and it is not really a problem but a comment - he talks too fast and so low it is hard to hear him. That's the only thing I find wrong.

Wonderful New Age Doctor

Everything in his office is electronic, he carry's a laptop to do his notes and has all of the information he needs in his hands when he sees you. He knows modern medicine and he is very caring and all around a wonderful doctor. If you are looking for just another pill doctor, Dr. Ku is NOT the doctor for you. He cares about his patients and spends more than enough time with you during your appointment. If you want a doc that actually does rush in and out of the room, Dr. Philip Ku is the best doctor for you. I am making him my primary from now on!
