An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.

I was referred to Dr. Rani after my Type II diabetes became harder to manage. Within six months, I was under seven on my AIC and felt better. She made some minor changes in medication that have worked very well so far. My thyroid appeared to be somewhat low, and I was started on medication, which has also worked well. I find Dr. Rani to have a very positive and involved attitude about the treatment of my condition. I am sorry some others do not have the same feelings about the doctor, but I give her a five star rating on both treatment and disposition.
I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism a few years ago and Dr Rani said "we will get you on a pill and you will be back to normal" Little did I know about this disease. I was treated for 2 years by Dr Rani who consistently told me "whatever you are experiencing is not because of your thyroid" Thank the lord I read reviews and started doing my own research. Dr Rani does not even take the correct hormone tests to see if your hormone numbers are off. T4 medications only are not viable to some with severe hypothyroidism. Do your own research people and go see a new dr because you will not get any help here. she will keep telling you your numbers are normal and do NOTHING. Everyone feels differently depending on their range of current T3 and T4 hormone. Treat the symptoms-we are all not the same!!!! She does not even do the free t3 test and this is vital
The nurse was looking up a baseball team on the internet while in the room with me. The Dr told me that if my blood labs came back normal then we would try to find out what was going on from a different angle, and that we would find out what was going on. When my labs came back normal, I received an email, not a phone call that that my labs were normal, and that we would not be doing anything that we talked about in clinic and I should follow up with my PCP. She flat out lied to me. When I called to find out what the heck was going on I had to talk to someone named Cathleen, who told me that they ran every test known to endocrinology and nothing is wrong with me. This made me really mad because that was a lie to shut me up. I have been doing hours of research everyday and talking to multiple Drs and taking a few vials of my blood one time is not doing every test known to endocrinology. I was so upset this woman had me in tears and she actually had the nerve to patronize me on the phone. When I kept asking her what about what Dr Rani had said in Clinic about running other tests to see what was going on and she would never acknowledge my question. When I asked what did I go and see s specialist for if all they were going to do was draw the same labs that my PCP had drawn before he sent me to her, and she hung up on me. This is the worst Dr I've ever been to. Not only will I not be recommending her, but I will be warning people to avoid this clinic like the plague. I'm 28 years old and my hair is falling out in clumps, and these people made me feel like I was a hypochondriac. As for her staff they are beyond unprofessional. You're in the wrong field when you have a pt on the phone in tears begging you for help and you hang up on them. I never yelled, never called anybody names, just asked them why she is not doing what she said she was going to do.
I have been suffering from Hypothyroidism for almost 4 yrs. I am constantly fatigued, hair falling out, moody, etc. I repeatedly told Dr Radhamma that my symptoms were becoming overwhelming. She said my numbers were "within normal range". After years of dealing with this I started doing my own research and found a new doctor that treats symptoms as well as your test results. You don't have to be miserable on synthroid or levothyroxine..there are other things out there and doctors who will listen. I have my life back and am back to my old self. Don't settle!!!!
