    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

  • 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.

Cavalier attitude towards people's lives

Too bad there is no zero star rating. I have been a patient with Dr. Eichel for many years, and was always pleased with him and staff - both Robyn and Erin are very nice and seemed very competent. If you are essentially healthy, you will be fine with this doctor. However, if you want something more - like getting a treatment for Hep C that can potentially make you desease free, or anything else of this nature, you will be better off with a professional. My Hep C treatment by Harvoni was spectacularly bungled by this doctor. He told me that I got approval for 12 weeks of Harvoni. I was very happy with that. At the end of four weeks, I asked him if I should be tested for the viral load to see if the treatment is working - because, you know, that is what the blogs say you need to do. The doctor laughed it off, saying that if I am that neurotic of course, we can do that. Nobody wants to look neurotic, right? So, I did not insist. Four weeks later it turned out that I was only approved for four eight weeks, not twelve like he told me. At that point, I did not have my viral load results and had no recourse goi back to insurance and asking for additional treatment. The doctor was MIA while I was trying to reach the office and nobody called me and said, You know, we bungled your treatment. We are sorry. Now, if eight weeks were not sufficient or if you relapse soon, the additional treatment WOULD NOT WORK because you body would be resistant to the drug. How can people be co cavalier with other people's life? An apology, maybe? An explanation? Stay away from is doctor. Highly unprofessional and uniformed.
