- 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.

Dr. Abraham stays current on medical issues and findings. He is extremely thorough in examinations. His diagnostic abilities are without compare. I am always given the time I need for Dr. Abraham to explain his findings in an understandable and respectful way. He is an excellent clinician and knowledgeable in many, many fields.
Dr. Abraham may have a bit of a stern look about him, but don't let that fool you! He has a kind heart and, more importantly, a brilliant medical mind. I like that he stays current with new developments in medicine without the inclination to make cutting edge into bleeding edge for his patients. He is very discerning in what practices he adopts. What amazes me about him is the way he takes a careful clinical history, does a thorough exam, and uses his intellect and experience to save patients the cost and pain of unnecessary tests. No shotgun approach to diagnosis for Dr. Abraham. Don't expect superficial glad-handing from him--he's warm and concerned, but not in a showy way, but more importantly: if anyone can make you better, he can.
