  • 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.

Ide sreer clear of this dr he is not qualified to practice medicine,i went to him and had a tiny brown speck he saw it and said that well keep our eye on it ,keep a long story short after a while and 3 or 4 visits 1 of which was my physical i demanded to see my dermatologist the little brown speck had grown into a half marble size mole. Skin cancer stage 3b if he had removed it would have been an easier treatment and recovery

Why is he still allowed to practice medicine???

I'm not sure how he ever got to be a doctor or why in the world he still has a license. He is absolutely the worst doctor I have ever seen. I moved to Massachusetts and somehow ended up seeing him. His idea of a physical exam is to do as little as possible and bill my insurance company for as much as possible. He looked in one ear, listened to my heart for a few seconds and that was pretty much it. And most of the time he spent complaining about the company he works for and how they restrict his time with patients. He spent half the time allotted for me trying to figure out how to find things on his computer. I suspect some of the problems here are the poor care in general that comes from the Signature Medical Group. And there is also blame on Dr. Lords, who really doesn't know what he's talking about. I also saw him for another problem which he totally got wrong - something I found out when I went another doctor. I have heard many complaints about him since then and have since switched to a much better doctor. This guy really has no business practicing medicine and I hope the state will rid of us this disaster pretending to be a doctor before his malpractice of medicine results in someone dying.
