    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.

  • Dermatology

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
    Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

After months of taking pills for my Plaque Phoraisis (sp) and haveing blood work done every month and then after 6 months the ofice called to make up a follow up appointment . I went to see him and he asked how my blood work was !! really?....Your asking me?... he works at the hospital and never picked up my results ever !!!. Bye the time I went in to see him ,they fax'd him my results and he said to STOP taking the medication he gave me. Why you ask?....as I did too...well my liver enzymes were through the roof and I was in big trouble. Lucky for me my enzymes went down to normal after about six months of worry, no thanks to him. I never saw him again. If a Doctor can't check results of your blood tests at his work then what am I suppose to do ?.......just terrible. I should have sued him but I was happy my liver returned to normal reading,which I had to pay for too until they did.never again. I found a real Doctor after this wanna be.

Arrogant Man

This is a very arrogant man, who feels he has practiced long enough he does not need his patients input. As a matter of fact he has other trainees listen to your woes so he does not have to. They do not even bother to write it down. When he does come in and you try to explain some of the intricacies of your condition, he simply patronizes you and moves on. When I told him that after a year of my own research of a particular drug I am taking he says the manufacturer does not indicate that is true. So, the tens of thousands of people ion the internet that are having the identical reaction I am are all LIARS! Maybe if instead of just collecting his pay, he were to investigate on his own he would find himself to be a much better Dr. and person. I have been doing my job for over 38 years, but it is a rather complex and I work with those that say they know it all. I could do it for another 38 years and I will never say I know it all, only fools say that!-Sad!!!
