Specialties

  • 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.

A doctor who will interrupt your every two words with "mhmm", who did not seem to listen or want to take the time to listen. When I mentioned a neurological condition I have, he shrugged his shoulders and made a face because he hadn't heard of it before. Rather than stop to ask me about it, he just rushed on to get me out the door to unprofessional check-out staff, who had another doctor stepping over my shoulder to drop papers for another patient on top of mine on her desk. Patient privacy much? I won't be going back, I felt like cattle.

Wonderful cardiologist!

I saw Dr. Ching in the emergency room when admitted with arrhythmia. He did all and more than was necessary to make sure it wasn't just nerves. He got the diagnosis right, gave the right medicine and I was much better in about 6 months - exactly how long he said it would take. For heart problems, I would go back to him.
