    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.

Terrible doctor

My mother was in Hospice of the Chesapeake and was enrolled mostly for palliative care. Once enrolled, they treated her as if she was a hospice patient and landed her in the hospital in renal failure, because they refused to help her with ongoing diarrhea, until I forced the issue 3 weeks after onset. No one seemed concerned. Once she was admitted to hospital we DC'd her from the program and no one (neither nurse or doc) bothered to call to see how she was doing. Horrible doctor and horrible program (hospice of the chesapeake).

Old Fashion Doctor in modern times

Wonderful doctor. When mother was terminal Dr. G. came to the house to check on her and write out some scripts. Took the time to discuss options in care and even gave out her cell # should we have any questions.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Gallatin for more than 15 years. She is an excellent doctor, has a great bedside manner, calls you back when you ask and spends just the right amount of time with her patients. They sometimes run behind, but she is well worth the wait.

She is a great doctor. I think the key to her success is she keeps up with the changes within the medical field. Which means she reads and does her research! She is also a great listener.
