Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

I have seen Dr. Ahn for several years, and continue to return to him because he is a great listener, and clearly explains blood test results, medical condition status and recommended treatment. It is easy to schedule an appointment, and if needed, he is happy to write me an order for a blood test and call me with the results, without mandating that I come into the doctor's office and pay for a visit. The staff has always been friendly, efficient, and a genuine pleasure to work with.
Dr. Ahn met me when adult onset asthma and chronic sinus infections were controlling my life. He found all the triggers that were creating the histamine responses and created serum allergy shots that have healed my allergic responses. He recommended Rabbit air filters for our home that have improved the air quality drastically. I hardly ever need my rescue inhaler anymore, only take Zyrtec occasionally, and am down to only one sinus infection a year (where I had 5 or 6 before). Dr. Ahn is a wonderful, very well informed doctor. He is the only allergist I have been to that has taken the time to find he root causes of my allergies and their corresponding solutions. I cannot recommend him enough.
Dr. Ahn seems like he genuinely cares about his patients well-being. He is also very knowledgable; he's always gone above and beyond to address any questions or concerns I have. Dr. Ahn spends plenty of time with his patients, which makes for a personal visit. I also feel like I never have to wait any longer than 10 minutes to be seen by him and his front staff are always friendly and welcoming. Overall, I would highly recommend Dr. Ahn to anyone.
All of my questions were answered and Dr.Ahn is easy to talk to. Found some loop holes in my medical history that many physicians have missed.
