- 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.

I've been doctor for 10 years now and recently I feel more like a number then the person. His staff is horrible. The wait time in the waiting room is 30 minutes and then you have to wait in the room another hour and 15 minutes. I would not recommend anyone to go to his office. Due to to rude staff that do not give him his messages.
Dr. Sanjay Pethkar Doctor Pethkar is a great doctor, and cares about his patients but I don't think the Doctor realizes how awful his staff is.They could care less, They called me to cancel the appointment and than charged me for a miss appointment. The staff is made up of young Hispanic girls who seem to not no what's going on. VERY POOR COMMUNICATION. The office manager is the only adult in the office. if you disagree with her she gets very rude and raises her voice. I need medication and the pharmacy showed me proof that they sent them the refills and that they received it and the denied it. So I was with out my medication and had to make numerous calls. I made a mistake of reoffering someone to the doctor, and again said the same thing; they liked the doctor but didn't trust his staff. Like I said the doctor was good, but not good enough to have to deal with mean spirited, poor attitude workers, that could care less about the health of the people. Dont go to this office save yourself the trouble!
