    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.

In our experience, Dr Ambika lacked empathy and treated the patient more like machinery than a person. Although he carried out his patient's requests, he criticized them, and also downplayed or contradicted comments made by other doctors about the situation. He was very confident that the only valid opinion on the issue was his own.
