    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.

Delayed calls in for medicines refills

I have a problem with reorder of medicine new refills. I end up asking the Pharmacy to give me in advance few pills until the Doctor office finally calls. This comment is not affecting the good impression about Doctor's Nelson profesionalism.
