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.

Dr. Muriel is a rarity to find in this day and age of - "A Sea of Poor Doctors". At this point in my life, she is the only Dr. I trust and feel comfortable being completely honest with. She is refined yet never condescending, reserved yet entirely warm, and she is always willing to consider a patient's whole lifestyle while evaluating and making her diagnosis. She realizes that a person's mental health situation is relevant to his/her physical health problems - but understands that just because the patient may suffer from those types of problems...it doesn't mean that his/her physical health issues are necessarily psychosomatic. She never makes me feel belittled or like I am wasting her time and she is fair and balanced when considering what treatment is needed. She is thorough and I have every confidence that if she ever had a hunch that something serious was wrong with me, she would go beyond the normal amount of diagnostic testing to get to the bottom of it. This Dr. is very smart - and she exudes consideration, experience, grace, and serenity - all qualities which have a very calming effect on the patient. Griffin Hospital is very fortunate to have Dr. Muriel as a faculty member, as the reason I use Griffin in the first place - is because I have a serious aversion to Yale New Haven Hospital and all of its affiliates (for very real reasons) and Griffin was always levels and levels above in providing real and personable healthcare, to their patients. Griffin has changed a bit in the last couple of years and I've noticed some "Yale - like" tendencies... creeping in. Dr. Muriel practices the Griffin way and has none of the aforementioned tendencies. I hope and pray that she does not leave, for I truly appreciate her.
Dr. Muriel is a compassionate thorough Dr. who never makes you feel rushed' She actually listens to what you have to say and doesn't talk down to you. I plan on keeping Dr. Muriel as my primary care Dr. I have already recommended her to friends. The office staff is also kind friendly and professional.
Dr. Muriel recognized a need for my husband to see a specialist and arranged for that to happen without delay; for that reason, he was able to get the immediate medical attention and interventions necessary to save his life. The staff followed up after his visit to make sure he had been able to access the services recommended. We are both very grateful for her knowledgeable and compassionate care.
