- 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.

Just followed up. He’s been working with me for 10 years. I didn’t want a balloon procedure then or now. He explained nutrition. I finally made changes. I am off my insulin. Lost 40 pounds and feel better than ever. It took me two years to decide I would listen to him. I was stubborn. He can’t do it for you and told me I was looking for quick fix to seek care elsewhere. I am 70 now. Just did my first 5k. He is all about prevention and you better understand that from day one. He’s busy but worth my wait. I thank God for him every day.
My family doctor was concerned and sent me to see Steve. Bad family history. After some tests he found I had moderate heart blockages. He doesn’t believe in quick fixes and told me I had to make the changes. He basically told me that if was gonna smoke, over consume and sit on my butt, that he wasn’t interested in watching me get worse. He’s serious about prevention. I consider him a friend now. He’s on my side. He’s busy. Doesn’t have time to hold my hand. Tells me once and expects me to run with the ball. Just like my old TCU coach. I was pleased to see a 90 year old runner sitting in waiting room. That’s where I want to be someday.
My coworker recommended since my family has heart problems. He spent time with me. Thorough evaluation and his focus is on prevention. Convinced me to make some changes. He’s in demand and I expected it to take longer to get in. I found my visit to be worth the wait. My heart blockage was close, but didn’t need a plumbing job. He’s helped me realize I was borderline diabetic and convinced me to get back on track. Refreshing.
