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

Doctor Atwood is the only Doctor I've visited in 38 years that I would without a doubt recommend to a friend. He is not only courteous and knowledgeable but he seems genuinely interested in me on a personal level and has a way of making me comfortable that I have rarely experienced with other physicians. I am usually fully aware through research of my conditions and treatments available when I visit him and his knowledge about various topics always impresses me but even more impressive is his obvious genuine concern about me on a personal level. I never feel like patient number xxxx.
My first visits with Dr. Atwood I tried to tell him I suspected I had been exposed to toxic mold. He automatically downgraded my suspicions. I found mold in my ducked work and had it all replaced. My symptoms would return when I came in contact with small amounts of dust or a freshly painted room. Being in the construction field I despritly needed help to be able to return to work. Dr. Atwood bombarded me with prescription drugs to no avail. After two years of his treatment Dr. Atwood told me "go back to work, no pain no gain" Ends up I needed a toxciologist witch Dr. Atwood never once mentioned. On the subject of no pain no gain I onced worked nineteen and a half hours strait through to get a job done for my clients opening day. I bet I made less that day than Mr. Atwood makes in an hour.
