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 won't work for me
Self-verified patient of Dr. Sumitha Atluri - Posted on August 25th, 2015
Wanted to have Dr. A as my PCP even though I am not in JPS Network. She is on my Medicare Insurance Plan. But it took me 45 minutes to get to speak to someone, only to find out that they are not even at her office location. I asked what if I have an urgent situation and need to speak to someone at the office immediately. I was told that all communication goes through them and in an urgent situation, they would contact a nurse to call me back. But, I explained that I have a medical condition which makes it impossible for me to stay on hold for so long. She said that nothing else can be done. I then asked about an appointment and was told that there is nothing available till November, 2-1/2 to 3 months from now. Well, since I need an immediate appointment, Dr. A just won't be a fit for me. Shame.
