- 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.

Dr. Steinbaum is an alarmist and assumes if you are over weight that you are in bad shape. She assumes everyone should be extremely thin like her, and does not take genetics into play. As others have commented, she makes you take your blood work after eating and then alarms you with your cholesterol, then she gets you so nervous, that your blood pressure skyrockets and she urges you to get on medication immediately in high doses that you do not need.. After being treated by Dr. Steinbaum for several months and put into panic mode, I had all the tests repeated by other qualified physicians, and nothing was wrong, besides trying to lose more weight. She had me so nervous, that it affected my life. In addition, she stated she was worried about me, but never once every reached out to me to see how I was when I cancelled my appointment.. As a male patient, she made me uncomfortable, and would eat her lunch in front of me on my appointments and kept answering her cell phone. I would think twice about going there again.
I just had a heart test done in her office.......she was not there at the time....she was due in at 11 that day. She did not call me with the results. The next day when I called I was told she was at some meeting with the AMA and could not speak to me. I called again a third time the following day and was told she was not in but my test results were not changed from the last time. I have no idea who authorized that staff member to give me test results. It would have been nice to be able to speak to my doctor personally. She likes to schedule tests but is never around for follow up. Her patients take a back seat to her TV appearances and books and whatever extra curricular activities she is involved in. She used to be much better than this.
I have seen Dr. Steinbaum for several years. I think she is an excellent person, doctor and diagnostician. I tried to continue to see her because she is the absolute best but her staff is the absolute worst and it is because of her most incompetent staff that I have finally given up. I have surrendered and I now need to find another cardiologist who is not encumbered by having stupid people working for them.
I like Dr. Steinbaum very much but I have noticed within the last year it is more difficult to get HER to keep an appointment after it is made. Apparently she is involved on TV, and works with Kellogs or some other such group, and often times her staff will call to reschedule an appointment I have had for weeks for a TV appearance or whatever else she does. I belive she is working on a book too. She is trying to make a name for herself at the expense of her patients...which is a shame because she happens to be a good doctor. May have to start looking for another one who wants to be a FULL time doctor.
