    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.

Horrible doctor

I saw dr. Meren for an infection that I thought was ringworm.i informed him and the nurse practitioner that I practice jiu jitsu and am occasionally exposed to it. I was completely ignored and given a steroidal crime which greatly exacerbated the ringworm. I went back and again told them that it was probably ringworm. I was again told that it was not. I was given a stronger steroid cream. It caused the infection to get much worse. I went to a dermatologist who did a biopsy to confirm that it was ringworm. He gave me the appropriate cream as well as a prescription for an antibiotic as the infection had gotten severe. I tried to switch primary care doctors today but was told that it is a policy among the doctors to not allow it because it might make someone uncomfortable. He should feel uncomfortable. He misdiagnosed, ignored, and failed to acknowledge that he made a mistake.

Worst Dr. I have ever been to.

Worst Dr. I have ever been to does not listen to anything I say, and if he does he just brushes me off and shrugs his shoulders. I have to call my endocrinologist to get any type of response out of him. I feel like I am just there to get a payment for the practice. I recommend everyone find another Dr. As for following up if his staff didn't do it he wouldn't even bother. Maria is very helpful but her hands are tied by him
