    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.

Caring, Informative and Professional

I've had numerous doctors over the years and I have to say that Dr Cathey is the best I've had! The times, I've had to go in for an appointment, Dr. Cathey has been very good at diagnosing my aliment or condition and has always provided answers to all of my questions with a calm and professional demeanor. The one thing that I feel helps tremendously is that he knows when to weave in humor to help calm the patient and allow for a pleasant experience.I would not hesitate at all to recommend him to anyone who is looking for a doctor.
