    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.

Great Practice

Dr. Lakata was my mothers doctor, he was very attentive and caring. He took time to call me in another state to let me know how my mother was doing after surgery. When we moved back my mother got sicker and we were often in his office. He took very good care of her. Of course as soon as I got a chance I chose him as my doctor too.
