    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.

Confused and disorganized office

that will probably not pass on the messages you leave for this doctor that is only in once a week. If you need to speak to him in an emergency forget it. He also does not return calls from your regular doctor-probably because his staff never bothered to write out the message that he called. This place is like a factory and it's too bad he is affiliated with them here because he does seem to be a smart and caring doctor. I just can't recommend him based on the way this office operates. Go somewhere else.
