- Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
- 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.

I've been under Dr. Oram's care for several months now and have appreciated her direct manner in which she addresses the problem at hand. She is very down to earth - even greeting her patients herself in the waiting room rather than sending a nurse to collect you and make you wait in the exam room as most doctors do. I also greatly appreciate her punctuality. Where as most doctors seem to believe your time is much less valuable than their own, Dr Oram always shows you the respect of being on time. She always takes a few minutes to meet you in her office first before an exam so you have an opportunity to ask any questions. While she is not an especially warm person, she has always had a complete answer to any of the many questions I have asked and I have never had any reason to believe she is anything but highly competent. Further her post appointment follow up calls have always been exactly when she indicated (or earlier) saving me the worrying or aggravation of having to follow up with the office myself. The only criticism I have about her bedside manner. After the exam, she walks out of the room without being clear that the exam is over. While this does not have any impact on my medical treatment, it does leave me a bit disorientated. It would be very easy for her to wrap up by saying goodbye. All that said, I have come to expect this abrupt end and adjusted my own expectations and happily return for her treatment. She is quite busy so expect at least a 1 month wait for her appointments - more if you are specific about when you are available.
This woman is an idiot. She consistently suggests higher doses of medications than needed, does not listen to the patient, insists on doing what she thinks is best which turns out to be wrong. She does not have bedside manners, and she does not have respect for the patients. I would be on multiple high doses of unnecessary medications if I had not gotten a second opinion. I recommend you stay away from her if you are a smart patient.
While Dr. Oram is knowledgeable, her follow through is the worst I have come across in 20 years of going to Endocrinologists. Her initial followup on test results was passable but when she found a problem & wanted something to be retested, there was no followup on treatment, testing etc. After calling her office 2X ( two weeks ago) to follow up I still have not heard back from her. If you want to chance your health to a Dr. that finds something wrong and does nothing about it,Valerie Oram is the Dr. for you. I am very disappointed in the care. The practice is a mill.
