- 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.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

Whatever Happened to the Idea of "First Do No Harm?"
Self-verified patient of Dr. Vamsi K Allada - Posted on March 10th, 2019
The FDA has several Black Box warnings against the use of Cipro antibiotic due to its known dangers (which include painful peripheral neuropathy, tendon ruptures and artery scarring). The warnings by the FDA to doctors have been very bold and repetitive. However, this doctor apparently took it upon himself to prescribe to me this dangerous antibiotic despite the FDA's remarkably strong and well-publicized warnings over a span of years. Today I suffer seriously from painful peripheral neuropathy, which oftentimes is a life sentence of pain, and I'm entering my sixth month of suffering. This man had no business whatsoever prescribing this medicine for a simple bladder infection. I understand it's human to make mistakes, but how can a doctor make the mistake he made after receiving all of the FDA's warnings about this drug? It is very obviously a "last resort" drug, not a "first-line" one. By the way, the culture ordered by the doctor had revealed Bactrim and at least a few other far less risky drugs would have worked very well. Yet, despite the other options, this doctor made the worst possible choice with very dire, actually devastating, consequences for me. The FDA issues warnings and guidelines for a reason -- including Black Box warnings, which I understand are the strongest possible type of warning. It's a shame some doctors behave like they're about it all. So, protect yourself. I did not choose this man who works inside the hospital, the hospital did and did so to my very great detriment. Patient beware because your life truly is at stake.
