    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.

Wait, wait, wait - no information

Over a month to get initial consultation. Over an hour wait past appointment time for consultation even after arriving 30 min for paperwork. Over a month to schedule routine colonoscopy. 4 hour wait at hospital before procedure began. All without any information as what is going on or unprompted 'sorry'.
