- 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.

Although she does spend time with you, she completely discounted all the symptoms I told her about, and in the end said she could tell by looking at me that nothing was wrong with me! Her parting shot was to ask me what I would do if the testing came back normal--very insensitive and unempathic. Ironically, she did find abnormalities on some blood work so she's not psychic afterall. Also a rigidly mainstream doctor so if you have problems that mainstream doctors don't recognize as real, don't go there.
My husband & I both see Dr. Udayamurthy for all our health care needs. She really takes a lot of time and listens to all our concerns. She explains everything in detail and asks a lot of questions to make sure we understand everything. We never feel rushed or talked down to. Would HIGHLY recommend her to everyone!
