In brief: Depends on location

In many parts of the country, internal medicine physicians are in short supply and it can take longer to get an appointment with an internist than with a general practice doctor or a family physician.
However, internists often see more medically complex patients and if you are in that category, it will be worth the wait unless it is an emergency.
