    I wasn't sent to a Dr by SSA, but my regular physician is called an internist.

    An internist treats only adults, and they handle a huge range of conditions. My internist is also my rheumatologist, so she acts as my primary care physician as well as taking care of my lupus, my hypothyroidism, the occasional sinus infection, and even does my pap tests!
