Our internal medicine physicians provide general and complex health care services for adults ages 18 and older.
Primary Care Services We Offer
If you choose one of our internal medicine doctors as your primary care physician, your doctor will provide preventive care, such as vaccinations and screening tests. Your doctor will inform and educate you on disease prevention and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Your doctor will diagnose and treat acute illness and injury. And your doctor will also will assist you in managing complex medical issues, such as diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or heart disease.
As primary care doctors, our internal medicine team strives to build long-term, personal relationships with adult patients that can last throughout a lifetime.
Specialty Care in Internal Medicine
Internal medicine doctors—also called internists—are trained to handle the wide spectrum of illnesses that affect adults. Similar to family practice physicians, internists are not limited to treating one organ system or disease.
Our internists are trained and experienced in a variety of subspecialties and can provide care in areas such as:
- Infectious disease.
- Otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat).
- Rheumatology (arthritis).
- Sleep medicine.
Your primary care doctor might ask our internists to step in with expertise and advice on a complicated medical issue you might be facing. Our doctors can perform testing, offer a treatment plan and work with your doctor to help you feel better fast.
