Welcome to Water’s Edge Medical Clinic – Internal Medicine. At our clinic, you will find a team of dedicated health professionals providing high-quality primary care services for adult patients throughout their lifespan.
Philosophy of Care
We believe that primary care is essential for providing patient-centered care that addresses the needs of the whole person, not just his or her specific medical condition.
We also believe that the best outcomes for patients are achieved with teamwork. Patients themselves are the essential core of the team, as well as family members, doctors, nurses, therapists, pharmacists and other professionals who can provide comprehensive care.
