The Care We Provide
Internal medicine is the branch of medicine that is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in adults, especially of the internal organs. Our physicians, also called internists, focus their efforts on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases that affect adults. Some of the diseases we treat include diabetes, diseases of the heart, COPD, and gastrointestinal disorders. We also provide geriatric care which focuses on the health of older adults.
While the name "internal medicine" implies that internists only treat internal medical issues, this is not the case - they treat the whole person. As primary care physicians for adults, internists play an essential role in your personal health and well-being. In fact, studies show that a good relationship with a primary care doctor is associated with better health for you and lower health care costs for our communities. It is important to find an internist that you can trust and connect well with.
On the front lines, we serve as a first contact when you have a common health concern or non-emergent situation. Our role is to help prevent, identify, and treat your medical issues and provide comprehensive and continuous care. We also help coordinate specialty referrals, such as to cardiology, orthopedics, urology and dermatology, all the while serving as a point person for your care. Furthermore, we bring in specialists such as diabetes educators, behavioral health specialists, and pain management specialists to meet all of your healthcare needs in one setting.
