What is an internist?

Internists treat common and complex illnesses and offer high quality primary care to adults and adolescents. The role of an internist includes:

  • A personal and long-term commitment to you as a patient.
  • Knowledge and skill in diagnosis and treatment of many conditions.
  • A caring bedside manner.
  • Providing continuing care for patients in the office, during hospitalization (in concert with a hospitalist) and other long-term care.
  • Coordinating patient care when other medical specialists, such as surgeons, are involved.

Patient-Centered Medical Home
Our practice is recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH). The Patient-Centered Medical Home is a health care setting that emphasizes partnerships between individual patients and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patients' families.
