Internal medicine locations
What is an internal medicine physician?
With a specialty of caring for patients 18 years or older, internal medicine physicians are focused on the needs of the adult patient. From caring for you during an wellness check-up or managing complex chronic diseases, our internal medicine physicians are focused on you.
Many of our practices are recognized as Patient-Centered Medical Homes, which is a health care setting emphasizing partnerships between patients and their personal physicians, and their families, when appropriate.
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.
