What is an internist?

Our internists treat common and complex illnesses and offer high quality primary care for adults. 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, such as diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension) and high cholesterol (hyperlipidemia).
  • 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.
