About our practice

Welcome to Jay Markowitz, MD, and Associates. Our internal medicine practice specializes in providing comprehensive medical care for routine and complex illnesses and offers high-quality, specialized adult primary care. We are located in West Columbia and serve Columbia, Lexington and the greater Midlands region of South Carolina with same-day appointments available.

Our practice is recognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), which is a health care setting emphasizing partnerships between patients and their personal physicians, and their families, when appropriate. This means we get to know you and work together with you to manage your health care.

We are co-located with Palmetto Health Ophthalmology Associates, who provide comprehensive eye care.

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.

Our affiliate system

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will be rebranded in late 2019 and will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.
