Comprehensive care for adults, children and the elderly
General internal medicine practitioners are trained to provide comprehensive primary care services to adults in an outpatient setting as well as to hospitalized patients suffering from a broad range of ailments. Many of our practitioners are also board certified in pediatrics and some in geriatrics. We manage chronic health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and developmental disorders, treat acute illness like respiratory infections and joint pain and provide preventive health care with the goal of preventing illnesses before they start.
Our aim is to develop long-term healing relationships with our patients and help them navigate their care within a complex medical system. Our healthcare team is composed of board certified physicians of internal medicine, geriatrics and pediatrics, as well as nurse practitioners, pharmacists, social workers, registered nurses, medical assistants and many skilled support staff. Within our rich academic environment, we dedicate ourselves each day to providing the best care to our patients, the best education to our students and are proud to be advocates and mentors for tomorrow’s physicians.

Pediatric Services at OSU
Pediatrics is a medical specialty concerned entirely with providing the best possible evidence-based medical care to infants, children, and adolescents. Pediatricians act also as a family's best first source of information on normal development, on detection and early treatment of medical and behavioral problems in childhood and adolescence, and on preventive care in childhood.
Pediatricians are trained to provide up-to-date and relevant information on vaccines and side effects, on nutrition and growth, on family dynamics and school problems, and on a host of other issues that may be problematic to parents and children. They serve as a family's link to the many medical subspecialties and services offered at Nationwide Children's Hospital and throughout the nation.
