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.
