General Internal Medicine

High-quality, comprehensive care for adults, including preventing, detecting and treating all sorts of illnesses is provided by our internal medicine specialists. In an inpatient setting, our physicians are referred to as hospitalists. In a clinic or outpatient care setting, they’re called internists. Regardless, they can draw upon all the resources of our various subspecialists from cardiology to gastroenterology and hematology/oncology to rheumatology. We can be the first medical providers who detect or diagnose your disease or illness and also can serve as your primary physician.
