Doctors of internal medicine have had special study and training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. Internists are sometimes referred to as the “doctor’s doctor”, and are trained to manage whatever problem a patient brings–no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex. As primary care physicians (PCP’s), internists can handle severe chronic illnesses, situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time, as well as effective treatment of common problems. Internists bring to patients an understanding of wellness, disease prevention and the promotion of health. All of our physicians are board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
