Your Internal Medicine doctor, or primary care physician, is your first stop for so many medical needs. From routine services like preventative care, annual physicals, and immunizations to specialized services like pre-operative consults and treatment of chronic medical conditions, the Division of General Internal Medicine serves as your trusted health advisor. Our expert medical team includes physicians, nurse practitioners, and a clinical social worker. We use evidence-based and patient-focused approaches to deliver unparalleled care to our diverse community.
As an academic medical practice, you will have the benefit of working with both our faculty attending physicians and our resident physicians. Resident physicians have completed their medical degrees and are pursuing advanced training in Internal Medicine. With both faculty and resident physicians available to see patients, you’ll find a greater access to care. Our resident physicians work collaboratively with our supervising faculty physicians, who review each case with the residents.
