Many people see an internal medicine (or primary care) physician more frequently, and for a longer period of their life, than any other doctor. So, choosing a provider you can trust is important. At MedStar Georgetown University Hospital’s Division of General Internal Medicine, you’ll find a capable and compassionate team. Our faculty and staff include attending physicians, nurse practitioners, a clinical social worker, and resident physicians who have completed their medical degrees and are pursuing advanced training in internal medicine. All of our providers are dedicated to helping you get healthy and stay healthy.

Our Team of Internal Medicine Experts

Internal medicine is often called “primary care” for good reason. From yearly checkups to management of chronic health conditions, your internal medicine physician is your first stop for most medical inquiries. Should you ever require complex medical care for a serious health condition, your internal medicine physician can serve as a trusted advisor and advocate as you navigate care with a larger medical team.

At MedStar Georgetown, your health is in expert hands. All of the faculty clinicians in the Division of General Internal Medicine are board-certified. This means that, in addition to the requirements that all physicians must meet in order to practice medicine, our team has fulfilled additional training, passed rigorous testing, and proven specific expertise in internal medicine practice.  

When a visit with your Internal Medicine clinicians prompts the need for additional testing or consultation with a specialist, the breadth of services available at MedStar Georgetown makes it easy to access the care you need. Our Internal Medicine team regularly consult with other experts throughout the hospital and can make referrals seamlessly.
