“Internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness.” (American College of Physicians)
As a General Internist I provide comprehensive care to adult patients throughout their lives. I believe in caring for the whole person and enjoy having longstanding relationships with my patients and their families. I care for both acute problems as well as severe chronic illness. I make referrals to specialists when necessary and help my patients interpret the specialist’s recommendations in the context of their health issues and personal wishes. I work collaboratively with my patients to help them improve their health and prevent disease. I also help them with the sometimes difficult process of making plans for the end of life.
