Internal Medicine - Specialists in Primary Care for Adults
General internal medicine involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease in adults. General internal medicine physicians, internists, serve as primary care providers and also serve as consultants to other doctors (family physicians, surgeons and internal medicine subspecialists).
Meet Our Internal Medicine Providers
Your Frontline for Preventative Care
Primary care providers (PCPs) serve as the frontline of preventative healthcare. They coordinate care between our primary care physicians and highly trained specialists, allowing for consistent access to comprehensive care.
At LRDC, our internal medicine specialists consider the whole person in preventative and diagnostic healthcare, rather than individual systems or organs. Our integrated model is built upon a team approach that brings together physicians, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, nurses and other clinical staff to deliver coordinated care that includes:
- Preventative healthcare
- Management of existing medical conditions
- Healthcare plans for chronic conditions
- Coordination between PCPs and specialists
- Access to and education about self care between appointments
Our PCPs coordinate our patients' care and manage puzzling medical conditions associated with that care, bringing in specialists as needed. Internists combine the role of a diagnostician and a consultant in disease prevention and health promotion, providing a continuum of care for patients with physicians across various specialties when multi-system diseases occur.
