Our practice specialty is Internal Medicine, which focuses primarily on adult medicine. Medical training includes special studies focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. Internists are equipped to deal with problems, whether simple or complex. Internists are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses many strike at the same time. They also bring to patients an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs.

For proper appointment scheduling, please be prepared to provide us with the reason for the appointment, nature of your problem, and any other pertinent information so we can schedule the appropriate amount of time for your visit. It is difficult to properly assess this, so at times this does affect our daily schedule, as some patients require additional time when their problem is more severe than anticipated. Our commitment is to serve your medical needs at each office visit.
