 Internal Medicine Specialists

As Board Certified Internists, we are experienced in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of virtually all of the medical conditions that commonly arise from late adolescence through the geriatric years.

 

Our expertise includes the ability to promptly diagnose and treat most acute medical illness, as well as manage chronic medical problems such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia and hypothyroidism.

 

The evaluation and treatment of more complex disease states such as diabetes and congestive heart failure are also well within the scope of our specialty training. We are strong advocates of preventive health care, and are meticulous in following the latest recommendations for disease prevention and health maintenance.

 

Our priorities include detecting and modifying risk factors such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol before they lead to serious illness, promoting the early detection of breast, colon, and prostate cancers, and providing our patients with personalized instruction and guidance in life long "health maintenance." We not only strive to fulfill the highest standards of medical care, but are equally committed to service excellence.

 

In addition to performing routine laboratory and radiological testing and EKG's (electrocardiograms), we also offer more sophisticated diagnostic studies such as bone density studies (DEXA), spirometry, ultrasounds, and stress tests (GXT's) within the privacy and convenience of our office.  After your testing is completed, you may retrieve your results 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by enrolling in our secure portal. Please call our office today to set up your portal access.  Should any test results be of a critical nature, you will be contacted immediately by your physician or physician's assistant.

 

We coordinate our patient care with the Brookwood Medical Center hospitalist physicians.  These doctors will be providing your primary medical care during your stay in the hospital.  They specialize exclusively in treating hospital patients and are available to meet your needs throughout your stay.  These physicians will be our connection to you while you are hospitalized.  Your treatment records will be available to us upon your return to our office.

 

By offering comprehensive medical services along with personal attention and care whenever need arises, we hope to serve as your Primary Care Physicians for many years to come. Thank you for considering Internal Medicine Specialists for all your health care needs!
