Internal Medicine Specialists
We are trained to treat you as a whole person looking at how all of your medical symptoms and problems come together. We serve as primary care physicians and advise on screening for medical diseases that you are at risk for, and are thoroughly trained to treat acutely ill patients with many problems. We are also referred difficult medical cases for further evaluation from Family Practice physicians, other specialists, and the emergency room.
Some of our most common services include:
Pneumonia, Asthma, Sinusitis, Congestive Heart Failure, COPD
We are experienced and trained in managing patients with acute medical conditions that require careful attention and treatment and focus on getting the best outcome for our patients and look to see what treatment best fits their care. We also do initiate preliminary evaluations for gynechologic problems and then refer patients to gynechology for any serious problems.
Primary Care Screenings
We serve as primary care doctors for adult men and women above the age of 16 and provide physical examinations focusing on the major medical problems at high risk for each age group. We also collaborate with patients who have family members with serious illnesses that may require patients get special screening testing.
Many people become ill every year from silent diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, breast cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancer. When we diagnose these disorders in an early stage, we can prevent problems and complications, and keep you out of the hospital.
Patients are referred to us from Specialists for Pre-operative evaluations and for the treatment of medical problems diagnosed under their care like diabetes, hypertension. We are also referred patients for further evaluation and testing to diagnose the cause of their symptoms or to give a second opinion on their medical case.
Screening for High Blood Pressure
Hypertension is a silent killer and and may not have any signs unless checked. It can lead to strokes, kidney failure, and heart attacks if left untreated but can easily be corrected with medication and sometimes with effort by diet and exercise changes alone.
Screening for High Cholesterol
Studies in the 1970s showed that even young men between ages 20-22 dying in Vietnam already had cholesterol plaques building up in their arteries. We have also seen that lowering cholesterol with diet or medication can lower risk of heart attacks. Checking cholesterol early helps young peple gauge their risk for heart disease and make changes early if needed.
