Doctors of internal medicine focus on adult medicine and have had special study and training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases.

We are specially trained at solving diagnostic problems and providing comprehensive care to straightforward and complex patients. We also bring to patients an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women's health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system, joints and reproductive organs. Our work includes direct patient care, student and resident education, community service, medical and education research, and quality improvement initiatives.
