Internal medicine is a broad rubric with a narrow focus. Physicians, board certified in Internal Medicine, spend years in training learning to care for individuals suffering from complex diseases. Internal Medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical experience and expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults (post puberty) across the spectrum from health to serious illnesses.
As an internist, I am equipped to deal with whatever problem a patient brings - no matter how common or rare, simple or complex. Solving puzzling diagnostic problems or managing severe chronic illnesses or situations when multiple different issues collide to affect health are the mainstay of an Internal Medicine practice, and one of my personal passions. I love a good medical challenge. Even better, I love solving the problem and restoring my patients to their best physical and emotional health.
