Physician for Life

We take great pride in caring for people for not just one situation, but for life which is key in the case of chronic disease management. Being an internist encompasses being your physician not only for an operation in a hospital or only for a doctor’s visit, but in the office, during hospitalization and intensive care, and assisted living situations. Being completely familiar and present in a patient’s medical history brings significant advantages versus being present in only 1 medical situation.
