Internal Medicine

Primary care/Internal medicine is a term used for the activity of a health care provider who acts as a first point of consultation for all patients. Continuity of care is also a key characteristic of internal medicine.

Internal medicine is an important form of health access for patients. internal medicine involves the widest scope of health care including all ages of patients, patients of all socioeconomic and geographic origins, patients seeking to maintain optimal health, and patients with multiple chronic diseases. Common chronic illnesses include:

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Cholestrol
  • COPD
  • Depression
  • Back pain

Our physicians are Board Certified in Internal Medicine Internists are trained to diagnose severe, chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. They also help patients understand preventive medicines, men’s and women’s health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs. Most adults in the United States see internists as their primary medical practitioners.

As your primary physician we will meet your healthcare needs though the entire life–cycle. We strive to meet all of the health needs of each and every patient.

As part of your care we encourage our patients to partake in a preventive medicine routine with periodic complete physical examinations and appropriate health care screenings. These preventive exams will help patients maintain a healthy lifestyle by obtaining routine blood test and other diagnostic testing that lead to the prevention of many of today’s diseases. Preventive care may include examinations and screening tests tailored to an individual’s age, health, and family history. For example, a person with a family history of certain cancers or other diseases would begin screening at an earlier age and/or more frequently than those with no family history.

When your care needs to have additional coordination with a specialist, we work with the patient and the specialist to manage your health. Patients with endocrine, diabetes or pulmonary problems can see one of our in-house specialists in our office. Care is documented in our electronic health record, which gives both the primary doctor and the specialist a complete view of your medical history. BMA has used an electronic health records since 2000 and was one of the areas first practices to do so. We believe that the use of electronic health records is a benefit to the patient care. No longer are there issues with medications, vaccine or other past medical history. It is all there, available at the click of the mouse! Prescriptions are sent directly to a pharmacy in a clear and concise manner, which reduces errors at the pharmacy. Because we value our patient’s health, we have made sure that we have the latest technology available.
