Helping adults focus on their overall health.
About Internal Medicine
Taking care of your health is an important investment for every adult. That’s why Ascension internal medicine doctors (also called internists) are here for you. These primary care doctors specialize in diagnosing and treating common illnesses and long-term conditions for those ages 18 and over. Your internist will get to know you as a whole person to help you manage your everyday health.
Serving as your primary care relationship, your Ascension internist and care team will partner with you to help oversee your comprehensive health and manage any complex conditions.
Consistent, compassionate care to help guide your health
We begin by listening carefully to you, assessing your overall health and providing you with a customized care plan. You can come to us for:
- Common illnesses and injuries.
- Help managing ongoing conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes and heart disease.
- Preventive care and annual physical exams including screenings for issues such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and some cancers.
- Adult immunizations.
- Help with issues like substance abuse and mental health concerns.
With a complete picture of your health, we can work with any of your other Ascension care teams in connecting the dots in your care. For example, we can help pinpoint health issues and potential risk factors, even when symptoms seem unrelated. When advanced care is appropriate, we can refer you to the specialists that are right for you.
Our goal is to help support your total well-being — in body, mind and spirit.
