Internal Medicine

Overview

The internists at UofL Physicians handle the broad and comprehensive spectrum of illnesses that affect adults. We are recognized as experts in diagnosis, in treatment of chronic illnesses, and in health promotion and disease prevention. Internists are the “doctor’s doctor,” because we are often called upon to serve as consultants to other physicians to help solve baffling diagnostic problems.

Our internists act as primary care physicians and are equipped to deal with whatever problem an adult patient brings—no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex. We have expertise in wellness care (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women’s health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs.

UofL Physicians – Internal Medicine takes pride in caring for their patients for the duration of life—in the office or clinic, during hospitalization and intensive care, and in nursing homes. When other specialists, such as surgeons or obstetricians, are involved, we coordinate our patients’ care and manage any and all medical problems associated with that care.
