Internal Medicine

Effingham Medical Partners provides both primary care and consultative services for pre-operative evaluation, disease management and inpatient care. Our focus is on a comprehensive approach to assist the growing number of adult patients in need of an advanced level of care -- whatever the problem a patient brings -- no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex.

Our board-certified internal medicine physicians are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. We aim to bring patients an understanding of disease prevention and promotion of health treatment of common medical problems.

Our perspective on primary internal medicine seeks a balance between the technical/scientific side of healthcare delivery and the humanistic aspect of caring for patients holistically. We believe this is an exciting time to practice internal medicine -- with all the craft and knowledge that is available today -- and the promise of tomorrow's exciting advances.
