The team at St. Luke’s Clinic – Internal Medicine covers a wide scope of services. Internal medicine physicians, also known as internists, provide comprehensive care for adults including routine and preventive health checks, diagnosis, and treatment when a medical problem is first suspected, and ongoing management of chronic illness. As internists, we keep the whole patient in mind, rather than merely focusing on a single disease or organ system.
We offer a broad scope of services, including (but not limited to) the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease and hypertension, kidney disease, gastrointestinal problems, allergies, cancer, anemia, and lung problems, such as asthma and emphysema. We also manage infections, neurological problems, such as strokes and seizures, nutritional problems, depression, skin disease, and diabetes and thyroid disease.
If you are having a life-threatening medical emergency, please go to the nearest emergency department or call 911.
If you need other support after hours, please call us first, even when we’re closed! Our clinic has after-hours telephone services available if you have a medical question and aren’t sure if you need an appointment or if you should go to an urgent care or emergency department. Please do not use MyChart messaging for any urgent messages.
