What is internal medicine and why do I need an Internist?
Internists are physicians that use the best medical science available in caring for adult patients in the context of thoughtful, meaningful doctor-patient relationships.
Do I still have to come in for my annual physical if I’m healthy and feeling good?
An annual physical allows your doctor to provide preventative care, check if you are receiving adequate benefits from any medications you may be taking, and get to know you without the stress of an illness. It also lets you ask any medical questions you may have.
Are you affiliated with a hospital?
I am on the Cedars-Sinai medical staff. Through Cedars-Sinai, I have access to your medical records as well as Cedars-Sinai affiliated specialists.
What happens if I am hospitalized?
My patients are taken care of by a Cedars-Sinai hospitalist team that is on-call 24/7/365 and works exclusively with the hospital. They work closely with me as well, so that we can coordinate your care while addressing all of your needs in the event of your hospitalization.
