Our specialty is Internal Medicine and Nephrology.

Internal Medicine is a specialty which involves management of all adolescent and adult medical problems. We see patients starting at the age of fourteen. Nephrology is a subspecialty of Internal Medicine which involves management of kidney disorders and electrolyte imbalance.

We recognize that good health and well being are achieved through a combined focus on your individual medical needs, nutrition, fitness, emotional health and preventive health.
