As a long-time patient, I am accustomed to and grateful for years of excellent clinical care plus appropriate and respectful treatment by staff at General Internal Medicine…. in at least 22 years, I have never had a bad experience. Other medical practices can learn much from GIMG.
The first hour of the morning (between 0800-0900), you can call in and actually TALK to your doctor […]. I love this. No more playing phone tag with your doc to try to get lab results that they need to talk to you about.
I like that my prescriptions can be sent electronically to my pharmacy, and am pleased with everything.
Please bring a list of all medications you are taking, and how you are taking them. If possible, please also bring pertinent medical records, or have them sent to us from your previous physician.
Feel free to fill out your New Patient Form in advance, to save you time on the day of your appointment.

GIMG participates in most area health plans, but check to be sure your insurance plan is on our list of participating plans. We encourage you to contact your insurer and consult your benefits information to stay informed of what is and is not covered by them, and to avoid surprises. GIMG requests payment for all co-pays and non-covered services at the time of your visit.
