Walk-In Patients

General Internal Medicine encourages all of our patients to contact us if they need a same day appointment or have an urgent acute illness. We see all walk in patients as soon as a medical practitioner is available to see them but there may be a wait. Be assured that we will see you as soon as possible. We are available during our regular business hours to see you for an appointment or advise you about your care.

CoVID 19 AlertIGIMG is Committed to the Safety of our Patients

We ask that all our patients with respiratory symptoms who wish to be evaluated, call us first. We are attempting to dedicate certain hours during the day for these specific evaluations and thank you for your cooperation!

Before coming in for an appointment, please inform the office if you have traveled in the last 14 days or if you have been in close contact with someone who has traveled or been diagnosed with the corona virus.

We are open and available for any symptoms that require an in office evaluation. We are open 8am to 5pm  Monday – Friday.  Evening and Saturday hours have been temporarily suspended.

We encourage VIDEO VISITS for appropriate acute or chronic problems. You may schedule a videovisit via our Patient Portal and will be evaluated by an IGIMG Practitioner. Patients with Medicare Part B may now also schedule a video visit for acute and chronic problems.

We are also scheduling TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS, given the large number of phone calls we are receiving.
