Internal Medicine


Kell West Regional Hospital internal medicine physicians specialize in the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. Often referred to as internists, these doctors treat all types of conditions, from common symptoms, such as a minor sniffle, to the most complex or rare, and to those symptoms associated with a chronic disease. Because their education equips them to solve puzzling diagnostic problems, internal medicine physicians can handle severe situations in which several different illnesses strike at the same time. Services provided by internal medicine physicians:


  • Treatment of common illness as well as chronic diseases and minor injuries

  • Medical histories and physicals

  • Diagnoses

  • Ordering and interpreting of diagnostic studies, lab tests, x-rays and rehabilitation services

  • Consultation

  • Prescription of medications and treatments including nonpharmacological therapies

  • Education

  • Counseling


Internal medicine and family practice physicians often coordinate patient care with other physicians including hospitalists. Some of our internal medicine and family practioners only see patients in their offices but work with our hospitalists if a patient stays in the hospital, while others see patients both in the office and in the hospital.
