General Medicine involves the assessment and management of patients with complex or undifferentiated medical problems. Often diagnosis and management occur in collaboration with one or more sub-specialty teams. General medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness.
As the primary care doctors for adults, General Medicine physicians at Matrix Hospital have the privilege of knowing patients for years, getting to know their families, and helping to keep them well. We both refer them to the most appropriate care and serve as their advocate and information resource. In an increasingly complex medical system, this is a role of growing importance.
