Our mission is in line with the aims of Carilion Clinic: to improve the health of the communities we serve. We achieve this through medical curiosity, excellence of education, compassion for our patients and a commitment to service excellence, and by actively engaging and participating with the community at large.
Welcome to our faculty internal medicine site. I’m proud to call each of our providers and staff a friend and colleague. Without question, this group of internists provide outstanding, thoughtful patient centered care and excellent education to our students and residents. We love what we do and we think it shows.
Carilion Clinic’s Faculty Internal Medicine department, staffed by a team of caring, committed and compassionate physicians, nurses, nurse practioners, pharmacists and other key health care providers, offers patients a wide array of services in an academic environment. We specialize in diagnosis and treatment of diseases that problematize the whole person, hypertension, diabetes, asthma, heart disease, musculoskeletal issues and many others that patients will bring to their primary care health care team. Our experience also includes bariatric or weight loss medicine, the use of portable ultrasound to diagnose disease and other cutting-edge approaches to serving our patient. While we take care of a wide array of illness, we also know when to refer our patients to our thoughtful and helpful specialists, where our patients may benefit from their expertise.
In addition to clinical care, our department serves as an education site for training future internal medicine specialists through our supervision of internal medicine interns and residents. We also serve as mentors and role models for Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine students learning ambulatory medicine, representing the majority of their outpatient learning experiences. Our faculty play a key role in leading the curriculum for our students in the pre-clinical and well as clinical years.
