Internists are knowledgeable about a broad range of adult symptoms and diseases, making them particularly adept at caring for patients with both common and complex problems. Doctors of Internal Medicine can be your primary care physician and care for you for life – in the office, during hospitalization and intensive care, and in nursing homes.
The practice of internal medicine is considered a comprehensive specialty and because of the internist’s ability to view the patient as a whole, they serve a critical role in managing and coordinating health care across all stages of an adult’s life. When other medical specialists, such as surgeons or obstetricians, are involved, your internist coordinates and manages patient care.
Dr Matta and Estrela Chaves NP are particularly focused on ensuring that even when you are referred to other specialties that they remain very involved and informed so that your care is truly coordinated and seamless. They are fortunate in that they enjoy very close relationships with theses colleagues which enables them to do this very effectively
