If you’re an adult who wants a trusted primary care doctor or you need more complex therapies, Emory Clinic’s general internal medicine specialists are here for you. These primary care doctors – also called internists – have advanced training in how to prevent, diagnose and treat conditions and diseases that affect adults.

Internists apply the latest scientific and clinical expertise to wide-ranging health issues. They treat common illnesses as well as rare or complex problems, such as the management of multiple chronic conditions.

A partnership for lifelong health

For anyone over 18, an internist can become a valued health care partner. Your doctor will work closely with you throughout the ups and downs of life to keep you in your best health. If you should ever catch an unshakable bug, suffer a serious injury or have an unexpected illness, you’ll be in good hands. You’ll receive comprehensive care – including referral to specialists if needed – from a doctor who knows you well and understands your unique needs.

Our internists are supported by a network of collaborative specialists and shared expertise. Emory Clinic is a physician practice of more than 1,280 specialists, sub-specialists and primary care doctors who care for patients at clinics, hospitals and affiliates throughout the Atlanta area.
