Primary Care Clinicians
UK General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics provides diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients from adolescence through adult age. We specialize in primary care, wellness and prevention, and the care of patients with chronic medical conditions in five separate outpatient clinics located in four separate facilities. When necessary, our physicians coordinate the treatment of patients across specialties and subspecialties.
The division's physicians are among the most sought-after primary care clinicians in the institution. Administrators and professors from the University, the UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital, and state government are patients in the division's primary care practice. The internal medicine group serves as the primary care provider for a large number of patients enrolled in the University health plans and consistently receives excellent patient satisfaction ratings for its service.
