At Texas Gulf Coast Medical Systems (TGC)

Doctors of internal medicine, or internist, care for disorders in the internal organs of adolescent and adult patients. Similar to a family medicine physician, your internist manages your whole health. Your internist can serve as your primary care provider, committed to a long-term relationship or as a consultant to other medical specialists to coordinate a treatment plan.

Our internists specialize in:

  • The prevention, diagnosis and (nonsurgical) treatment of adult diseases
  • Health management of patients with serious and/or unusual diseases

Doctors of Internal Medicine provide:

  • Histories and physicals
  • Interpretations of diagnostic studies, lab tests, x- rays, and rehab services
  • Treatments for common illnesses, as well as chronic diseases and minor injuries
  • Prescription medication and treatments extending to nonpharmacological therapies
  • Consultation
  • Education
  • Counseling
  • Diagnoses

In additions to treating diseases, our internist is also trained in the essentials of primary care, which incorporates an understanding of:

  • Disease prevention
  • Wellness
  • Substance abuse
  • Mental health

Effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs
