Internal Medicine and Primary Care Services

For many people seeking healthcare, an internal medicine specialist is often their first stop. Internists are trained to diagnose the broad range of illness and disease in adults, as well as provide a level of primary care that goes beyond treating immediate symptoms.

At UCI Health, our experienced internists work with you to coordinate all your health needs, helping you to maintain a vigorous lifestyle and linking you with specialists when necessary.

And as physicians with Orange County's only university health system, they combine the best of therapeutic and diagnostic technology with extensive training and years of experience to provide the best, most up-to-date primary care for adults age 18 and older.

Our internists are dedicated to caring for the whole patient and they collaborate with other UCI Health medical specialists to ensure that you have access to the right physicians who can address your individual needs.

To ensure the safety of patients and employees alike, we conduct daily COVID-19 screening of all physicians, healthcare providers, staff and patients. We also follow masking, physical distancing and rigorous deep-cleaning procedures at all our clinical locations.
