Internal Medicine and Diabetology
As your internal medicine provider, we hope to provide long term comprehensive care for both common & complex chronic ailments, in addition to providing a one stop solution for acute illnesses.
We take time in getting to know you more during your first visit, in terms of your lifestyle and healthcare background. We assess the need for preventive care and individualize a treatment plan for your current conditions.
We may also refer you to a specialist when the need arises for a specialized test or a distinct treatment. We are here to co-ordinate your care and will make sure all your health concerns are addressed in a timely manner.
We also plan a timeline for further monitoring that may be needed in case of chronic ailments like diabetes and hypertension, so that continuation of care in terms of assessment, evaluation and management of long term complications and optimization & titration of medications would be possible.
In the event of requiring multidisciplinary care (involving two or more specialists), we provide an integrated comprehensive health plan, coordinating, optimizing & incorporating the inputs from the specialists.
