Count on your Cone Health general internist to provide comprehensive, individualized care for whatever medical concern you’re facing—from a minor injury to a complex chronic health condition. Known as “doctors for adults,” internists focus on helping older teens and adults of all ages feel their best.
Coordinated, Patient-Centered Care
Your doctor of internal medicine gets to know you—your preferences, your beliefs and your cultural values. That way, you can work together to choose care that fits your medical needs and your lifestyle.
Following the medical home model, your Cone Health internist serves as your “home base” for care. You can count on safe, consistent care because your physician will stay in touch with your specialists. With Cone HealthLink, your internist and other specialists have secure, immediate access to your medical record so they’ll always have a current, complete picture of your health.

Care Where & When You Need It
When you experience an illness or injury, you benefit from quick access to your doctor. Many Cone Health internists offer same-day sick care, and some offer Saturday appointments or extended weekday hours.
If you’re admitted to a Cone Health hospital, a hospitalist—an internist or family medicine doctor who works exclusively in hospitals—will partner with your primary care provider to coordinate your care.
