Internal Medicine

Premier Medical Group’s Internal Medicine Division is committed to providing the best health care possible for you, even when you’re not in our office.  To help us do that we’ve adopted a proven framework called Patient-Centered Medical Home.

Premier Medical Group’s Internal Medicine Division offers primary health care services throughout the Hudson Valley with providers who manage and coordinate a patient’s healthcare needs. Providers help patients with prevention and wellness strategies, and will coordinate all appropriate health screening tests. As a primary care provider, our physicians and allied staff will also coordinate any care their patients may need from other Premier Medical Group or other specialists. With our electronic medical record system, our providers have instant access to a patient’s records from any provider in our practice allowing for more cohesive and responsive care.

In addition to the services and procedures we provide our patients, Premier Medical Group is one of the few medical practices to maintain its own pathology lab and radiology department. Premier Medical Group also operates their own CT scanner. This provides our patients with fast and accurate test results.

Our physicians see patients in our Poughkeepsie, Fishkill, and New Windsor offices. We are committed to delivering compassionate and expert care.

Benefits to building a relationship with a primary care physician:

1.) A primary care physician knows how to deal with everything from helping you through a bout with the flu to back pain and digestion issues, to uncovering serious illnesses like cancer and heart disease. They can treat almost anything. If not, they will refer you to a specialist who can.

2.) Your physician will get to know you as person. You will build trust and be able to talk about anything that is bothering you physically and emotionally. That is important as problems in any of these areas can affect your overall health.

3.) Your primary care physician is the point person who helps you navigate the healthcare jungle. He or she:

  • Helps you find the best specialist if you need one.
  • Knows about all of the medicines and supplements you are taking and look for possible interactions.
  • Orders the right tests and other diagnostics you need at each stage of your life.
  • Answers any questions you have regarding your care so you are clear on all of the details

4.) Your primary care physician is not just interested in you when you are sick. He or she wants to collaborate with you on a wellness and prevention plan too. Consider your primary care physician your best source for information on things like weight management, smoking cessation, help with alcohol and drug use, and managing stress and anxiety.

5.) Your primary care physician will arrange for screenings such as mammograms, colonoscopies, blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and more. It is important to note that many serious illnesses are found during routine physicals.

Routine visits to your primary care physician are recommended to keep you healthy and up-to-date on necessary screenings. If you do not have a primary care physician, now is the time.
