As General Internists, Drs. Paddack and Dennis are equipped to handle the broad and comprehensive spectrum of illnesses that affect adults, and are recognized as experts in diagnosis, in treatment of chronic illness, and in health promotion and disease prevention. There are times when seeing a focused subspecialist in gastroenterology or pulmonary medicine or neurology or other very specialized care may be needed, but for comprehensive annual care and treatment of most conditions, our providers may be more able to meet your needs because they are not limited to one type of medical problem or organ system. General internists are equipped to deal with whatever problem a patient brings—no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex. They are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time.
Many medical practices now are owned or operated independently by midlevel providers with minimal or no direct physician supervision. In contrast, our midlevel providers are Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners who work daily side by side with our Board Certified Medical Doctors who are highly involved in the team decision making process that insures you are benefitting from the experience and education of a well-rounded and supportive medical group. We have recruited team members who exhibit qualities of compassion and good communication and each is involved in community outreach demonstrating these ideals.
