Practice Description

Welcome to Eastside Internal Medicine. We are an Internal Medicine Practice providing medical care for adult patients over the age of 18. Our doctors are board certified in Internal Medicine and are faculty members of the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Since we are part of the Center for Primary Care, we work closely with the region's top specialists at Highland Hospital and the University of Rochester Medical Center. At Eastside Internal Medicine, our goals are simple: We want to provide you with the highest quality medical care and make every visit to our practice as positive and satisfying as possible.

Our physicians believe good health involves more than seeing your doctor when you are sick. We will work with you to develop the best health plan for your needs, to help you prevent disease as well as treat current problems and conditions.

We firmly believe that the more information you have, the better decisions you will make for your health. We will work with you to make sure you understand your current health situation and the options available to you.

Appointment Information

We feel that it is important for you to be seen by a doctor who knows you and understands your concerns. That's why we'll do our best to make sure that you can see a doctor when it's convenient for you. If your doctor is not available when you call for an appointment, you may be offered an appointment with a different physician in our office. We offer same day appointments for patients with urgent problems.

Your cooperation in arriving on time for your appointment helps us stay on schedule. We strive to provide each patient with the highest quality care. In the event that our schedule is delayed, please rest assured that you will also get personalized attention during your appointment.

If you must cancel your appointment for any reason, please call at least 24 hours in advance. That will allow us to offer the appointment to another patient.
