Garner Internal Medicine, established in 1995, is a Primary Care practice for adults age 16 and older. We provide comprehensive health services including management of chronic diseases (Hypertension, Diabetes, High Cholesterol), diagnosis and treatment of acute illness, and wellness services (complete physical exams, immunizations, cancer screenings, and lifestyle modifications). We provide experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate care to help you meet your individual healthcare goals.
Our physician providers are Board Certified in Internal Medicine. Doctors of Internal Medicine, or Internists, have completed three years of Residency training (after four years Medical School). Our Residency training is solely dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults. You can learn more about Doctors of Internal Medicine here. Garner Internal Medicine also offers Physician Assistants ("PA's") and Certified Nurse Practitioners (NP's") as part of our healthcare team. Like our physicians, our Mid-Level providers are licensed by the state to see patients and prescribe medications. At GIM, our Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners are Board Certified and must complete Continuing Medical Education courses every year just like our physicians do. You can learn more about PA's here and more about NP's here.
Our office is conveniently located near the intersection of Interstate 40 and Highway 70. We have complete lab services on-site at GIM. Comprehensive Radiology services (MRI, CT, Ultrasound, Mammography) provided by Wake Radiology Associates are just steps away from our front door. We can receive urgent lab test and Xray results within hours.
Our medical campus, The Health Park at Timber Drive, provides a wide array of medical specialists to meet you and your family's healthcare needs. This includes Radiology, General Surgery, OB/GYN, Cardiology, ENT, Gastroenterology, Dermatology, Orthopedics, Pediatrics, and General Dentistry. For a full listing of the practices within our medical campus please go here. Note that Rex Wellness Center of Garner, a health club with first-class amenities and physical therapy services, is also located on our campus.
At Garner Internal Medicine, our mission is for the patient to consider us their medical home. A "medical home" is not just a slogan, but a state-of-the-art model transforming the way primary care is organized and delivered. At GIM we have completed the rigorous requirements to become certified as a Level 3 (Highest Level) Patient Centered Medical Home (or PCMH). At Garner Internal Medicine, we deliver the core functions of Primary Care with you, the patient, at the center of this relationship. You can learn more about how the PCMH movement is transforming Primary Care here. Additionally, we are a member of the Key Physicians Network, a medical home network of independent primary care practices in the Triangle. You can learn more about Key Physicians here.
Finally, we like to emphasize that we are an independent practice owned and operated by our physicians. We are big enough to serve your medical needs, but small enough to be your medical home. We have great respect for all of the large healthcare networks operating in the Triangle (WakeMed, UNC/Rex Healthcare, and Duke Medicine). At Garner Internal Medicine, we are pleased to collaborate with all of the hospitals in the Triangle and their network of specialists. However, our providers are not constrained by any affiliations with hospital or physician groups, so we can independently make the healthcare decisions that are best for you and your family.
