University Internists History

University Internists at 550 Harrison St. opened in the Spring of 1986 with one physician, one RN and one clerical support staff member. By the Fall of 1986, it had quickly grown to three physicians with five exam rooms. Today, we have six physicians, one nurse practitioner, one physician assistant and 14 exam rooms. University Internists is PCMH accredited. 

University Internists is supported by a team leader, nurse manager and medical office staff that consists of two part-time social workers, PCMH Care Managers, Care Coordinators, RNs, LPNs, MOAs and clerical staff.  University Internists is a teaching site for residents and medical students.

Our scope of practice includes patients from 18 years of age through geriatrics. Some of our current patients have been with us since our doors opened in 1986. In addition to providing primary care, our physicians have additional training in osteoporosis, diabetes, coronary artery disease, COPD, hypertension, obesity, women's health and palliative care.  We currently are not accepting new patients.  Established patients, to make an appointment, please contact us at 315 464-6527.
