Division of General Internal Medicine

The Division of General Internal Medicine at Saint Louis University is a team of primary care physicians, hospitalists and advanced practice nurses dedicated to providing top-notch, patient-centered medical care to the St. Louis area.

As generalists, we care for the widest variety of diseases and medical problems of any medical specialty. We are trained and experienced in diagnosing the unusual as well as managing complex patients with multiple diseases and conditions. As general internists, patients are our top priority and it shows in the care we provide.

Our faculty is routinely listed in St. Louis Magazine's annual Best Doctors issue, which names the top physicians in the metro area as chosen by other doctors. Physicians on this list also appear in the national ranking, "Best Doctors in America."
