Overview

Mount Sinai meets the needs of pediatric, adolescent, and adult patients through Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, and caters to the needs of the families as well as the individual.

Internist-pediatricians comprise Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. These are physicians trained in a four-year program that combines the strengths of internal medicine and pediatrics. These physicians are able to care for adults and general pediatrics. They provide health surveillance and health prevention medicine for all ages, and are able to care for chronic conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension. In addition, these doctors are adept at handling problems that might be unique to the adolescent or adult with conditions that began in the childhood years. These can run the gamut from persistent asthma, congenital heart disease, Trisomy 21, or being a survivor of pediatric cancer. In addition the practice has developed an expertise in managing the primary care needs of solid organ transplant patients of all ages.

The practice is currently made up of three attending physicians, a fellow, and 16 resident physicians in training.
