Riverside Internal Medicine Brentwood

Exterior view of Brentwood Medical Center

Welcome to Riverside Internal Medicine Brentwood, a practice located within Riverside Health Care Center Brentwood. We offer comprehensive medical services for adults 18 and over. We are a different kind of medical practice because we are also a residency program. We have board-certified faculty physicians overseeing recently graduated physicians, who are training to become board-certified in internal medicine. These faculty physicians have devoted their careers to internal medicine.

From lending an ear to using the latest in advanced medical procedures, our board-certified physicians and medical team provide a compassionate and caring environment. We encourage you to take an active role in decisions related to your health and that of your family. First, we'll listen. Then, together, we'll develop a health care plan that's right for you.

We are a part of Riverside Medical Group, a network of more than 750 doctors practicing in nearly every medical specialty. You can expect timely appointments, easy access to our office via MyChart, fast referrals and coordinated care with Riverside specialists.

We look forward to a lifelong medical partnership with you.
