At Albany Internal Medicine we put compassion and expertise in your medical care.
Our office, fronting Meredyth Drive, offers sophisticated technology and quality services in a modern facility specifically designed for the convenience, comfort and security of our patients.
That means easy access, ample parking and close proximity to local hospitals, pharmacies, and other health-related services – without traffic congestion or overcrowding.
It means you don’t have to go somewhere else for X-rays, electrocardiograms, treadmill stress testing, echocardiography, abdominal ultrasound, 24-hour holter monitoring or event monitoring. To further optimize the quality and efficiency of our services, AIM also performs in-house vascular studies (venous and arterial), lung function studies (spirometry), bone density x-ray (DEXA) and nerve conduction studies.
Need lab work? AIM features a sophisticated nationally accredited diagnostic laboratory. At AIM a Coumadin clinic serves those who need regular monitoring of their blood thinners. Struggling with weight gain or other conditions that can affect your health? A registered dietician and certified Diabetic Educator is on staff to educate patients individually and comprehensively.
One of our most important roles is disease prevention and the promotion of good health through beneficial lifestyle choices. Some of the common medical problems we diagnose and treat include heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, headaches, strokes, ulcer disease, infectious disease and geriatrics. In fact, one of our internists is board-certified in geriatrics.
Over the years, Albany Internal Medicine has become known as one of the area’s premier providers of high-quality medical care as demonstrated by its prestigious recognition as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
We are located in northwest Albany, making our practice closer and more convenient to our patient base. It’s why our staff expands its knowledge through continuing education courses, seminars, and workshops. Our commitment to improvement is behind our drive to secure the latest technology and to keep up with healthcare trends.
In fact, we have implemented an office-wide electronic medical records system (paperless) to better care for our patients. Our new “patient portal” allows our patients to link to us via the world wide web to request an appointment, ask a nurse a question, receive secure email test results, or pay their bills. Being accessible to our patients is one of our main objectives. When our office is closed, the physician on call can be reached by phoning our main office number.
AIM’s doctors rotate the responsibility of being on-call for after-hour emergencies. When one of our patients has an emergency and our office is closed, the doctor on call will make sure the patient is taken care of.
The old-fashioned bond of respect and trust between physician and patient remains alive and well at AIM.
