Q: Do AIM physicians see patients in the hospital?

A: Our physicians specialize in the practice of outpatient medicine, allowing us to devote our full attention to the patients we see here – without being “called away” to the hospital.

At Phoebe, our hospitalized patients are cared for by the Phoebe Hospitalists, Internists whose sole scope of practice is in-patient medicine. They are in the hospital 24 hours daily. We have excellent, timely communication with the hospitalists, ensuring that your office records are sent to the hospital for their review. Likewise, upon discharge – your important studies, notes, and discharge needs and instructions are sent to us on the day of discharge so that your in-patient and out-patient care are “seamless”.

At Phoebe North (formerly Palmyra Medical Center), AIM is fortunate to have Drs. Rao and Mehta, both Internists and Critical Care specialists, to take care of our patients.
