About Our Doctors
What We Do
All of our doctors are Internists, or doctors of Internal Medicine. We are different from other doctors because we specialize in adult health care. We have been trained to prevent, find, and treat illness in adults. We are ready to care for any adult sickness, no matter how common or rare it is, no matter how easy or hard it is to treat. Some problems will be referred to specialists, but we will manage your care even when other doctors are involved.
Dr. Chendraj has extra training in Cardiology (diseases of the heart and blood vessels). Dr. Mark Goggin and Dr. Doug Rush are also fully trained in Pediatrics. In addition to caring for adults, they provide comprehensive care from birth through adulthood.
