Your health is our mission
East Paris Internal Medicine Associates provides personalized comprehensive primary care to young, middle-aged and older adults. We practice preventive medicine, emphasizing healthy lifestyles, and obtaining appropriate screening tests when indicated. We diagnose and treat many medical diseases. For individuals with multiple complex medical conditions we manage and coordinate care between various specialists.
Our office is large enough to provide the convenience of on-site services you may need, including laboratory, radiology, bone densitometry, electrocardiograms, spirometry and immunizations. But our office is small enough to know you as an individual. Your health concerns, well-being and satisfaction are very important to us. Our goal is to listen to you and provide compassionate, effective medical care.
Our primary hospital system affiliation is with Spectrum Hospital, but we can work with the other hospital systems as well. Although we work with the local hospital systems, we are not owned by a hospital system. We work for you, the patient. This allows referral to the best specialty care in the Grand Rapids area for your individual needs. We charge no facility fees, keeping the cost of health care down.
East Paris Internal Medicine Associates is a member of Answer Health, an independent physician-owned Physician Organization (PO), developed to improve patient care in all areas. Answer Health performs careful and systematic monitoring of physicians’ adherence to clinical and efficiency performance standards associated with optimal patient care, resulting in Answer Health physicians delivering superior patient outcomes at lower rates compared to typical hospital-owned practices. The physicians at East Paris Internal Medicine Associates are committed to delivering a higher standard of care, and are known for providing value-based medicine with successful outcomes.
Meet the physicians
East Paris Medicine Associates is consistently honored with annual awards for outstanding performance in clinical quality measures and patient care management. But our measure of success is more than awards, it’s waking up in the morning and looking forward to making a difference.
There are two registered nurses available that perform care management for patients. Care management is a service for patients to help them navigate the healthcare system. Care Managers may call after you have been in the hospital to see how you are doing, making sure you can afford your medications and getting you help if you can’t. Care management helps manage chronic illnesses like diabetes and hypertension, getting services in your home if and when you need them. This is a small sample of what care managers do.
