GIM at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center

The Internal Medicine Practice at Johns Hopkins Bayview provides high-quality care to patients who have an acute or chronic illness, need a routine health test or just want to consult with someone about their health concerns. We care for patients with many common health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, arthritis and heart disease. We also are experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of uncommon illnesses.

In addition to providing quality care for patients, our practice also supports the Internal Medicine Residency Training Program at Johns Hopkins Bayview, teaching students, medical residents and other doctors in the community.

Our health care providers are committed to creating long-term patient/provider relationships. When visiting the practice, you may always see a familiar face. In fact, the practice faculty and staff have more than 70 years of combined experience, allowing us to offer continuity of care not always available at other primary care facilities.
