Primary Care for Adults

At Fayetteville Diagnostic Clinic, our internal medicine physicians and advanced practice nurses are committed to providing comprehensive, compassionate, quality health care for adults. 

Internal Medicine physicians, or internists, are primary care doctors for adults. Like a pediatrician who specializes in children’s health, an internist specializes in adult medicine. Internists are residency trained in the prevention and treatment of adult diseases.

From wellness and preventive medicine to more serious health concerns or diseases, an internist is your partner in health throughout your adult life. This is the doctor you see for common ailments that arise throughout the years and someone who will help you monitor your overall health and wellness.

An internal medicine physician gets to know you, your family history, and your individual concerns.

Internal Medicine Services

Caring for the whole patient

Internal Medicine doctors bring to patients an understanding of preventive medicine and men’s and women’s health. According to your age and health profile, your physician may recommend screenings to identify potential health problems. Internists also evaluate overall health, including weight, exercise habits, nutrition, and stress management. We provide an array of vaccines for adults, including annual flu vaccines each fall.

In addition, internists are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time.

Your internist helps you coordinate your care with other medical specialists. Many medical specialists, diagnostic tests, and health screenings are conveniently located at Fayetteville Diagnostic Clinic.

Prescription Refills

Patients who take critical prescription medications are advised to maintain regular lab and office visits recommended by their doctor. Please ask your doctor to write refills for any medications you anticipate needing at your office visit.

Patients who have been seen by the doctor at appropriate intervals may call for refills on some prescriptions (antibiotics excluded). The fastest way to request a refill is through your pharmacy, the myMANA health portal, or the Healow app. Please allow 48 hours for refill requests. Requests received after 2:00 p.m. will be processed within the next two business days. Refills are done Monday through Friday.

Patients who use a mail-order pharmacy will need to notify their provider with the name of the mail-order pharmacy and request a 90-day supply when applicable. If the provider is unable to send in an electronic refill, the office will contact the patient.

MANA physicians and providers are in-network with most insurance plans, including Medicare. Please bring your insurance card to all appointments. Payment for copays, coinsurance, or deductible is due at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, and debit/credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, and Discover).
