What's New

Welcome New Neighbor!!
General Internal Medicine would like to extend a healthy - Welcome Neighbor - to Ballston Urgent Care.

Ballston Urgent Care is now open in our Ballston office building on the first floor, Suite 100. They welcome WALK-IN patients from 7:30 AM until 8:00 PM, Monday through Friday and 8:00 AM until 4:00 PM on Saturday.

GIMG patients now have a convenient, quality urgent care facility for those same day or walk-in services that do not require a visit to your GIMG primary care provider. We have a special relationship with Ballston Urgent Care which allows GIMG patients a more integrated health experience than with other urgent care centers. GIMG patients do not have to re-register with the urgent care and their medical records are immediately available to the urgent care providers to ensure the highest quality of care. In the event that the urgent care providers feel your GIMG primary care provider is better suited to handle your visit, every possible accommodation will be made for you to be seen by your GIMG practitioner that day.

GIMG looks forward to the increased access to the convenient, quality care that Ballston Urgent Care provides and our future relationship with them.

Welcome Ballston Urgent Care!

Platinum Portal Available (includes e-Visits)
GIMG announces PLATINUM PATIENT PORTAL for those who wish to e-Visit with their practitioner.

The wait is over and we are now able to offer our patients the ability to have a SECURE e-Visit with their practitioner through our Patient Preferred Access Portal. Click here or on the "Learn More" link under the orange 24 hour button above.
