- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I was a patient of Dr. Thigpen for over 20 yrs. before moving to California. I think the world of Doc as we would call him, his over all service was and still is the best.
I have been a patient of Dr. Thigpen for many years. I can honestly say this doctor cares about his patients. I'm a baby when it comes to physicians. He takes the time out with me and talk to calm me down since I suffer with white coat syndrome. That a condition when you see a doctor or nurse in a white coat, your heart rate increases along with your blood pressure. Dr. Thigpen has never rushed me to get to other patients that are waiting. I can't say anything bad about Dr. Thigpen. I wish we had other doctors like this doctor. Oh please do not let me forget about my nurse (Terry), who is no longer there. Terri was like a sister to me. She really did take time out of her BUSY schedule to always talk to me about anything. I will always cherish out relationship and how she made me feel. She will be missed.
