- 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.

Dr. Tussing has been caring for both of my parents for many years. They both love him and his staff and have been thrilled with the care he has provided them. In my interactions with the doctor and his staff I am also extremely pleased with his caring personality and attention to my parents' health care needs.
After the passing of our Primary Care Provider, upon my niece's recommendation, my sister and I choose Dr. Tussing as our PCP. I find him to be highly intelligent, and to the point. He has been most kind and caring to both of us. Although there are no office hours on Friday or the weekend, calls placed to the answering service are returned by Dr. Tussing with further health instructions. We also find his sense of humor endearing, and am delighted to have found him. Have recommended him to several friends and relatives.
