- 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.
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

dr couri has been my doctor for over 20 years. In all that time, I have felt that I was getting the best care possible. He really cares about all your needs And treats you with respect and compassion He is an asset to our community personally and professionally. I can not thank him enough for meeting all my needs.
Dr. Couri's gentle smile, careful listening, and "We will keeping trying things until we see improvements" attitude have been such a wonderful encouragement to me(and to my family). Chronic illness and pain change one's life drastically and create many fears. Having Dr. Couri leading me through such rough waters has truly settled my previously unsettled spirit. As others have mentioned, the staff could not be any more kind, helpful, and friendly. A special shout out to Carrie, who can quickly set a worried mind at ease with her spunk and her friendship. A+ Couri & Company!
Love going to see him! Listens and believes what you have to say. Tons of experience helps him to diagnose your problem(s). I saw several doctors that had no idea what to do with me and within 10 minutes he knew. Nurses and staff are wonderful. Carrie, his nurses, is a wonderful woman and is very polite and helpful! Worth driving almost an hour to see them!
