  • 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.

Marilyn Carlin - best primary physician in San Diego, hands down!!

Dr. Carlin has been my primary physician for more than a decade and she is outstanding. Although Scripps tends to schedule patients a bit closer together than caring doctors like Dr. Carlin prefer, never once have I felt like I had a rushed visit, as is so common with physician visits today. Dr. Carlin makes you feel like you are her only patient and her compassion and commitment to excellent medical care is obvious in everything she does. And her fabulous sense of humor makes any visit with her fun. If all physicians practiced medicine the way Dr. Carlin practices medicine, we would be a healthier nation indeed! ;)
