Dr. Michael D Killpack has the following 2 specialties
- 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.<br>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.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

Dr Killpack is the best primary care doctor I have ever had. He is compassionate and patient centered. He is exceptionally gifted with persons with special needs(including disabled, elderly). He is emotionally intelligent in that he doesn't provide opinions for specialties he is not trained for. You can feel a genuine interest in your wellbeing. In every area that is within is skillset, I have seen an improvement
Uncomfortable with you
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael D Killpack - Posted on February 13th, 2013
This doctor's background is Internal Medicine, but has not been practicing it for several years (he's definitely more general). He states he is uncomfortable with patients who have HIV and does not like to prescribe medication for them. He usually refers the patient to another doctor for specific HIV cases. Is not concerned with your pain level and will not not give out pain medications at all even in appropriate situations. His manner is dry, unemotional, and to the point. He will interact very little with you. I don't recommend him to HIV patients at all.
Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2015)
Compassionate Doctor certification is granted to physicians who treat their patients with the utmost kindness. The honor is granted based on a physician's overall and bedside manner scores.
