- 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. Wellinghoff was very thorough, professional and has a great bedside manner.
My husband's regular doctor was not available at the time that he made his appointment, so he was seen by Dr. Wellinghoff. She looked through his medical records to find that he was on the wrong medicine for his hypertension disorder. His legs were swelling and his heart rate was very very low. She told him that he was taking the wrong medicine for his hypertension because he already had a low heart rate and the medicine that was given to him was making his heart beat even slower. She immediately prescribed a different medicine and adjusted it so that he could feel well again. She saved my husband's life!! I thank God for putting Dr. Wellinghoff over my husband healthy.
