Internal Medicine in Boone, NC

Appalachian Regional Internal Medicine Specialists treat the whole person, not just the illness. Our internal medicine services focus on prevention and wellness strategies, new treatment options and emerging health strategies. Internal medicine physicians, or internists, are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults – from those who are healthy to those with complicated illnesses. They are especially well trained in the diagnosis of puzzling medical problems, in the ongoing care of chronic illnesses, and in caring for patients with more than one disease. Internists also specialize in health promotion and disease prevention.

You might consider seeing an internal medicine specialist if you have conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and chronic lung disease. If you have Medicare, Appalachian Regional Internal Medicine Specialists provides Annual Wellness Visits. Call us for more information.

Dr. Stark, Hailey and staff are great! He is thorough, knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable and easy to be with. Hailey is always pleasant and efficient and she returns calls – a plus!

Great appointment with Dr. Que. All the staff members (Emily and Pam) were very professional. They helped make me feel comfortable from beginning to end.

Ian is my nurse practitioner and he is amazing! He listens to my complaints without judgment and is very personable, knowledgeable, and thorough. The front staff is excellent with check in/out and all of the nurses are so nice and respond to any questions I have promptly. I would highly recommend this practice to any of my friends or family members in the High Country and would commute if necessary to continue coming here.

Great experience from check-in to check out. The staff are always so helpful and friendly. My provider Karen Criminger takes her time and listens thoroughly to my concerns. The provider and their staff are so kind, and always smiling. My phone calls and results and always returned in a timely manner. My family and I are so grateful for such a wonderful physician’s office and it’s staff.
