Intensivist Group

Intensivists are internal medicine physicians who have additional training and are board certified in the management of severely or critically ill patients. This relatively new specialty improves patient care by having physicians with expertise and experience in caring for critically ill patients at the patient’s bedside immediately, if necessary. Intensivists coordinate patient care with the primary care physician, other specialists and surgeons as needed. This model has gained worldwide acceptance and is growing rapidly because of improved patient care.
