internal medicine

Internal medicine physicians care for patients from young adulthood into their senior years. At Premier HealthCare Associates, we combine the latest diagnostic technology with the talents of a highly skilled staff.

At least three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists are sometimes referred to as the "doctor's doctor" because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.

Dr. Crognale emphasizes preventive medicine as well as the treatment of acute illnesses and the management of chronic disease such as hypertension, heart disease and respiratory problems. We also treat illnesses due to hormonal imbalances, infectious diseases and disorders of the digestive system.

When advisable, you will be referred to a specialist. However, we remain your primary provider, coordinating your care and making certain all your needs are met.

For your convenience, we offer bone densitometry testing and laboratory services (blood draws) within our office as well as:
