Specialists to meet the needs of the communities we serve
Montage Medical Group (MMG) grows in specialty services and numbers of physicians for one simple reason – to meet the changing healthcare needs of the communities we serve.
We provide care for patients requiring the following specialty services:
Internists are equipped to handle the broad and comprehensive spectrum of illnesses that affect adults, and are recognized as experts in diagnosis, in treatment of chronic illness, and in health promotion and disease prevention. Internists are not limited to one type of medical problem or organ system. Our internal medicine physicians see patients 18 years of age and older.
Family Practice physicians provide continuing and comprehensive health care across all ages, genders, diseases, and parts of the body, emphasizing condition management, disease prevention and health promotion. Our family practice physicians see patients older than 12 years of age.
Obstetrics and gynecology
Obstetrics is concerned with the care of women and their unborn children during pregnancy and during childbirth. It is also concerned with the pre-natal health of the fetus and finally the post-natal care of the mother to ensure she is recovering well. Gynecology is the focus on the female reproductive system, including routine primary and preventive care, and treatment of any disorder or disease that is prevalent in the female reproductive system. This would include the organs of the uterus, cervix, ovaries, and vagina. Gynecology may also involve the bowel, bladder, and other portions of the female GI and urinary systems.
Psychiatry is branch of medicine that deals with mental, emotional, or behavioral disorders.
Endocrinology is a branch of medicine concerned with the structure, function, and disorders of the endocrine glands, which are the organs that control hormones. An endocrinologist will deal with diseases that are caused by problems with hormones (i.e., disorders of the thyroid or diabetes, etc.).
Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, functions, and organic disorders of nerves and the nervous system.
Urology is a surgical specialty concerned with the function and disorders of the urinary system in both men and women.
Pulmonary and critical care medicine
Pulmonary is the branch of medicine that deals with the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases affecting the lungs and respiratory tract. Critical care medicine (also called intensive care medicine or intensivists) is a branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions requiring sophisticated organ support and invasive monitoring in an intensive care unit of the hospital.
Sleep medicine is a branch of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and management of sleep disturbances and disorders.
Cardiology is the branch of medicine that deals with diseases and abnormalities of the heart. There are also common subspecialties within cardiology. Non-invasive cardiologists (also called general cardiologists) focus on the diagnosis and treatment of all types of heart disease and commonly have additional expertise in performing and interpreting various types of cardiac imaging studies, i.e., cardiac stress tests, echocardiograms, etc.). Interventional cardiology is a branch of cardiology that focuses on invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that assess and correct blood flow issues in the heart (i.e., cardiac catheterization and angioplasty). Electrophysiology is a branch of cardiology that specializes in heart rhythm disturbances (abnormalities of the beating of the heart).
Palliative care is the branch of medicine that deals with medical care for people with serious illness. It focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.
Physical medicine and rehabilitation
Physical medicine and rehabilitation (also referred to as physiatrist or PM&R) is the branch of medicine concerned with diagnosis, evaluation, and management of persons with physical and/or brain impairment and disability (i.e., care of an individual after a stroke or motor vehicle accident).
Infectious disease is a branch of medicine devoted to the prevention, diagnosis and management of infectious diseases.
Pursuit of optimal health for our patients
MMG providers and services focus on achieving optimal health for our patients through services that are not only restorative (focus on facilitating recovery from illness or injury), but also preventive (focused on reducing risks to retain health) and palliative (maximizing well-being and achieving your life goals when recovery is not possible). We seek our patients’ active participation in their care to achieve this goal of optimal health.
Do not be surprised if our staff address preventive care gaps, such as need for a vaccination or colonoscopy to prevent cancer. We may discuss options for furthering your understanding of chronic condition self-management, or explore your wishes or directives toward end of life, even if you are coming to the physician for a very specific reason. This is simply our holistic focus on your healthcare needs.
