Mid Carolina Internal Medicine Has Moved!

Mid Carolina Internal Medicine has moved to a new location on the Lexington Medical Center campus. The physician practice is now at 120 West Hospital Drive in West Columbia.

As specialists in internal medicine, Mid Carolina Internal Medicine’s physicians are trained to prevent, diagnose, and treat illnesses and diseases that affect adults ages 18 and up. In addition to providing quality primary care, the dedicated staff of health professionals helps to coordinate the care of patients to other medical specialists should the need arise.

The physicians have a strong emphasis on preventative care, striving to help adults stay healthy with annual check-ups, early detection, health and medication monitoring, preventive health screenings, and special health and wellness programs.
