General Internal Medicine
Virginia Mason's general internists are personal physicians who provide long-term, comprehensive care in the office and the hospital, managing both common illnesses and complex problems for adolescents, adults and the elderly.
Care by a Virginia Mason internist is characterized by extensive knowledge and skill in diagnosis and treatment; by the humanistic qualities of integrity, support, sensitivity and compassion; and by personal commitment to patients.
Shingles Vaccine Shortage
Due to the national shortage of Shingrix, Virginia Mason has a very limited supply and is not providing the vaccine to additional patients at this time. Please check with your Virginia Mason provider in the future regarding availability, or you may want to consider getting the vaccine at a different health care facility or pharmacy if you would rather not wait.
Worried About Whooping Cough?
If you have not received a Tdap vaccination or you're not sure, talk with your primary care provider during your next visit. If you don't have a primary care provider, consider making an appointment to establish care at Virginia Mason.
