Internal Medicine Associates was started in 1976 to provide care for the residents of Cumberland County and the surrounding Tri-county areas. Thanks to our supportive patients, we have grown our practice into one of the most successful and busiest internal medicine practices in the area.

Consensus Health Primary Care Internal Medicine Associates is committed to providing patients with convenient access to high-quality care. We believe that providing high-quality care is not only about the medical advice that we dispense, but more importantly, about the relationships, we have with our patients.
