Can you remember the good old days when “doctor” meant visiting a trustworthy, experienced physician and life-long family friend right around the corner?
A doctor who could actually get in to see for just about any kind of problem when you were still actually sick (instead of two weeks later), you know what we mean, good old fashioned, tender, loving care that you can afford! Finally being able to feel yourself unhurried and listened to?
A place where you spend more time with the doctor, less time waiting, and no time on the hassles of insurance, paperwork, and bureaucracy...
Welcome to our office!
We are a small, solo physician practice, located in downtown Coral Gables, Fl. Our main goal is to make personalized medicine available to anyone and everyone.
Dr. Deschamps is trained in Internal Medicine-Primary Care, but he specializes in one on one interaction with you. That is, old fashioned history taking, physical examination, assessment of available data, generation of a clinical Impression and recommendations with the opportunity for you to choose the best course or option suited to your particular situation.
The term internal medicine originates from the German term Innere Medizin, popularized in Germany in the late 19th century to describe physicians who combined the science of the laboratory with the care of patients. Many early-20th century American physicians studied medicine in Germany and brought this medical field to the United States. Thus, the name "internal medicine" was adopted in imitation of the existing German term.
It used to be that you had the same doctor all your life. Your internist kept track of all the elements of your medical history. The challenge today is to deliver that same old-fashioned care. In today’s environment internal medicine is the discipline that most allows the doctor to know the whole person.
Internists have been equipped to deal with whatever problem a patient presents and to know when to go for a specialist’s opinion. They are specially trained to handle situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. Internists also try to give their patients an awareness of the importance of disease prevention and the promotion of good health.
