Dr. Rogers began practicing at South Central Regional Medical Center in 2003 as a Hospitalists. He served patients admitted to the hospital for over 16 years. He explains, “As a hospitalist, I have treated a variety of illnesses for patients during their hospitalization. Now, as a clinic based internal medicine physician, I find treatment gratifying because I get to know each patient on a personal level and tailor care for them.”

Internal medicine physicians are trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. With a broad background in all areas of medicine, complex adult diseases are commonly treated by the physician.

“High blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and high cholesterol are the main types of conditions we see,” said Dr. Rogers. “We also handle things as simple as skin infections to things as complicated as end-stage kidney disease. I love internal medicine because it is an interesting field where you make connections between things that do not seem to be connected.”
