As we grow older, our bodies become less resistant to the natural decay of living organisms and it becomes more important to keep a keen eye on one’s health.

Revive MD Internal Medicine offers the services of Dr. Kalpana Gorthi, FACP, centrally located on Wickham Road in Suntree and Viera. Revive MD offers its patients services on a diverse range of topics, including:

• Prevention and Wellness

• Diabetes

• Hypertension

• Thyroid

• Bladder Issues

• Osteoporosis

• Chronic Disease

Management

Gorthi works personally with her patients to provide the specialized care that they need in a friendly atmosphere at Revive MD Internal Medicine.

“Internal medicine is a specialization for an in-depth knowledge of chronic disease,” Gorthi explained. “We get more training in every organ-system; as (the internal systems) get more complicated with age, as in every geriatric system, there are multiple issues (and we address) how each medication interacts. (Internal medicine) is really a specialization of all the sub-specialties; you need a good ‘door-keeper’ to diagnose and figure out what’s going on, and to refer to a (more specific) specialist if needed.”

Although Gorthi has only been practicing in the Suntree/Viera area since July 2018, she already has garnered excellence in her online reviews, consistently being highly rated by her patients. Outside of her current office, Gorthi has been practicing for almost 13 years.

“It’s awesome, (working in Viera),” Gorthi said. “I can get to know my patients, spend time with them and just know everything. It’s a smaller practice — it’s not like a very corporate kind of feel. (Patients) feel welcome — they can walk in and see familiar faces sitting there (at the counter.)

“It’s more comfortable for older patients also, who may not be very tech savvy,” Gorthi added. “They can walk in and read their papers, or talk to the receptionist, and they see me. Mostly, I’m working in the front office just to see who my patients are.

“It’s a smaller practice, more like an old-fashioned family kind of feel. I like it because it gives me satisfaction, I’m involved in all aspects of their care.”
