Medicine Consultation Service

The Medical Consultation Service at San Francisco General Hospital evaluates and treats patients with medical problems who are hospitalized on non-medical services. The Service is staffed by an attending physician who also supervises a third-year internal medicine resident. Our attending physicians come from both the Division of General Internal Medicine (DGIM) and from the Division of Hospital Medicine (DHM) and have extensive experience with the medical issues that commonly arise in hospitalized patients. We are available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week for assistance. Additionally, we make recommendations regarding perioperative risk reduction for patients requiring surgery or other invasive procedures.
