HANNIBAL, Mo. — Hannibal Regional Medical Group recently added internal medicine physician Dr. Priyanka Yerragorla to its team. She earned her medical degree from Zaporozhye State Medical University in Ukraine and completed her residency at Metropolitan Hospital Center in New York.
“Internal Medicine is where we build a great longitudinal relationship with patients and their families. I enjoy educating preventive care, providing comprehensive care, and being an advocate for my patients,” Yerragorla said in a press release.
Internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness. They are trained in the diagnosis of puzzling medical problems, the ongoing care of chronic illnesses and in caring for patients with more than one disease.
“It is important for me to educate patients not only regarding their medical illnesses but also other preventative measures, healthy lifestyle and medication compliance. Studies show patients who are active in healthcare decision-making have superior outcomes,” Yerragorla said. “Having trained and worked in diverse communities, I look forward to settling down and serving the Hannibal community.”
