Board certified in both internal medicine and geriatrics, Dr. Stabell received her medical degree and post graduate medical training from Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. Before joining AMS, Dr. Stabell served three years active duty as Chief of Internal Medicine at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
Modern medical science not only can treat and cure a greater range of diseases than ever before, it can also enhance the greater life expectancy we enjoy as a result. As an internist in Alton IL, Dr. Stabell serves as a personal physician, treating patients when illness occurs and offering advice on lifestyle changes that help patients maintain their good health. This preventive approach includes regular check-ups and adult immunizations.
Dr. Stabell also provides individual counseling for weight loss, smoking cessation, and cholesterol control.
Because many patients have more than one medical condition requiring evaluation and treatment, Dr. Stabell strives to integrate all facets of the patient’s medical care. Her special interests in the field of internal medicine include: hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, stomach ulcer, thyroid disease, asthma, chronic lung disease, acne, headache, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis and allergy problems. Today there is a resounding need for specialists in geriatrics, the branch of medicine which deals with conditions and problems experienced the patients during the aging process. With her combination of geriatric and internal medicine board certifications, Dr. Stabell addresses a broad spectrum of health conditions in patients ranging from early adulthood to the elderly.
An informed patient is a more satisfied patient.
Educating patients is an important part of the AMS philosophy. This means explaining your treatment in detail, providing you with literature on your illness or treatment, and generally making certain that you understand the care that is prescribed for you. The more informed you are, the better able you will be to participate in your progress, so we encourage questions.
