Who We Are
Novant Health Forsyth Internal Medicine is more than a doctors' office. It is a trusted member of the Winston-Salem, Forsyth County community. Our practice is one of the most established internal medicine practices in the area. Everyone in our office- doctors, nurses and staff- are committed to our patients, and treat them just as we would members of our own families.
Why Internal Medicine
The physicians at Novant Health Forsyth Internal Medicine are board certified in internal medicine. This area of practice deals solely with the health of adults. Unlike family physicians who also treat infants and children, internal medicine doctors are experts in the health and medical concerns of patients from early adulthood through geriatrics.
Routine Care and Specialized Care
In addition to providing routine well-patient care, we specialize in chronic disease management, especially in patients who have multiple disease processes. We routinely treat internal disorders including Diabetes Mellitus, gastrointestinal tract problems (GI tract problems), allergies, immune system abnormalities and stress-related disorders.

Dr. John Wolfe specializes in rheumatology. This allows our patients suffering from arthritis, and other joint and soft tissue disorders to receive specialized care at our same convenient location, and have that care integrated seamlessly into the rest of their care.

In addition to internal medicine, Dr. Richard Marx specializes in infectious diseases and travel medicine. This field deals with diagnosing and treating common and complex diseases acquired at home or abroad. Please click here to learn more about infectious diseases and travel medicine.
