Dr. Mpacko is an internist physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic. Her assignment as internist include adult clinical visits, and acts as primary care physicians because she treats a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. Dr. Mpacko also works to help patients maintaining optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease. In addition to treating the common cold and flu, Dr. Mpacko also treats chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.  She also refers patients to specialists when medically needed. As an example, patients with severe allergies could be referred to an allergist for added diagnostic tests or treatment options.
