About Northern Inyo Associates Internal Medicine Clinic:

Welcome to the Northern Inyo Associates Internal Medicine Clinic.  Our goal is to provide outstanding care to adult patients in the Bishop area.  Our core service is to provide medical management and care coordination to patients with chronic or complex medical illness and to provide specialized care to older adults. 

We offer our patients:

  • Medication management and care coordination with specialists
  • Preventative care including vaccination and cancer screening
  • Evaluation and treatment of memory loss and other geriatric conditions (also available on a consultation basis)
  • Pre-operative evaluation and management for scheduled surgeries
  • Nursing appointments for blood pressure checks, wound care, and medication checks
  • Same or next day visits for acute problems
  • 24-hour on-call physician coverage
  • Nursing home care at Bishop Care Center  

We currently have three providers in our office. Dr. Wakamiya and Alissa Dell, NP, have established a team-based practice, allowing them to extend their reach to a greater number of patients.  They currently accept new patients. Dr. Wakamiya also maintains a separate Geriatrics consultation-based practice. Dr. Hathaway, an Internist who has been caring for adults in Bishop for more than 30 years, maintains her established primary-care practice.
