Internal medicine is a branch of primary care that focuses on the health care of adults. Doctors of internal medicine are known as “internists” or “general internists” and shouldn’t be confused with “interns,” who are doctors in their first year of training after medical school.
Internists can provide general health care as well as non-surgical treatment for complicated and severe diseases of the blood and internal organs such as the heart, stomach, kidney and liver. PeaceHealth Medical Group internists work with patients to help prevent disease and to manage chronic health conditions as well as diagnosing and treating new health problems.
