Care for Adults
Internal medicine providers focus 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.
An internist can meet a wide range of health care needs from routine or every-day concerns to more serious matters. Are you generally healthy? An internal medicine specialist can help you prevent disease.
Do you have a chronic condition such as diabetes? An internal medicine provider can help you keep it under control.
Do you have one or more health issues? Or are you experiencing new problems as you get older? An internist can diagnose and provide non-surgical treatments for complicated and severe diseases, especially those related to internal organs such as the heart, stomach, kidney and liver.
