Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness.  At least three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults.  Internists are often referred to as the “doctor’s doctor” because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.

 

Internists are equipped to deal with whatever problem a patient brings…no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex.  They are specially trained to solve diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time.  They also bring to patients an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women’s health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of eyes, ears, skin, nervous system, and reproductive organs.  We hope this overview will always give credence to our themes… “caring for life” and “ taking care of yourself never felt so good!”
