What is Internal Medicine?
First and foremost, internal medicine is focused on preventing, diagnosing, and treating diseases in adults. Whether you or your loved ones simply need short-term care, or if you are in need of specialized treatment for chronic illnesses, our internal medicine doctors, also known as internists, can help.
Do Internists Treat Children?
Typically, internists only treat adults. Although, internal medicine doctors can become certified in Combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics (Med-Peds for short) in order to treat the whole family, from young children to aging seniors.
Why Should I See an Internal Medicine Doctor?
When you are in need of specialized disease diagnosis and treatment of your internal organs, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, or liver, an internist can provide you with precise care. People with diabetes, high cholesterol, or hypertension can benefit from seeing an internal medicine doctor, as these medical professionals are highly educated and experienced in treating all internal organs and the diseases that may affect them.
