Internal Medicine

A physician specializing in internal medicine (called an internist) combines the characteristics of a diagnostician and a consultant in disease prevention and health promotion. Primary care internists provide a continuum of care between the hospital and the outpatient setting. Internists are experts at caring for patients with multi-system diseases.

Internists specialize in treatment of adult medical problems, including heart and lung disease, cancer, diabetes, stomach/intestinal problems and disease prevention.
