Doctors of Internal Medicine (also known as “internists”) care for the whole patient
“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.”
We are primary care physicians but we are unique in our focus on adult medicine. We spend all our time diagnosing and treating adults. We don’t deliver babies. We don’t treat young children. We don’t do major surgery. At least three of our seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases primarily affecting adults. Internists aim to coordinate the care of our patients for life. We also bring to patients an understanding of wellness including disease prevention and the promotion of health including women’s health. In today’s complex world, it can be hard to find your way in the medical maze. That’s why you need an internist.
