Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine specialists are primary care providers who diagnose and treat diseases and conditions in adults. These personal physicians work to prevent disease by establishing long term relationships with patients and helping them understand the effect of nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle on future health. They diagnose and treat chronic and often complex medical conditions such as diabetes, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cardiovascular disease. They also diagnose and treat common conditions of the eyes, skin, nervous system, and screen for conditions such as osteoporosis.

Many patients count on their Internal Medicine specialist to advise them on risk factors for disease, scheduling screenings, tests, and providing recommended vaccinations. The goal of internal medicine providers is to deliver comprehensive care, prevent disease, and control ongoing medical conditions to avoid complications.
