What is Internal Medicine?
Internal Medicine is the practice of adult primary care medicine. An internist is trained in depth in assessing and managing a wide spectrum of adult medical conditions. Examples of the conditions we commonly help patients manage include hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, asthma, emphysema, thyroid conditions, headaches, musculoskeletal pain, depression, anxiety, infections, minor injuries, and others. We often will be the first stop for one of our patients with a new medical problem. If the complexities of the patient’s illness or the skills needed to manage it are outside our training, then we will refer a patient to the appropriate specialist. We generally do not see people under 18 years of age, do not do surgery, and do not practice obstetrics.
