What is Internal Medicine?
Internists are sometimes called primary care physicians. They are fully trained specialists in adult medicine, and are specially trained to care for complex medical problems. Our Board Certified physicians are prepared to handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where many illnesses occur at the same time. Internists are also capable of performing a variety of technical medical procedures. Severe medical illnesses often require the broad training and skills of internists to coordinate highly trained care teams. As internists, we keep the whole patient in mind, rather than merely focusing on a single disease or organ system.
