Specialized Health Care for Adults
Physicians who practice internal medicine are experts in medical conditions that affect adults of all ages. Internists are well prepared to treat patients with multiple or complex conditions, and to diagnose puzzling symptoms. They’ve been trained to care for patients with a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions, including: diabetes, thyroid disorders, arthritis, flu, hepatitis, epilepsy, stroke, psychiatric disorders, skin problems, chronic pain, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, and heart disease. They also have experience caring for patients in the hospital setting.
