Internal medicine specialists, called internists, are trained in all aspects of adults health. Because internists specialize in adult health, they are very experienced in diagnosing and treating age -related diseases that affect adults and those conditions that result from long term effects of lifestyle choices.
Your internal medicine doctor will get to know you and your health history to help you maintain good health. He or she coordinates your healthcare with specialists as needed (such as cardiologists, orthopedic surgeons or others) and maintains your prescription to keep you safe.
