Why Choose An Internist?
Having a personal physician is an important part of preventing sickness and promoting a long, healthy life. Regular checkups are key to detecting health conditions early, making them easier to treat.
An internist can alert you to problems before you know they exist. Internists are specially trained to not only diagnose and treat diseases, but to prevent the initial onset of those diseases by controlling risk factors such as high blood pressure and cholesterol. Internists are also proficient in the detection of cancer, as well as problems related to the digestive, respiratory, joint, vascular, internal organ and cardiovascular systems.
A long-term, patient-physician relationship provides the internist with extensive understanding of a patient’s unique medical history and enables them to address specific, ongoing health concerns that factor into a patient’s overall health equation.

Internal medicine is the branch and specialty of medicine concerning the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of diseases in adults, especially of internal organs. Doctors of internal medicine, also called “internists”, are required to have included in their medical schooling and postgraduate training at least three years dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists are sometimes referred to as the “doctor’s doctor,” because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems. While the name “internal medicine” may lead one to believe that internists only treat “internal” problems, this is not the case. Doctors of internal medicine treat the whole person, not just internal organs.
Internists are trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. They also bring to patients an understanding of preventive medicine, men’s and women’s health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs. Most older adults in the United States see an internist as their primary physician.
