Internal Medicine

An Internist is a physician who wishes to be responsible for the overall health care of adults, from adolescents to the elderly.  The Internist is regarded by most patients as their principal doctor.

An Internist has had intensive training as a specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of complex and critical illness.  His/her training emphasized issues ranging from periodic examinations of healthy people and management of chronic diseases, to treatment in the Intensive Care Unit.  This differs from that of general or family practitioners in its concentration on the medical subspecialties rather than on other fields such as pediatrics, orthopedics and surgery.  Frequently Internists serve as consultants to other physicians including surgeons, obstetricians, general or family practitioners and other Internists.

As Internists, we feel a major responsibility for the education of our patients and the public regarding health care issues.  Today there is increasing evidence that prevention and early detection are improving the outlook for some of the most common problems in our society, cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity.

Quality care is the joint responsibility of an informed public and concerned physicians.
