Why Choose an Internist

A doctor of internal medicine specializes in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult patients. A good relationship with your internist could be one of the most useful you have. We are trained to diagnose and treat health problems and we also promote a healthy lifestyle in hopes you live a long life and age well. Internal medicine physicians are different from general practitioners whose training is not concentrated on adults and each patient's overall well being.

Internal medicine physicians are prepared to deal with whatever problem a patient brings -- no matter how rare or complex. We can help with the every day health concerns that affect many adults. We are trained to find answers when others cannot seem to diagnose the health problem you are experiencing. This is done by gaining an extensive understanding of each patient's history in order to provide the best treatments and make the best recommendations for lifestyle choices that will improve your well being.
