Internal medicine doctors are trained in the overall care of adults, much like family medicine doctors. Most people aren’t quite sure what an internist does. Their first guess is usually a doctor who deals with internal organs. Well, that’s part of it, but the discipline of internal medicine involves a lot more.
At Memorial Hospital, we have internists who typically serve as a personal physician for adults and are skilled in disease prevention and in managing complex disorders of the body that don’t require surgery, like diabetes. Internal medicine education may also involve a concentration in at least one specialty area, which often involves the treatment of chronic diseases for adults.
Our providers offer expert care, and all are connected with the area’s top specialists, in the event that you need more specialized evaluation or treatment.
