About Internal Medicine

Doctors of internal medicine focus on caring for adults and have had special study and training focusing on dealing with adult diseases. To qualify, at least three years of their medical school and postgraduate training must be dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat conditions that affect adults. Commonly called the "doctor's doctor," they are frequently called upon as consultants for other physicians — meaning that you can have that much more confidence when your treatment comes from our own doctor.

What Is an "Internist?"

This term is just another word for doctors of internal medicine or doctors for adults. However, you may see them referred to by several other names. These are not to be confused with "interns," who are doctors in their first year of residency training. Although these practitioners may act as primary care physicians, they are not "family physicians," "family practitioners," or "general practitioners," because their work focuses exclusively on adults, making them uniquely equipped to treat the patients for whom they have a deep passion that's codified in the committed education they pursue.
