Unlike a family practice physician, the internist has special training in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases and conditions.

When to See an Internal Medicine Doctor?
Your internal medicine doctor monitors your ongoing health and wellness along with any chronic medical conditions. You may be referred to an internist by your family practice physician when you have a more complex or chronic condition, which is why internists are sometimes referred to as "the doctor's doctor". Your internist can:
Provide preventive and wellness care, including annual checkups
Identify and treat common and complex medical conditions and illnesses
Address substance abuse and mental health issues
Treat common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs, however they do not see pregnant patients or children
Refer you to highly trained specialists for more complicated health concerns
Our internal medicine physicians look forward to serving you. We want to make sure you and your family members are receiving the preventative checkups needed to help keep your health on track. Call to make an appointment today!
