What exacly is Internal Medicine?
Doctors of Internal Medicine, also called "Internists," focus on adult medicine.  They care for their patients from teenage years through old age.  At least three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases that affect adults.

An Internist is a primary care doctor who has wide-ranging knowledge of complex diseases that affect adults.  With in-depth training, an Internist can help you navigate the increasingly complex and ever-changing world of medical care.  Our Internal Medicine physicians specialize in disease management and prevention.  With a variety of special interests, you're sure to find a doctor who will suit your particular needs.  Should require additional medical attention or specialized surgery, our Internists can refer you to experienced, qualified specialists and other professionals.
