Internal Medicine Physicians specialize in the treatment of adults over the age of 18. You may also hear them referred to by other terms including “internists”, “general internists” and “doctors of internal medicine”.
Internists are trained to deal with whatever problem a patient brings–no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex. They are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. This may include chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma and chronic pain.
At Adelante Healthcare, our Internal Medicine Providers are dedicated to bringing patients an understanding of wellness, both in preventing disease and in promoting health.
