What is internal medicine?
Internal medicine is a branch of healthcare that focuses on conditions and diseases that primarily impact the internal function of your body. Internists are doctors who have specialized in diagnosing and treating these types of conditions. Often, an internist will have a specialization in a certain part of the body. This could include a focus on a specific organ or particular organ systems. Internal medicine doctors can provide a broad spectrum of information that will help their patients understand how to best support the overall health and long-term well-being of their body. At Express Healthcare LLC, we are proud to offer internal medicine services to patients in Maryland.
What does an internal medicine doctor do?
A doctor who specializes in general internal medicine primarily works to manage complex diseases or conditions that may impact multiple systems within or areas of the body. Internists are physicians who have specialized in the detection, prevention, and treatment of adult illnesses. Internal doctors are often brought in to diagnose complicated conditions with no clear and obvious cause. An internal medicine specialist can provide comprehensive care and support for patients with an array of conditions that may be co-occurring. When you require a diagnosis for an unknown illness or chronic disease, an internal medicine specialist will have the tools and expertise necessary to narrow the scope of your testing and provide you with a precise diagnosis while also helping you decide on a course of treatment.
Why should I see an internist?
Often, adults will use an internal medicine doctor as their primary care physician because they have a broad range of expertise that is directly applicable to adult healthcare. An internist can provide diagnosis and ongoing treatment for adults who have chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, as well as other issues that could negatively impact their overall health and quality of life. An internal medicine physician can offer important preventative screenings such as those for cholesterol, blood pressure, acute illness, and even mammograms. An internist is a great physician to rely on for coordinating care between different specialists because they have an in-depth understanding of what each component of your care should entail.
