b_250_250_16777215_00_images_stories_steto-v.jpgInternal medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Doctors of Internal Medicine, also known as internists, are sometimes referred to as the "doctor's doctor," because they are often called upon to act as consultants by other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.  They are especially skilled in the management of patients who have undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes. An internist cares for hospitalized and ambulatory patients and may play a major role in teaching or research.

Internists are equipped 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 difficult diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. They also bring to patients an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women's health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs.

In today's complex medical environment, internists take pride in caring for their patients for life -- in the office or clinic, during hospitalization and intensive care, and in nursing homes. When other medical specialists, such as surgeons or obstetricians, are involved, they coordinate their patient's care and manage difficult medical problems associated with that care.

Internal Medicine Subspecialties

Internists can choose to focus their practice on general internal medicine, or may take additional training to "subspecialize" in one of 13 areas of internal medicine. Cardiologists, for example, are doctors of internal medicine who subspecialize in diseases of the heart. The training an internist receives to subspecialize in a particular medical area is both broad and deep.

In Arcadia Clinic, the team of physicians include an internist and cardiologist that is available to consult, and evaluates and treats different conditions relates to his medical specialty.
