What is Internal Medicine?
Internists are sometimes called primary care physicians. They are fully trained specialists in adult medicine, much like pediatricians are specialists in the care of children. Internists are specially trained to care for complex medical problems in the office and in the hospital (including coronary and intensive care units and the emergency department), providing a smooth continuum of care. We are prepared to handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where many illnesses occur at the same time. Internists are also capable of performing a variety of technical medical procedures. Severe medical illnesses often require the broad training and skills of internists to coordinate highly trained care teams. As internists, we keep the whole patient in mind, rather than merely focusing on a single disease or organ system.
Working closely with our physicians are physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs). Also known as "advanced practice providers," PAs and NPs provide follow-up care for acute or chronic illness if your doctor is not available, and may provide annual exams and procedures.
