Frequently Asked Questions

Feel free to give us a call with any questions you may have. 

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine refers to the area of medicine that’s focused on adult care, as opposed to pediatrics which is focused on the care of children. It includes general and preventive care as well as management of acute and chronic conditions within a wide array of specialty areas, including cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology and other areas. Plus, it includes health and medical services tailored specifically to the needs of adult men and women, as well as treatment for mental health issues and substance abuse issues.

Is an internal medicine doctor the same as a family doctor?

No, an internal medicine doctor, or internist, specializes in the care and treatment of adult patients while a family doctor cares for patients of all ages.

Why is it important to see an internist?

Just as it’s important for a child to see a pediatrician skilled in the care of childhood diseases and health issues, it’s important for adults to see a doctor with specific training in their needs. The health needs of adults can change dramatically as they get older, and seeing a doctor with skills and experience in adult health needs ensures the most effective and most appropriate care is delivered to help maintain optimal health during the adult years. Internists understand the signs of diseases more likely to occur during adulthood, and they also know what tests and screening panels to perform to avoid serious diseases. Having an internist ensures your care is always optimized for your needs as you age.
