Addressing Adult Health Needs
Internists are physicians who focus exclusively on caring for adults. These doctors are at the other end of the age spectrum from pediatricians, who limit their practice to patients 18 and under. Internists receive a broad scope of training that prepares them to diagnose and treat a wide variety of diseases, including the most common chronic conditions more often seen in adulthood, such as diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.
Not only can internists diagnose and treat acute and chronic illnesses, but, they can also help you stay healthy and prevent disease. And if you need to see specialists, your internist can help you navigate that process and serve as your advocate if you require care from different healthcare services.
