What is an Internal Medicine physician?
Internal medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called Internists. Our doctors care for ambulatory patients (out-patients) acting as their primary care physician. In addition to preventive medicine, internists are trained to manage serious and complex illnesses for all ages of adult patients.

Why should I select an Internist as my doctor?
Internists receive additional training beyond medical school, typically three years, in order to achieve Board Certification in internal medicine. This additional training includes conditions of the heart, endocrine system, digestive system, blood, infectious disease, kidney, lungs/ respiratory, geriatric medicine and many other conditions affecting adults.

Why is it important to be Board Certified?
Board Certification means that the doctor has completed specialist training in Internal Medicine and has passed the board exam for certification with the American Board of Internal Medicine. Continuing medical education is a requirement to keep board certification. This sets the standard for excellence in the practice of Internal Medicine and is the “Gold Standard” of the profession as the physician has achieved the highest levels of education.
