Internal Medicine & Specialty Clinics
Internal medicine is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis, management, and nonsurgical treatment of unusual or serious diseases.
Doctors of Internal Medicine focus on adult medicine and have had special training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. Internists are sometimes referred to as the "doctor's doctor," because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.
Simply put, internists are Doctors of Internal Medicine referred to by several terms, including "internists," "general internists" and "doctors of internal medicine." Don't mistake them with "interns," who are doctors in their first year of residency training. Although internists may act as primary care physicians, they are not "family physicians," "family practitioners," or "general practitioners," whose training is not solely concentrated on adults and may include surgery, obstetrics, and pediatrics.
