Body What is a doctor of Internal Medicine?
Internal medicine concerns the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of diseases in adults, especially diseases of the internal organs. Doctors of Internal medicine are required to have included in their medical schooling and postgraduate training at least three years dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults. They often act as consultants to other physicians to help solve mystifying diagnostic problems. Doctors of internal medicine are primary care physicians and treat the whole person, not just internal organs and are usually the most skillful at treating a broad range of diseases and are trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and handle severe chronic illnesses in situations where several different illnesses may strike all at the same time. They also bring to patients an understanding of preventive medicine, substance abuse, and mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs. Most elderly adults in the United States see an internal medicine doctor as their primary physician.
