Internal Medicine physicians are to adults what pediatricians are to children, coordinating the care of patients on an outpatient basis at the clinic and on an inpatient basis at Forrest General Hospital and Wesley Medical Center. Internal Medicine physicians treat patients with:
- Diseases of the heart and blood vessels
- Digestive disorders
- Kidney diseases
- Respiratory disorders
Internal Medicine physicians also treat patients as a whole by helping them understand the importance of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health). They uniquely focus on adult medicine and are dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases that primarily affect adults.
