Internal Medicine Overview

Internal medicine physicians, also known as primary care physicians (PCP), provide care for the adult population’s day-to-day medical needs, offering comprehensive medical evaluations, diagnosis, treatment and prevention. An internal medicine physician can serve as a patient’s primary care provider for both chronic and acute medical conditions. They are also trained to care for more complex medical issues.

Internal medicine physicians treat conditions including:

  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Digestive disorders
  • Diseases of the heart and blood vessels
  • Geriatrics
  • Infections
  • Kidney diseases
  • Respiratory disorders

What is the difference between an internal medicine physician and a family medicine physician?

Internal medicine physicians specialize in diagnosing, treating and preventing disease specifically in adult patients. They provide wellness visits, management of long-term problems like blood pressure, and they also treat acute illnesses.

Family medicine physicians receive training to care for both children and adults. Their training is broad-based to include wellness checkups, disease management (like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc.), and routine illnesses or injuries. Some patients like to have the whole family treated by the same physician, while others may transition to family medicine after they “outgrow” the pediatric age group. Family medicine physicians also have training in women’s health services.

Why should I see an internal medicine physician?

It is important to talk about preventive care with your doctor. A primary care physician serves as the key team member to your overall health care team by providing routine and preventive screenings to prevent and monitor chronic conditions. A few examples of preventive screenings and care are immunizations, blood pressure screening, mental health assessments, diabetes screening and diet and exercise counseling.
