Internal medicine doctors, also called "internists," care for adults throughout their life span. They receive training that focuses on preventing and treating adult diseases, including those of the heart and lungs, urinary tract, stomach and intestines. Internal medicine doctors also diagnose and treat chronic diseases like diabetes and arthritis.
As your primary doctor, your internist will be with you throughout any illness or injury to provide comprehensive and coordinated care.
