Internal medicine physicians, sometimes called "internists" treat adult patients. Although they often act as primary care physicians, they are different from family physicians because they focus on adults. Internists receive special training in the prevention and treatment of adult diseases.
Internal medicine physicians at Adventist Health are experts at taking care of the whole patient. They are specially trained to diagnose and treat everything from common to rare conditions, including situations where more than one illness strikes at one time.
Our physicians also help coordinate your care when specialists are needed.
