Internal Medicine

Internal medicine deals with conditions that involve internal organs, including the kidneys and urinary tract, liver, pancreas, endocrine system, heart, and digestive system. Diagnosing an internal medicine problem is often complex, because signs can overlap, so we will likely recommend several different tests for confirmation. Treatment varies depending on the body system involved, and may involve life-long care or monitoring. Internal medicine patients can be acutely sick, but most have chronic, ongoing disease that can wax and wane over time.
