Internal Medicine Services


Internal Medicine

Internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness. Internists are equipped to deal with whatever problem a patient brings — no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex. They are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. They also bring to patients an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women’s health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs.

Pain Management

Pain can be an incapacitating condition, but there are ways to keep it under control. Whether pain is from arthritis, cancer treatments, fibromyalgia, or an old injury, a patient needs to find a way to get his/her pain under control. The first step in pain management is scheduling an appointment with a doctor to determine the cause of pain and learn which pain management approach is often the most effective.

There are many different pain management options available. Pain management can be simple or complex, depending on the cause of the pain. Some conditions can often be alleviated with physical therapy. Other options may include procedures, medication, counseling, acupuncture or alternative therapies.
