Internists are specialists with extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of medical problems in adults and adolescents. In addition, we focus on preventive care for diseases such as cancer and heart attack. As primary care physicians, we are your health care resource, providing regular check-ups as well as managing complex diseases such as diabetes.
Your internist can provide you with your annual wellness exam, screen for diseases such as breast, prostate and colon cancer, as well as determine your risk for cardiovascular disease.
