Internal Medicine at USA Health
Internal medicine specialists, or internists, diagnose and treat diseases in adults. An internist may act as your primary care physician, treating you for general illnesses as well as providing complex care. Internists with additional training may also sub-specialize in certain areas of medicine such as cardiology, endocrinology, nephrology, pulmonology, gastroenterology and rheumatology.
