Internal Medicine

CentraCare's internal medicine physicians provide primary and specialty health care for adults at multiple locations.

Doctors of internal medicine, often called "internists" or "general internists," focus on adult medicine. They care for their patients for life — from the teen years through old age. Internists have had special study and training focusing disease prevention.

Internists are sometimes referred to as the "doctor's doctor," because they often are called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.

Internists also promote disease prevention by encouraging healthy lifestyles, immunizations and the use of certain medications. They are specially trained to diagnose complex medical problems and treat severe chronic illnesses.
