ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
Department of Internal Medicine focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of non-surgical conditions in adults. The department provides a wide range of high quality cross-specialty health care services, including physical examinations, preventive screenings and immunizations, urgent care for medical conditions, and referrals to surgical specialists when appropriate. Our Internal Medicine Consultants have had broad-based training in General Medicine and in one or more subspecialties. The presence of clinicians with different subspecialty training in the department allows an integrated approach to patient care and helps to limit the volume of referral to other subspecialty departments.
Our Internal Medicine Consultants 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, allergy & immunology, infectious diseases, problems of the nervous system, digestive system and reproductive organs, etc.
