Internal Medicine Q & A

What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine is an area of medical practice focused on improving your chances of recovery from illness or injury by using current medical science and establishing meaningful doctor-patient relationships. Physicians who practice internal medicine go through at least seven years of medical school and training.

This approach to health and wellness includes preventive care, diagnostic tools, and targeted treatments when necessary. Physicians who practice internal medicine are sometimes called doctors of internal medicine, general internists, or internists.

How is chronic disease treated using internal medicine?

Rates of chronic disease continue to rise, leaving a large percentage of the American population at risk of serious health consequences. Internal medicine focuses on managing chronic diseases and helping you move closer to ideal health and wellness.

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer

This is far from a comprehensive list. There are many chronic diseases, all of which have a significant effect on your daily quality of life.

How are chronic diseases treated?

Treating chronic disease begins by managing symptoms. While medications are sometimes necessary, the team at Premier Medical Care focuses on the power of lifestyle changes to change the path of chronic disease.

That process begins with a comprehensive physical exam and a review of your personal health history. You’ll also discuss the details of your lifestyle. All this information gives your health team the details needed to design a customized treatment plan for you.

Making meaningful changes in your diet, activity level, stress level, and sleep habits can do wonders in reducing the symptoms of chronic disease. As you begin to feel better and your body grows stronger, you can add in even more positive changes, creating a positive overall effect.

Your treatment plan will likely shift and change over time as your body adjusts. Some men and women are able to reverse chronic disease over time and regain their health.
