Care As You Age
Memorial Regional Health offers internal medicine—a medical specialty that dedicates itself to the general health and well being of adults in the realms of prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness. At least three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults.
Internists are sometimes referred to as the “doctor’s doctor,” because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.
